Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state state has said that majority of the Almajiri children roaming the streets of Kano are foreigners.
The governor said that the Kano state government has introduced compulsory free education – policy that will bring an end to the excessive Almajiri system.
“We all believe that education is one of the major routes to economic prosperity and a corridor to scientific and technological advancement. It is at the same time, as largely regarded and enunciated, a veritable tool to combat unemployment,” Ganduje said.
“Part of our stakeholders for this noble policy are experts who specialise in basic education, some in science and technical education, some in assessment and quality control in education, some in examination management and also some would come from Almajiri system of education,” he said.
The governor also urged the media “to come forward and be good partner for the overall development of the education sector in the state”.
