Lawyer advocates integration of Islamiyya schools into formal education system


Zaria (Kaduna State)- A Zaria-based legal practitioner, Mr Adamu Muhammad-Alangade, on Sunday advocated the integration of Islamiyya schools into the mainstream of Nigeria’s education system.

Muhammad-Alangade, who is also the Chairman, Management Committee of Madarasatil Tarbiyatil Islam, Ja’afaru Street, Sabongari Zaria, made the call at the 13th graduation ceremony of the school held in Zaria.

He said, “there is need for government to see reason in incorporating Islamiyya schools to be part of formal education in the country.

“If government takes full responsibility for curriculum development and welfare of the teachers this will enable it to easily and fully supervise and monitor the activities of the Islamiyyah schools in the country.”

According to him the move will go a long way in curtailing the lingering insecurity in the country apart from giving both students and their teachers a sense of belonging.

“This action will certainly assist in checking the activities of those using Islamiyyah schools as breeding grounds for extremists and also serve as a solution to the insurgency bedevilling the country.

“This school which was established 25 years ago with 26 students now has no fewer than 678 students but is still operating in a temporary site,” he said.

He therefore called on wealthy individuals to extend a helping hand to the school to enable it to actualise its dream of relocating to its permanent site.

Muhammad-Alangade urged the school leavers to use the knowledge acquired to widen their quest for Islamic education.

Earlier, the Chairman, Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’a Wa’iqamatis Sunnah (JIBWIS), Sabongari Local Government, Alhaji AbdulHamid Muhammad, expressed appreciation for the display of total dedication and commitment by the management and teachers of the school.

“I urge you to put-in more efforts and remember that only Allah can adequately reward your efforts.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the ceremony ended with a drama and presentation of certificates to 66 graduates and some distinguished personalities for their contributions to the development of the school. (NAN)
