Northern govs have resolved to end Almajirai — El-Rufai



The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said the almajirai system has stopped in the state, adding that over 30,000 of them had been repatriated to other states.

El-Rufai said his administration was also reviewing state laws to make sure the system remained dead, adding that parents / audience guidance of almajirai were being educated to carry up their responsibilities and send their children to school.

He spoke on Wednesday during an interview programme on Channels Television, Politics Today.

He said, “The Northern Governors Forum took a collective decision at a meeting recently we had about two weeks ago that we'll end the almajirai system completely, we'll abolish it. And a part of the steps we took was to return them to their states of origin.

We also decided that every government will take delivery of those almajirai and return them to their parents and make sure that they are going to school.

We have done that in Kaduna; we've repatriated over 30,000 almajirai from other states back to their states and that we are happy to receive any almajirai from any state of the federation that are indigenous to Kaduna.

We have been expanding our schools, building classrooms to accommodate these children.

It is better to cram 200 children in a classroom and provides them some quite modern education than to permit them to waste their lives away and go around begging.

Anything is best than this technique and that we are determined as northern governors to finish it.

El-Rufai said 169 almajirai in Kano, who were of Kaduna origin, were delivered to his state.

He noted that though 65 of them tested positive for the virus, he was happy they were repatriated.

If these children weren't delivered to us, they simply would have died in Kano. a number of them would survive the disease, but things in Kano is overwhelming and that i don’t think that anybody in Kano will want to look after them and test them,” he added.Northern govs have resolved to end Almajirai — El-Rufai
