The Ministry of Religious Affairs in Kebbi State has initiated a survey of Islamiyya and almajiri schools within the state.

It said the survey aims to gather data on the age and number of pupils, as well as information about their parents and their origins.

Architect Muhammed Sani Aliyu, the Commissioner for Religious Affairs, explained that this initiative is part of the government’s efforts to monitor and regulate the almajiri system in Kebbi State. He acknowledged potential resistance from those exploiting children for personal gain but emphasized the government’s commitment to addressing this issue.
