The chairman of Ansar-ud-deen College of Education, Lagos, Governing Council, Chief Tunde Fanimokun has urged Christian students to seek admission into the school, saying ADCOED is not meant for Muslim students alone.
He made the call at the 10th year anniversary of the school held at the banquet hall of National Arts Theatre, Iganmu.
Chief Fanimokun who observed that the percentage of Christian students currently enrolled in the school was not impressive, attributed it to the erroneous impression that the school was established for Muslims alone.
Faulting the insinuation, Chief Fanimokun stated that the college was not created mainly for Muslims but for everyone who wants the best for his or her child without any religious discrimination.
The highpoint of the event was the launching of Seven hundred and fifty million education endowment fund.
In his remark, the Chairman of the occasion, the national president of Ansar-ud-deen society of Nigeria, Alhaji Lateef Olufemi Okunnu, stated that Ansar-ud-deen Institute of Arabic and Islamic studies was established in 1982 and got affiliated to university of Ibadan in 1989.
He said the school was upgraded to college of education, which is now known as Ansar-ud-deen College of Education, urging the gathering to donate generously to the project.
While delivering his speech, the provost of the college, Prof T.G.O Gbadamosi emphasized the need for Muslim faithful to embrace the college, adding that the school got 100 percent accreditation as far back as year 2006.
Most prominent among the school alumni include the governor of CBN, Mr. Godwin Emefiele and Dr. MikeAdenuga (jnr) (GCON) who both attended Ansar-du-deen primary school, Igbosere, Lagos, and Ansar-ud-deen Grammar school, Randle Avenue, Surulere, Lagos
