Street begging by Almajiri has been banned by the Kano State government.
This is as the Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje-led government tries to sanitise its education system.
The ban was contained in a statement sent to journalists by the governor’s spokesperson, Abba Anwar.
According to Anwar, the move was to fully consolidate the free and compulsory primary and secondary schools education in the state.
Governor Ganduje says defaulters of the new ban will face the full wrath of the law, adding that henceforth, Almajiri teachers must accept the new approach put in place by the state government.
“If almajiri teacher thinks he cannot accept the new policy he has to leave the state,” the statement noted.
“When Almajiri are caught begging, it is not only that beggar is caught, but his parents or guardians. Such parents or guardians would be taken to court to face the wrath of the law,” Governor Ganduje stated.
