During a Television programme yesterday, the Governor of Kaduna state Nasir El-Rufai has said that the 19 Northern governors in the country have collectively decided to put an end to the Almajiri system in the country and are ready to challenge any opposition that arise and stand on their path in materializing this aim.



The Governor made this known yesterday in a popular TV show ‘Politics Today’, he said the almajiri culture system is archaic and has led to any positive result both for the Northern region and Nigeria as a whole.

According to him, though the northern governors have been looking for a way to end the menace, the COVID-19 pandemic has given them the golden opportunity to make it a reality as the system has become a scourge which is capable of mortgaging the future of youths and creating problems for modern generation.

“What the Northern governors Forum has determined is to end this (Almajiri) system once and for all because it has not worked for our part of the country and it has been a source of problem for the rest of the country and we are determined to end it once and for all”.

“We have discussed this and we are ready to face anyone on this subject. There is nowhere in the world where children go through this kind of system which does not give life skills, does not prepare them for modern education and creating future problems for generations”.

We are ready to face any­one that wants to confront us on this matter. All the 19 northern governors, we took a decision collectively and we are going to implement it to the letter.

“We are ready for any back­lash but we will not mortgage the future of our children and put our region at risk as well as Nigeria at risk with the con­tinuation of this system. It is archaic, it is out-of-date. It has not led to any positive result for our region and for our country and so, we must end it.

It will be recalled that the dethroned Emir of Kano who is a close ally of the governor has always campaigned for the abolition of the programme.
