The Comptroller General ‎of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammed Babandede has warned Northern governors to abolish the almajiri culture before it destroys the region.

Babandede issued this warning after receiving an award organised by the ‘Youth Coalition for Development (YCD) held at Three Star Hotel in Dutse, the state capital.

The Immigration boss blamed some religious leaders for encouraging street begging through the almajiri system while none of their ward are into the system.

He warned that the Northern part of Nigeria would be doomed if the almajiri culture of education is not abolished.

“I have often asked those clerics that frown at those of us criticizing the allajirai ‎system to show me their children who were in the same trend but the answer is always none”, he insisted.

“The north is on the brink of destroying itself if this ‘culture is not stopped,” Babandede warned.

Babandede said almajirai students are known for ageless learning periods without graduating the students which is the more reason that they become vulnerable for easy recruitment into negative vices such as insurgency, banditry and homosexuality.

He, therefore, tasked the northern governors to work towards the abolishment of the almajirai culture, otherwise the region would not know peace.

KanyiDaily recalls that Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai had warned parents against enrolling their children into the Almajiri education system in the state.

The governor threatened that any parent who enroll their children into the Almajirai system stand the risk of prosecution and up to two years jail.
