COVID-19: 193 Almajiris test positive in Kano State as repatriation continues
The Kano State Government has announced that 193 Almajiris have tested positive for Coronavirus, further fueling the discussion surrounding the ongoing restitution exercise.
Furthermore, the State Commissioner for Education, Sunusi Muhammad Kiru, while briefing the media on Thursday
said so far a total of 1500 Almajiris have left Kano to their states of origins while the state received 400.
He said the state has banned the traditional Qur’anic Schools and anybody who wants to operate it must have a Dormitory for his Almajiris.
“A situation where an Alrama would come in with one thousand Almajiris
without knowing where to even put them that system won’t work we will not tolerate such”, the Commissioner highlighted.
He said the Government is recruiting 60 Alramas to the state civil service, this he said is to give them a sense of concern.
The State Coordinator of COVID-19 Taskforce response team Dr. Tijjani Hussain said out of about 2000 samples
they collected under the house to house testing done in Nassarawa local government, only one person tested positive.
This has contradicted the NCDC assertion that Nassarawa local government is amongst the local governments with a concentration of positives cases.
Dr. Tijjani Hussain worries that still there are some peoples in the State who do not believe
that the diseases does not exist and refused to wear face masks.
