Buni, represented, Alhaji Idi Gubana, stated this in Damaturu at a three-day stakeholder engagement on Almajiri education.

He said the reform was part of efforts to revitalize education so that citizens are well-informed and mentally equipped to face growing development challenges.

The governor noted that, “at the height of the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, some states took unsavory measures that almost strangled Almajiri education in their areas.

“Yobe carefully adopted a measure that adapts to the COVID-19 prevention protocols, which culminated in the migration of many Almajiri to the state.

“The Almajiris joined a special program and accepted donated start-up materials for their income generation and self-sufficiency,” said Buni.

State Almajiri Education Steering Committee

The Governor commended the State Almajiri Education Steering Committee and UNICEF for co-hosting the meeting with the theme: “Almajiri Education and Contemporary Challenges.”

He urged the participants to bring their wealth of experience to the meeting aimed at providing a solution to the modern challenges facing Almajiri schools.
