Live an exemplary life to inspire the younger generation – Prof. Olagoke

As Muslims all over the country celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Fitri, the spiritual head, Shafaudeen in Islam worldwide, Professor Sabit Ariyo Olagoke has urged parents to ensure proper upbringing of their wards as a way to address the current insecurity challenges in the country. 

Professor Olagoke in a Sallah message to felicitate Muslims on the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan fast also admonished the adherents of Islam to imbibe and put into practice all the lessons learnt during the period in their daily affairs.

He said, parents are expected to work together on the physiological needs of their children for even growth and development.

He said this becomes imperative for the adolescent to have sound home training so that he/she would not be bought over by bad and poor influence of the environment.

The Islamic scholar said this would ensure that the home has peace and assured development for posterity, adding that the school must complement parent’s efforts in child rearing.

Professor Olagoke noted that Nigeria today is experiencing institutional indiscipline with the consequence of resulting insecurity; violence and destruction amidst general breakdown of all agents of socialization hence, the need for restoration of our core values by the traditional leaders, religious leaders and educational institutions.

He said government must promote justice, equity and pursue policies that anchor on respect for the fundamental human rights of the people.

Professor Olagoke also charged parents to promote the fear of God in all they do and live an exemplary lifestyle that would serve as a blueprint for the younger generation to follow.
