Nasarawa Repatriates 788 Almajiris To Home States


No fewer than 788 almajiris from Nasarawa State have been repatriated to their various home states.

The Nasarawa State Governor, Mr Andullahi Sule, said this while addressing the first batch of the almajiris from the southern zone of the state on Sunday.

Biding farewell to the almajiri in Government Science Schools, Lafia, the governor said the essence was for their parents to take proper care of them.

He said, “The plan to repatriate the almajiris is of good intention and not in bad motive.”

According to him, the agreement was reached when the northern governors met recently in Abuja, adding that “COVID-19 is fast racking the movement”.

Those states included are Jigawa, Plateau, Kaduna, Gombe, and Taraba states.
