Muslim teachers charged on diligence, obedience as MUTAN holds Ramadan Tafsir
Muslim teachers have been charged to discharge their duties with diligence and shun immoral acts.
This charge was made by the Chairman of the Muslim Teachers’ Association of Nigeria (MUTAN) Alhaji Raheem Jimoh in a Ramadan press statement ahead of the association’s Ramadan lecture which holds on Saturday, April 9 this year in Ikorodu.
‘I am appealing in the spirit of the month, that we should be punctual, diligent, responsible, reliable, neat, and respectful. I. e. be the best in every way in our schools, shun illegalities such as illegal collections, admissions, and avoid indecent and or questionable interactions with female students that can lead to suspicion of or actual committal of the heinous crime of sexual molestation’ Jimoh said.
He said Muslims are by inclination the best of mankind and Muslim teachers are role models.
The Ramadan lecture which has the theme Islam: Between Extremism and Laxity, will hold at the Government Model College, Owutu, Ikorodu, Lagos.
The lecturer is Barrister Shakrullah Muhammad Obale, Principal Partner, Shakirullah M. Obale & Co.
Speaking with DAB on the lecture, the outgoing Imam of MUTAN, Alhaji Tajudeen Oladoyin, said the theme was chosen to reflect the prevailing mood in the religion and the society in general.
He said there was need for the government to ensure equitable application of rules without fear or favour.
Established 25 years ago, MUTAN is an association of Muslim teachers and non teaching staff in public schools.
