The Kano state government has formally abolished the traditional Almajiri system of education in the state.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, who made this known at a COVID-19 media briefing, confirmed that over 1000 almajirai have so far been received from various states of the northern region.

He said the state has completed arrangements to enroll all repatriated almajirai to Kano from other states into conventional educational system.

Standard News learned that the state government had evacuated about 1,172 almajirai to their states of origin.

Speaking further, Ganduje said 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.
