Jos – The Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN), an NGO, on Sunday advised parents to monitor movements of their children as Christians joined the rest of the world to celebrate Christmas.
Mrs Mairo Sani, the leader of the organisation in Plateau, gave the advise in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos.
Sani said parents should monitor the movement of their children to stop them from engaging in negative activities.
She also cautioned parents not to engage in unnecessary spending as schools re-open January.
Sani said such practices had made it difficult for most parents to pay children’s school fees as at when due.
She also said that such practices had caused serious setback to most children’s academic performances.
She urged Christians to use the period to show love, give alms and charity to the needy.
“I prayed for peace and unity of this country, irrespective of our religious affiliations.
“This is because prayer is the key for peaceful co-existence and rapid development of the country.’’
