Kaduna, North – West, Nigeria
Deportation Of Almajiris to various states of origin will do more harm than good Sen. Shehu Sani expressed.
Such action, the Senator, Kaduna State North-central Nigeria, warned would have dire consequences.
This he expressed while reacting in a post on his Twitter page.
According to him, the Almajiris without education will return as bandits and insurgents. Thus, posing a threat to the security of the nation in future.
The Senator wrote: “When you arrest the dirty and beggarly Almajiri from your Beautiful Cities and ‘deport’ him to his village, away from your tourists, your visitors, your leisure and your sights, you are only hiding your dirty undies instead of cleaning them.
It will be recalled that Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, as part of measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus in Kano State on
Tuesday approved the deportation of Almajiris to their respective states of origin.
This move however has been met with criticisms from all quarters as some believe this will increase the spread of Coronavirus in communities.
