The Minister of Women Affairs, Mrs. Pauline Tallen says Almajiri children are being subjected to inhumane conditions.

Tallen lamented that the Almajiris were transported to their states of origins in trucks used in conveying cargo.

Speaking during the flag of the 2020 National Children’s Day celebration, themed: “Promoting Girl-Child Education for Sustainable Development’’, in Abuja, the minister appealed to Northern Governors to bring the issues of Almajiri to a logical conclusion and develop strategies that would address the situation.

“Apart from hunger and starvation, the Almajiris are saddled with the inhuman treatment of transporting them to their states of origin in trucks meant to convey cargo, the trauma of being rejected by their home state governments is painful, shameful and unacceptable.”

The minister further called on Northern governors to implement the Child Rights Act in their states to protect the human rights of Almajiris children, NAN reports.

“The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) should bring the issues of Almajiri to a logical conclusion, as well as respect and protect their human rights by implementing the Child Rights Act in states yet to pass it into law,” Tallen added.
