Miyetti Al­lah vows to pros­e­cute par­ents over low school enrolment

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ahmed Tahir Ajobe, Minna

The Miyetti Al­lah Kau­tal Hore has raised an alarm over low school enrolment among no­madic chil­dren, es­pe­cially across the North Cen­tral zone.

The Na­tional Vice Chair­man, North Cen­tral Zone of the group, Al­haji Idris Gi­dado Be­beji, said in Minna yes­ter­day that in the 21st cen­tury, ed­u­ca­tion in both Is­lamic and western was a ver­i­ta­ble means of mold­ing char­ac­ters in chil­dren to be­come bet­ter cit­i­zens, and the group would do in­ten­sive pub­lic en­light­en­ment cam­paign on the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion, af­ter which the group would com­mence clam­p­down on par­ents who failed to en­roll their chil­dren.

“Any par­ent who does not send their chil­dren to school would be sanc­tioned and even pros­e­cuted,” he said.
