Kano state government on Wednesday formally abolished the traditional Almajiri system of education in the state after completing arrangements to enroll all repatriated almajirai to Kano from other states into the conventional educational system.
Addressing newsmen on COVID-19 , Governor Abdullahi Ganduje confirmed that over 1000 almajirai have so far been received from various states of the northern region.
He stated on Wednesday that the repatriation of almajiri children to their states of origin has not stopped, adding that all almajirai who are not from Kano will be handed over to the right persons in charge.
Ganduje called on all residents to remain calm and continue to observe all safety precautions to prevent further spread of the pandemic which the government says is reducing drastically.
