National Commission for Almajiri Education and Out-of-School Children, Passes Second Reading

The House of Representatives has passed for second reading a bill seeking to establish the National Commission for Almajiri Education and Out-of-School Children.

A member of the House from Sokoto State, Shehu Kakale, and 18 others who sponsored the bill, seeks the Commission to Provide for a Multimodal System of Education to Combat the Menace of Illiteracy, Develop Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Programs, Prevent Youth Poverty, Delinquency, and Destitution in Nigeria; and for Other Purposes.”

The sponsor of the bill, Kale emphasised on the need for the bill, stating that out-of-school children in Nigeria are vulnerable to exploitation and recruitment by insurgents, human traffickers, and other criminal elements of society, hence the need for members of the House to do something to save the millions of out-of-school children, with a special focus on the fate of almajiri children in Nigeria.
