Effect Of Almajiri Child Education In Northern Nigeria



Spread the love

By Rakiyatu Muhammad Yusuf

The almajiri child education has become one of the basic phenomenon in Northern Nigeria, whereas parents send their children to Islamic boarding school which is almajiranci without knowing the menace they will face and not knowing how the children survive in their daily activities.

This issue of Almajiri child education is something we should talk about by looking at the happenings in the society we live in why because some of the parents just send the children to school without any parental of up bringing and these bring about problems of Northern Nigeria because the children has right to do what the want in the society without anyone stopping them from running their activities.

Am not against Almajiri child education but looking at the current situation in the Northern Nigeria and the way life had changed so many children have lost the life’s and lots of them have engaged themselves in vicious activities that lead to destruction of Country Nigeria.

What baffles me the most is that you’ll see them running the street begging for food to eat and by looking at this aspect one may decide to give them a work be it illegal as along as they can get what to eat the can endeavour to do the work, and this can lead them to doing anything they feel is good for them in the society.

The first agent of socialisation is family, family is the first vary stage where children comes to understand Good or Bad, Right or Wrong in the society but reverse is the case why because the parents send the children to Almajiri child education at their earliest age by not considering the circumstances the children may face and this give the children a chance of been influence by their peer group because they lack parental of up bringing at their first stage of life.

Also looking at this menace of Almajiri child education, the children have no one to feed or shelter for them they only depend on what the street can offer for them to survive so this will lead them to doing anything illegal in the society for them to survive and bring about destruction in our country.

I so much love and revere those children and I want them to be come role models in our society but their parents failed in training them to be role models in the society because they abandoned them and they don’t care about the activities the children engage themselves in be it Good or Bad.

I always caution our parents to shun vices in dealing with their children because they’re the leaders of tomorrow and we have hope in them and believed that they are going to make this country great by the grace of the omnipresence and we can only achieve that by given the children proper parental of up bringing right from the first agent of socialisation which is family.

Lastly, am not saying Almajiri child education is bad but looking at the way it been handled in the Northern Nigeria one may go against it because it’s one of the greatest phenomenon in Northern Nigeria today.
