The National Commission for Almajiri and Out-of-School Children’s Education has reaffirmed its commitment to enrolling 10 million out-of-school children in School by 2027.

It also says the Commission is actively working to integrate Western education into the Almajiri school curriculum to ensure a comprehensive educational experience that prepares the children for a brighter future.

In a message on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir, the Executive Secretary of the Commission, Dr Muhammad Idris felicitates with Nigerians, especially the Almajiri and out-of-school children, who are central to its mission.

It reads “As we commemorate Eid-el-Kabir, a celebration of sacrifice and faith, I extend warm greetings to all Nigerians, with special recognition for the Almajiri and out-of-school children, who are central to our Commission’s mission”

The statement calls on all stakeholders to renew their dedication to education as a fundamental right for every child.

It pledges continued collaboration with stakeholders, including the Federal Ministry of Education, state governments, and development partners, to address the multifaceted challenges faced by these vulnerable children.

It acknowledges the leadership and unwavering support of President Bola Tinubu which has been instrumental in advancing efforts to eradicate the challenges faced by Almajiri and out-of-school children in Nigeria.

It reads in part: “President Tinubu’s leadership and unwavering support have been instrumental in advancing our goals thus far. Together, we are confident in our ability to make a significant impact and ensure that every child has access to quality education, regardless of their background or circumstances”

The Commission urges the Muslim faithful to embody the values of compassion, empathy, and selflessness that define Eid-el-Kabir and strive to positively impact the lives of those in need, particularly the Almajiri and out-of-school children.
