The Comptroller General ?of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede has warned that the Northern part of Nigeria would be doomed if the almajiri culture of education is not abolished.
Babandede stated this after receiving an award organised by the ‘Youth Coalition for Development ( YCD) held at Three Star Hotel in Dutse, the state capital.
He, in spite of that, blamed some religious leaders for encouraging street begging through the almajiri system while none of their wards can venture that.
“I have often asked those clerics that frown at those of us criticizing the almajirai ?system to show me their children who were in the same trend but the answer is always none”, he insisted.
“The north is on the brink of destroying itself if this ‘culture is not stopped,” Babandede warned.
He said almajirai students are known for ageless learning periods without graduating the students which is the more reason that they become vulnerable for easy recruitment into negative vices such as insurgency, banditry and homosexuality.
He, therefore, tasked the northern governors to work towards the abolishment of the almajirai culture, otherwise the region would not know peace.
