Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s spokesman, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the decision of the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, to jail any parent who enrols their children in the Almajiri system.
El-rufai further stated that if any Islamic cleric is caught enrolling any child into the almajiri system, such clerics would be prosecuted and jailed as well as fined N100,000 or N200,000 per child.
This, he said when he visited some almajiri children repatriated from Nasarawa state, and undergoing rehabilitation and optical screening at Government College, Kurmin Mashi, Kaduna.
The former presidential aide in his reaction recalled that the Kaduna State Governor undermined President Goodluck Jonathan’s almajiri education program, calling it a ‘fraud’, despite the fact that 165 almajiri schools were built.
Reno further stated that the same person is now acting on the program he had once described as a fraud.

On October 12, 2014, Nasir @Elrufai undermined then President @GEJonathan’s almajiri education program, calling it a ‘fraud’, despite the fact that 165 almajiri schools were built. Today he‘s crying crocodile tears over almajiri. Nigerians are just too gullible!#BuhariTormentor pic.twitter.com/uPJDNLldxT
