Students Of Almajiri Schools Built By Jonathan Return To Street To Beg For Alms, Food

Many pupils in the Almajiri integrated model Schools built during the tenure of former President Goodluck Jonathan have returned to the streets to seek for alms and food as a means of survival, Dailytrust exclusively report.


Former President Goodluck Jonathan launched the programme on April 10, 2012 at Gagi in Sokoto State, where he registered 25 pupils in the new model boarding school, to tackle the high rate of illiteracy rate in the northern region.

It was the first of 400 such schools to be built in the northern states for which the government had planned to spend about N15 billion.

Jonathan said the first model school would have facilities such as language laboratory, recitation hall, classrooms, dormitories, clinic, vocational workshop, dining hall and quarters for teachers. 

However, five years after, DailyTrust reported that some of the schools have been converted to conventional schools while others are replete with decaying facilities.

In Kebbi, many pupils in the Almajiri schools in Kebbi State roam the streets to seek for alms and food as a means of survival. 

In Kano, investigations revealed that though no school fees is being charged; pupils in the school sleep on mattresses and mats bought by their parents
