Reps Approve Bill To Establish Almajiri Education Commission

The House of Representatives has approved a bill seeking to establish a ‘National Commission for Almajiri Education and Out-of-School Children’. 

The bill was sponsored by a lawmaker from Sokoto State, Shehu Kakale, and 18 others titled ‘A Bill for an Act to Establish National Commission for Almajiri Education and out of School Children to Provide for a Multimodal System of Education to tackle the Menace of Illiteracy, Develop Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Programmes, Prevent Poverty, Delinquency and Destitution in Nigeria; and for Related Matters.’ 

The bill passed its second reading, hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo warned that the over 20 million in Nigeria, which constitute almost 10 per cent of global statistics, are potential terrorists.
