COVID-19 positive Almajiri kids need care not publicity, Ganduje tells Northern Governors


Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has called on his counterparts in the north to avoid ‘making noise’ about COVID-19 positive Almajiri kids and rather give them necessary care.

The governor disclosed that the decision to return Almajiri children to their respective states of origin is a collective one agreed upon by all northern governors as a measure of tackling COVID-19 but his colleagues have been playing politics with the situation.

The governor who was speaking at a media briefing on Sunday said the fact that he is not making noise doesn’t mean all Almajiri brought back to Kano from other northern states are healthy.

“We agreed at the Northern Governors Forum that all Almajiris moved to their states of origin. That is why we are sending, in good faith and procedures, all Almajiris that are not from Kano state to their respective states of origin.
