OSUN State Muslim Community (OSMC) has called on the state government to recruit more Arabic and Islamic teachers into all public schools across the state.

The Muslim community noted that the current numbers of Islamic and Arabic teachers in the schools falls well below required numbers.

President of the OSMC, Alhaji Mustafa Olawuyi, made the call during the Islamic new year Hijrah 1445 celebration in Osogbo, the state capital, last Saturday.

He said: "We call on Osun State Government to urgently recruit Arabic and Islamic teachers into our public schools. The current numbers of teachers in the schools are not enough. It falls below what we expected to have or required."

The OSMC president also urged the State and Federal government to revive all dormant industries in the state, such as the Steel Rolling Mills, Machine Tools Industry, Osogbo and Cocoa Industry in Ede.

Olawuyi said reviving the industries will provide employment opportunities for youths and boost the economy of the state.

He appealed to the state government to address the concerns of the residents on the health hazards arising from emissions from the iron and steel recycling factories in Ikirun and Ile-Ife.

The Muslim leader said the Industries have caused unnecessary deaths and infections of hepatitis diseases among the workers and residents.
