Kwara Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has appointed a seven-member Arabic education board, which includes leading Islamic scholars, academics, and community leaders.
This was said in a statement released by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, on Sunday in Ilorin.
According to a statement released by the governor’s office on Sunday, the board chairman is Mashood Mahmud-Jimba, a famous professor of Arabic Literature at Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete.
“Mahmud-Jimba holds a doctoral degree in Arabic Education and is a respected voice in the Islamic community.
“Other members of the statutory board are Ahmad Abubakar Agbaje who represents the proprietors of Arabic schools in the state; Rabiat Hussein and Abdullahi Muhammad Namallam who represent the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT).
“The remaining board members are Hafsat Titi Oloriegbe-Alao; Mumini Adebimpe (SAN) who represents the Ministry of Justice and Abbas Nurein Sunkanmi, as secretary,” the statement read.
The appointment of the board comes barely two weeks after the government’s committee on the Ganmo Arabic School’s corporal punishment submitted its report.
The report had, among other things, called for the immediate constitution of the Arabic board to attend to all issues concerning Arabic education in the state.
The statement added that Governor Abdulrazaq has appointed Abubakar Sadiq Seko as his Senior Special Assistant on Poverty Alleviation.
