Making this known when he visited some 200 Almajiri children repatriated from Nasarawa State and undergoing rehabilitation and optical screening at Government College, Kurmin Mashi, Kaduna, Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i stated that any Islamic cleric who enrols any child into the Almajiri system would also be prosecuted and jailed as well as fined N100,000 or N200,000 per child.
According to him, the Almajiri pupils repatriated from other states of the country were indigenes of the state adding that the government would give them all the opportunity they deserved to grow and develop.
We will, therefore, continue to take delivery of every Almajiri pupil indigenous to Kaduna state for rehabilitation, treatment and enrolment into formal school nearest to where their parents live.
We will continue to do this until we clear Kaduna state of the menace of Almajiri system, which is not education but the abuse of the privilege and future of a child.
Our ultimate goal is for them to acquire formal education without depriving them of the opportunity to acquire Quranic education.
They will continue their Quranic education but under the care of their parents and not under someone who does not know them or paid to look after them.
Those that cannot proceed to senior secondary school will have the opportunity to go to vocational school, also free.
As such, no parent has any excuse for his child not to go to school.
