Abubakar Aliyu also said that the sensitization has come necessarily because at its inception; Islamic form of child upbringing is built on the provisions of the glorious Qu’ran and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The JNI scribe further said that the Islamic Tarbiyyah stands out from other forms of upbringing because it is all encompassing consisting of training of the heart, purification of the soul, development of the senses and building of the body.

The Islamic cleric added that child upbringing in Islam entails ensuring attainment of good conduct, better disposition and best standing among mankind.

While speaking at the occasion, the Mai Kaltugo, Engineer Saleh Mohammed Umar and Bala Waja, Mohammed Danjuma Mohammed assured their support for the programme in order to end violence against children in the state and country at large.
