House of Reps urge FG to stop repatriation of almajiri children

The repatriation of almajiri children to their states of origin due to the coronavirus outbreak, has been witnessed in different states in the last few days.

The lawmakers reached the resolution earlier today following a motion sponsored by a member of the House, Aishatu Dukku.

Dukku who expressed concern over the way the kids are being transported to their state of origin, stated that it is against the fundamental human right which allows Nigerians to reside in any part of the country they like.

She stated that the process is dehumanising and stressful as the children are packed in a vehicle in the scorching sun.

The House also resolved to urge the Northern governors to ensure that the Almajiris were captured in the Universal Basic and Technical Education System.
