Activist kicks against almajirai’s influx to South


Chief Adesunbo Onitiri, political activist and social critic, has queried the rationale behind some northerners exporting their almajirai to the southern states, despite the Federal Government’s ban on interstate travel to check the spread of coronavirus in the country.

According to a statement made available to journalists in Lagos, he expressed worry over the current incident.

He advised that as Nigerians, what the Federal Government should do is to gather all the almajirai in the north and rehabilitate them by providing them with vocational education.

“By this arrangement, give them soft loans to start business. They will be useful to themselves and their society,” he said.

The social critic described the danger of the coronavirus lockdown as another disaster bedevilling the nation with the attendant economic lockdown.

“We implore the southern states to lift the ban on the economic lockdown in the south.

“We can only enforce physical distancing and wearing of face masks. Nobody in the south hates the northerners.

“We demand a total overhaul of the security architectural structure of Nigeria. The present structure has failed woefully to stem insecurity in Nigeria,” the statement said.
