A representative of the Ghana Muslim Mission, Mrs Habiba Abubakar, has advised women to continue to play an important role in the upbringing of children.

She said women were good managers of the home and thus needed to use their skills to help minimise indiscipline in the society, especially among the youth.

She gave the advice when she addressed the 35th National Convention of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association of Ghana (Lajina Imaillah) held at the Sunyani Senior High School in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The three-day convention, held on the theme, “Moral Excellence: Indisputable Requirement of An Ideal Women”, aimed at creating opportunities for the association to renew its commitment to God, share ideas and create a platform for networking.
