The emir of Gwandu in Kebbi State and the chairman of Kebbi State Council of Chiefs, Alhaji Muhammadu Iliyasu Bashar has urged parents to pay more attention to the education of their children.
The emir made the call after the completion of two rakaat prayers at the Eid Praying Ground in Birnin Kebbi yesterday.
He said that any society that does not give its young ones the required education it deserves would remain backward forever.
The royal father also warned parents against lavishing their children with worldly things that would be inimical to the pursuits of their education.
“Education is the best asset you can give to your children. You as parents must also seek for education because any society without sound education is a backward society,” he said.
Bashar enjoined people of the state to be peaceful, loyal to constituted authorities and shun idleness through agriculture.
In his short remarks at Government House in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State governor, Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu rejoiced with the people of the state on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
While thanking God for the peace, security and development the state is witnessing, he called on people to rally round President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and sustain their support.
According to him Kebbi people will give the president massive votes in the 2019 general elections.
“I urge people of the state to give President Buhari massive votes in 2019.
Buhari does not need to come to Kebbi on campaign, Kebbi is for Buhari,” he said.
