Politicians in the country have been told to support the spiritual aspect of education in order to help the masses have knowledge about God and to help them do the right thing in society.
The charge was made by Founder and Spiritual Head of Shafaudeen in Islam Worldwide, Engr.(prof.) Sabit Ariyo Olagoke during the 22nd Walimot celebration at Shafaudeen Head Quarters, Wakajaye Ibadan.
According to him, “in a gathering where there is spiritual education, the people will have knowledge of God and there will also be orderliness and fear of God in the people.
“Youth of today are the product of circumstance ” in those days where mosque, churches and universities exist, there was the fear of God in the way children are thought and brought up, but the reverse is the case nowadays especially between teachers, leaders and guardians.”
The spiritual head said for the youths to be fruitful and successful there must be good spiritual education and parenting adding that, that is where the morals of a child start.
Professor Olagoke also urged parents and guardians to give their children and wards quality education to make them good and great leaders of tomorrow.
In a short conversation with one of the graduates, Adesope Toheeb Bioluwatife who shows his gratitude to God his parent and the founder of Shafaudeen Arabic school giving him the privilege to be one of those graduating, he also advises the upcoming youth who also wish to graduate to face their studies.
