Nigeria: Muslim Students Urged to Be Committed to Studies

Jos — Muslim students have been urged to exhibit a sense of commitment to their quest for quality education in Nigeria.

The call was made yesterday by Dr. Yusuf Abdullahi Yusuf, a lecturer of the University of Jos during the annual orientation lectures to welcome the new and returning students, organized by the university chapter of the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN).

Yusuf also tasked the incoming students to accord respect to their lecturers and urged them to always attend lectures regularly and promptly instead of wasting so much time on the facebook and other social media.

Also speaking, the director of Al- Hikmah Schools, Abdurafiu Imam Bello, called on the students to be good ambassadors of Islam by reflecting good characters that will uphold the values of Islam within and outside the campuses.
