The sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar, has said that Almajiris are not outlaws or criminals as people think, adding that they are just victims of their conditions.

Abubakar made this known while he was speaking at an event marking the 50th anniversary of the Islamic Education Trust (IET), as he urged Islamic scholars in the northern region to come up with solutions on how to end the scourge, The Nation reports.

Represented by the emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, he said that the Almajiris lack parental care, adding that their parents will give an account of their failures as parents to God.

He added that in solving the situation, a thorough approach that would combine ways to overcome the gap between children and education needs to be considered.

The sultan also advocated for the need to have an indigenous curriculum that would allow the teaching of subjects in local languages just like other countries have been practicing.

Abubakar said that the region is very much blessed with human and natural resources to be wallowing in abject poverty, asking people to explore viable options to stop it.
