Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has called out Northern leaders saying their dealings with the Almajiri has been unfair.
The lawmaker advised the governors and other rich individuals in the region to help transform the Almajiri system of Islamic education, instead of abandoning them.
“The system had its origin from the migration of Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. When he migrated from Mecca, some people followed him in search of knowledge and they were catered for. They were not left hungry. They were fed.”
“Some of us have excess that others don’t need. Channel such towards enhancing the living standard of such children. They are our children,” he added.
