The combination of strong ethical grounding and practical expertise creates individuals who are not only capable but also committed to the betterment of society.”

Dr. Shittu called upon parents, educators, and community leaders to unite in these efforts. “As we celebrate Eid-il-Kabir, let us remember our collective responsibility to guide our children and support our youth. Together, we can build a future that honours our values and harnesses the potential of every young person in our community.”
