Gombe partners NBAIS on Quranic education

Gombe state governor, Alhaji Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, said Monday that the state government is collaborating with the National Board of Arabic and Islamic Studies ( NBAIS), to ensure effective integration of Qur’anic education into a formal system of learning.

Governor Yahaya stated this in a speech during the opening ceremony of the 24th Annual National Qur’anic Recitation Competition, organised by the Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’ah Wa’ikamatis sunnah (JIBWIS), with headquarters in Jos and held at Pantami Stadium, Gombe.

He said through the partnership with NBAIS, his government intends to create an opportunity for Qur’anic teachers, reciters and Alarammas to acquire certificates.

” Other self-sustaining skills, including entrepreneurial training are included to help them live a more decent life.

“Efforts have been put in place more than ever before on the integration of Qur’anic schools into the formal education system because only effective integration of both types of education will produce the required human capital development.

“That will reduce to the barest minimum the problem of unemployment and youth’s restiveness such as what we witnessed a few weeks ago in some parts of the country,” he said.
