Education: A Route Out of Poverty, Says Fatai Kolawole

The recently turbaned Baba Adini of Osun State, Alhaji Fatai Kolawole has described education as an important route out of poverty.

He called for concerted efforts among Islamic organisations with a view to creating an increasingly educated Ummah.

Alhaji Kolawole stated these in Modakeke, in his address delivered during his turbaning as the Baba Adini of Osun State by the League of Imam and Alfa in the State.

He said education enhances wellbeing, and gives people a significant sense of self-worth, a respectable voice and social relevance.

He acknowledged the contributions of some islamic organisation to development of education in their respective ways.

“In this regard, let me commend Islamic groups like the Ansar-u-deen Society of Nigeria and more recently the world-famous Nasrul-Lahi-II-Faith Society of Nigeria (NASFAT) for the wonderful job they have done and are still doing in the impactful education of the Ummah. In our different ways, let us all join these noble efforts in creating an increasingly educated Ummah.”

On the state of the nation, Alhaji Kolawole noted that everybody has a role to play to bring back the fortune of the country.

He said, “Nigeria is now going through difficult times, as it’s happening currently in very many parts of the world, it is important to remember that we all have a role to play in bringing about relief. Let us remember that all the love of our country, our states, and our different communities or origin is part of worship in Islam.

“Let us therefore at all times make effort to make them habitations of peace, comfort, and prosperity. Let us show concern for the poor and vulnerable and let us join hands with others who are working to bring about relief.

He appeal to adherents of the different religions in Nigeria as a multi-relious nation, to co-exist in peace and harmony.

On his turbaning, the new Baba Adini of Osun State thanked the League of Imams and Alfas for finding him worthy of being conferred with the elevated position.
