Repatriating Almajiris’ll be counter-productive, says Shehu Sani

A former senator from Kaduna State, Sen. Shehu Sani, has condemned the deportation of almajiris to their states of origin as being done by some states in the North.

The deportation of Almajiris back to their states of origin, according to where that had happened, was a step to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the states.

Sen. Sani, on Thursday, said the move by the governors would not solve the Almajiri problems in Nigeria.

Instead, he suggested that rehabilitation and education of the Almajiris was the only way to solve the problem.

According to him, the deportation move by the governors is a way of hiding ‘bucket of faeces’.

In a tweet from his verified tweeter handle, Sen. Sani wrote, “Arresting the Almajiris and dumping them in their villages or ‘trucking’ them to their ‘states of Origins’ or shoving them to the Isolation centers will not solve the Almajiri problem.

“The Governors are simply deodorizing and hiding a bucket of feaces. Rehabilitate and re-educate them.”
