Gov’t is in tune with impactful role education plays in the life of the citizens and the nation – Bawumia

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said that the government is in tune with the impactful role that education plays in the life of our citizens and the nation.

This he said, underpins the resolve and commitment of government to ensure that the barriers to education are not only eradicated but that the full complements of the education of our young ones are well catered for.

Dr. Bawumia said these while eulogising the 103-year-old Sheikh Sharubutu on Friday August 5, when he commissioned the Sheikh Sharubutu Mosque  – a magnificent edifice built by the National Chief Imam, as well as an Islamic School beside it, in Joma Ablekuma.

He said “The Chief Imam does his good works from his undoubted commitment to society’s overall betterment. Sheik Sharubutu has always promoted and energetically worked for the balanced and spiritual uplifting of our people. His laudable works and necessary social interventions are never for personal gain or for fame.”

“I have absolutely no doubt that our Almighty Creator will reward him amply and deservedly for his extraordinary good works, such as the establishment of this beautiful Mosque and school  for our Joma-Ablekuma communities.”

Government, Dr. Bawumia noted, recognises the immense role Sheikh Sharubutu has been playing in education in particular, and added that in him, the government has a friend, and vice versa.

“National development has always been built on the back of education, as it equips young people to defy their socioeconomic challenges and circumstances to contribute to the establishment of a better nation.
