After Abandoning Jonathan’s programme,  FG votes N793m for Almajiri education in Kano, Oyo, seven other states

The federal government has voted N793 million to restart the Integrated Almajiri, Qur’anic and non-formal schools into formal education in ten states.

The new pilot project is expected to take no fewer than 10 million out-of-school children who are mostly Almajiris off the streets to acquire education and skills.

The government said that the existing Almajiri/Tsangaya schools lack vocational skills. The pilot test will take off in nine states, eight of them in the north and only Oyo State in the south.
The other states are Kano, Katsina, Sokoto, Niger, Adamawa, Bauchi, Yobe and Jigawa.

The new project will be implemented by the Federal Ministry of Education through the Universal Basic Education Commission in collaboration with states Ministries of Education, State Universal Basic Education Boards (SUBEBs) and the National Board for Arabic and Islamic Studies.
