Kano bans street begging, erring parents to face legal action


In an effort to fully actualise the free and compulsory primary and secondary school education, and the integration of the Almajiri system to the policy, Kano State government has banned street begging in the state.
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje announced this during the launching of Basic Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) and Distribution of Offer of Appointment to 7,500 volunteer teachers, held on Tuesday in Kano.
Ganduje, who lamented the ugly situation of the social misnomer, said that: “This policy of free and compulsory basic and secondary education goes along with it integration of our Almajiri system into the mainstream policy implementation.
“Which suggests that English and Arithmetic must be included in the Almajiri schools curriculum.”
According to him, this would go a long way in giving those kids other type of education, adding that while they will continue acquiring their study of the Holy Qur’an, they would at the same time learn English and Arithmetic.
He further explained that such will give them an opportunity to continue with their studies to secondary schools and beyond.
Ganduje said that a total of 7,500 newly recruited teacher volunteers under the BESDA programme have been employed and given their letters of appointment.
