Gombe to integrate Almajiri education into school system

The Gombe State Governor,  Inuwa Yahaya, says his administration has established an effective collaboration with the National Board of Arabic and Islamic Studies to ensure an effective integration of qur’anic education into formal system of learning.

Yahaya stated this on Sunday during the opening ceremony of the 24th Annual National Qur’anic Recitation Competition, organised by the Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’ah Wa’ikamatis sunnah at Pantami stadium Gombe.

He said, “Efforts have been put in place on the integration of qur’anic schools into the formal education system because only effective integration of both types of education will produce the required human capital development that will reduce to the barest minimum the problem of unemployment and youths restiveness such as what we witnessed few weeks ago in some parts of the country.

“The collaboration between the Gombe State Government and NBAIS will ensure that the qur’anic school system and the products of the integrated education are fully certificated to enable them to either continue with the formal education or use their acquired skills for meaningful ventures.”

He said that his administration had registered over 600 tsangaya schools across the state.

He described qur’anic recitation as a life-transforming activity and commended the national leadership of JIBWIS for choosing Gombe to host this year’s competition.

The National Chairman, JIBWIS Council of Ulamas, Ash-Sheikh Muhammad Jingir, commended Yahaya for his support.
