Our administration will revisit Almajiri education – APC
The All Progressives Congress will, among other things, revisit the implementation of the educational programmes embarked upon by the out-going administration, including the Al-majiri system.
The National Youth Leader of APC, Alhaji Ibrahim Jalo, said this in an interview with journalists in Abuja, on Thursday.
Jalo said this after a party organised by the youth wing of the party to celebrate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s success at the presidential poll.
He explained that Nigerian youths would fare better under an APC administration with Buhari at the helm of affairs.
Jalo said, “The Almajiri programme is going on but for us who are educationists, we know that the system is not functioning the way it ought to. It is just there for political gains but I want to assure you that it will be revisited and implemented in a proper way for the benefit of the participants.
“We have a manifesto and those who know Buhari can attest to the fact that he is a man that respects institutions and due process.
“Our party manifesto has spelt all the APC administration will do in all areas, especially with regard to job creation, internal security, prudent management of our resources and other social programmes that will touch the lives of young people and the elderly.”
He expressed confidence that the forthcoming governorship elections will help the party consolidate on its gains.
This, he said would be made possible by a number of factors, including but not limited to, the band wagon effect and the near eradication of the rigging machine controlled by the out-going ruling party.
Earlier, the Senator-elect for Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, expressed gratitude to party supporters for keeping faith with the party.
He pledged that the Buhari-led administration will ensure the rescue of the kidnapped Chibok school pupils and that no part of Nigerian territory is lost to insurgents.
