Jail Fathers Who Allow Their Children To Beg On The Streets – Emir Of Kano

Emir Sanusi Muhammed

Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II,  is seeking for a jail term for irresponsible fathers, especially those who send their children to beg on the streets in the name of Almajiri system.

Muhammadu Sanusi, who is former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, in keynote address today, February 20, at the Joint National Conference in Abuja, of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and Future Assured Initiative, advised men to take full responsibility for their marriages, especially in economic terms, by marrying only when they can take care of a wife and bear only children they can cater for.
The joint conference is themed: “Repositioning the Muslim Family for National Development.”
The Emir challenged State Governors and States Houses of Assemblies to make laws which will regulate some of the vices such as Out of School Children, Almajiri system, divorces and drug issues in the society.
“I will suggest that henceforth any man who wants to divorce his wife should be ready to leave the house for her and the children. I am advocating that men should send their children to go and beg for alms instead let man go and beg to feed the children.”
Emir Muhammad Sanusi suggested that Almajiris should not be arrested in the streets, arguing that their fathers should instead be made to face the music.
