Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has on Monday shown his support for a bill in the State Assembly on compulsory education for all school-age children in the State.
Ganduje said, “With the bill signed into law, parents who refused to enroll their children would be taken to court”
This was revealed in an interactive session with UNICEF Advocacy Group in collaboration, with State Universal Basic Education Board and High-Level Women Advocacy at Government House
To this effect, the Governor, also warned that parents, who decide to send their children into the streets, would not only be arrested but risk prosecution.
“Children begging on the streets, instead of going to school would be arrested, their parents would be arrested and charged to court for prosecution because begging is not our religion. Begging is not Islamic.”
