    It is unfortunate that Arabic language has been reduced to the background among other languages in the school curriculum. What happened in the on-going BECE examination is an indication.
    Because, I don’t know what will be an excuse that will be provided for setting an examination of such level without typesetting.
    Is this not aimed at letting the students to loose interest in the subject
    But whatever the challenges the Almighty will surely protect His religion
