Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has directed the Almajiri schools’ operators to vacate the state.
He made the order while speaking at the Kaduna State Child Protection and Welfare Committee’s inauguration ceremony on Tuesday.
El-Rufai further asserts that he’s very confident that his administration has shown fair and disciplined actions.
”My message to all those that have Almajiris in Kaduna state, you have a choice to relocate; otherwise, sooner or later, we will get you.”
He said the government had developed and approved a social protection policy to support the most vulnerable.
“Politicians often get involved with their ‘slot mentality,’ and when we give them those slots, they don’t give them to the poorest.”
El-Rufai said the social investment office has been working across the 24 local government areas to have a comprehensive social register of the poorest.
The governor added that more than one million households in Kaduna had been registered.
