"We will take a hard look at the Almajiri system for better human capacity building and development. The rich intellectual endowment of the young Almajiris must be developed and harnessed for overall wellbeing of the society.
As a first necessary step, i have directed the COVID-19 taskforce to profile all the Tsangaya schools in the state with a view to creating a database. I will encourage a dialogue amongst my colleague Governors to create educational opportunities that are sustainable and modern for the Almajiris in the north. We take all measures to protect their human rights and dignity while we take steps to reposition them in the society."
