Katsina sends 435 Almajiri returnees to LGS
The Katsina State Government, on Wednesday, sent the 435 Almajiris sent to it by the Kano State Government to their 23 nearby government zones.
The Almajiris were obliged at the regular site of the National Youth administration Corps in Katsina on Tuesday, where a group from the state Primary Health Care Development Agency had exposed them to a clinical registration.
The Executive Secretary of the office, Dr Shamsudeen Yahaya, who drove the group, said the Almajiris were examined medicinally on Tuesday night and their temperature was not above 37.2 degrees.
The Permanent Secretary, Cabinet and Security, Governor’s Office, Mallam Suleiman Safana, managed the exchange of the Almajiris to their particular neighbourhood government territories on Wednesday.
One of the Almajiris, Muzammilu Batsari, praised the state government for meeting the challenge at hand and seeing to their protected return.
He said in Hausa, “Everything we can say is that we say thanks to God that we are returning home without being attacked. We thank the state government for dealing with us and guaranteeing that we get back securely.”
The Secretary to the Katsina State Government, Alhaji Mustapha Inuwa, got the Almajiris in the interest of the legislature at Gidan Mutumdaya, the boundary town between the two states.
He expressed gratitude toward the Kano State Government for making profiling and isolating them before giving them over.
Inuwa exhorted guardians and watchmen to halt from sending their youngsters and wards to obscure spots, in this way presenting them to social perils under the appearance of looking for strict information.
He underscored that it was the obligation of each parent to guarantee legitimate childhood of their youngsters, which was inadequate in the Almajiri framework.
The SSG clarified that the Katsina State Government had just shut down both the Islamiyya and the Local Quranic schools and restored all the Almajiris to their folks, including those from the Niger Republic.
He repeated the status of the state government to work intimately with neighbours to battle COVID-19 and other social indecencies upsetting the North-West Zone.
Inuwa communicated joy that the Katsina and Kano state governments were presently taking similar measures towards shortening the spread of the threat in the two states.
Prior, the Kano State Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Muhammad Kiru, who drove the state group to the handover, said Governor Abdullahi Ganduje was especially content with the speedy reaction of the Katsina State Government, which in under 24-hour notice, made courses of action to get its indigenes.
An announcement by the Director of Press in the SSG office, Mallam Abdullahi Yaradua, stated, “They will be moved to their particular neighborhood government regions and gave over to their folks and watchmen.”
