The Chairman of Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye LCDA, Hon Rasaq Ajala, has encouraged participants at his annual Ramadan lecture to embrace formal education.
Ajala offered the encouragement during the Ramadan lecture which was organised at his residence at 1, Imoru Street, Idioro, Mushin Lagos State, on Thursday April 23, 2021.
The chairman enjoined the participants to consider formal school as a necessary tool needed to uplift themselves.
In his words, “Even if one intends to go into businesses, formal education will distinguish one from those who have no such opportunity.”
The LCDA chairman therefore called on the women present at the programme to ensure that the education of their children is well taken care of.
The lecturer of the day, Chief Imam Abdulganiu Ibrahim, who represented The United Muslim Council, Mushin branch did justice to the topic for the day “Role of Learning & Education in Nation building”.
The Imam made several allusions to some quoted words of Prophet Muhammad.
Abdul-Ganiu stated that it is compulsory for “every Muslim to search and seek knowledge even if it is as far as China”.
He said, “Education — formal, informal or nonformal — is beneficial to humanity as this will make individuals self-reliant and prepare them for the challenges that may come their way in life.”
