Out of over 300 Almajiris deported to Bauchi State from Kano, 43 has tested positive for Covid 19. Before the end of today, the figure may exceed 100 as the results comes in batches!
In response, Bauchi State Govt are also planning to deport Almajiri indigenes of Kano back to their State. Yobe State Government has already rounded up their Almajiri beggars, ready to deport them back to their various States in the North.
Between 2012 to 2014, Former President Jonathan initiated a process through a compulsory basic education aimed at eradicating Almajiri System in the North. As usual, billions of naira was appropriated through the Federal Ministry of Education. But what happened?
Coalition of Northern Oligarchy unanimously frustrated the process.
And today, the number of out of School children in the North has risen from 8.3 million in 2014 to 13.2 million in March 2020, according to UNICEF.
And the same Northern politicians will tell you that Igbos doesn’t love themselves and you’ll believe them?
Tell me where you’ll find this type absurdity in Igbo land?
With these number of Almajiris carrying Covid 19 Virus, Nigeria as a country is in serious mess!
Now, how do you trace their contacts?
Do they understand how deadly Covid 19 is?
Do they understand simple English language?
The truth is that most of these Almajiris don’t even know their parents and states of origin.
If these Almajiris were not quarantined and tested upon their arrival from Kano to Bauchi State, nobody would’ve known that these figures are living with Covid 19.
This is not the time for sentiments. Almajiri time bomb in Nigeria has finally exploded! It is no longer a joke.
Everybody must be careful this time; WASH YOUR HANDS ANYTIME YOU TOUCH ANYTHING INCLUDING NAIRA NOTES!
