Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement in Nigeria, donated his personal house on Saturday to serve as the Majidadi Quranic Institute of Research and Advancement in commemoration of his 67th birthday.

The Islamic centre is meant to provide access for almajiris who will memorise the Holy Quran to be trained and certified with primary, secondary, and diploma certificates.

He said, “They will undergo rigorous training in both English and Arabic studies, with which they will use the certificates to join academia and make the sky their limit in pursuit of knowledge.”

Mr Kwankwaso explained that the institute was his idea to make sure that the streets were not only relieved of beggars but also that those seen to be begging were provided with life opportunities.

Mr Kwankwaso explained that the institute, which is carved out of his Miller Road residence, henceforth belonged to humanity in general.

“This centre is to get people who have memorised the Glorious Quran registered, select those who meet the requirements, and examine them.

“It has a curriculum in which men and women will be trained within the shortest possible time to get them primary and secondary certificates.

“They will be given diplomas in Islamic education. With this, they can go to universities, and the sky will be the limit for them.

“They will be given the opportunity to be certified and accommodated in the system,” he said.

Earlier, Governor Abba Yusuf thanked his mentor for the initiative, which, he said, would provide a ground for further development in the education sector in the state.

He said that the state government would rehabilitate 44 Tsangiya Islamic schools across the local government areas.

He said that the state government would ensure the provision of the required basic learning materials that would ensure a smooth learning environment.

Mr Yusuf lauded Mr Kwankwaso for providing the requisite leadership that paved the way for the development of the state.

“We will continue to tap into your style of leadership to ensure good democratic governance,” he said.
