No room for Almajiri in Ebonyi – Umahi



ALMAJIRI kids are not welcome in any part of Ebonyi State.

Gov. David Umahi made the order yesterday while reacting to reports that Almajiri kids are being smuggled into South East after their expulsion from some northern states in wake of coronavirus pandemic.

According to the governor, they won’t be entertained in any part of Ebonyi State.

“We will not be afraid to say that there will not be Almajiris in Ebonyi State and the Northern Governors I commend them, they said go to your state of origin. We will not allow Almajiris in Ebonyi State. Ebonyi will not allow Amajiris, they should go to their states of origin. We have to as a people  begin to tell ourselves the truth,” he stated.

Gov. Umahi also banned cattle rearing around the new Government House located inside the Centenary City, Abakaliki.

“I have directed the Chief Security Officer to meet with the security people. Please I don’t want to see any cow within the premises of the centenary city How can I be struggling with cows to come into Government House? Please, in the entire centenary city, I don’t want to see any cow.

Not just Government House, anywhere that is called centenary city; international market, the mall. This is insulting. So, security people should do meeting with the cattle owners whether it is Hausa cows or Igbo cows because I can also see some Igbo cows and I don’t want to see it again,” he added.
