Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Almajiri or scholars in the Islamic religion has become a matter of sad concern for the North and the Nigerian nation. These children of school age and above roam about the streets in tattered clothes begging scavenging and doing all sort of odd jobs. This paper examined the Almajiri Syndrome in Nigeria, its background, nature, scope, problems and suggesting possible recommendations has to how it can move out of its present precarious situation and probably how it can contribute to meaningful developments in our nation. It was concluded that the government should enforce the 2003 Child Right Act, it was also recommended that, if the almajiri schools are properly funded most of the problems and the quantum of violence being perpetuated all over the country today will be a thing of the past.
