A Former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has criticized Tanko Yakassai over the statement he made concerning Almajiri.
Yakassai has earlier said in an interview that the northern youths that were intercepted in the southern parts of the country are not almajiri.
“You need to investigate those who are sending these Almajirai. Is it true that they are Almajirai?: “I saw a bunch of youths wearing shirts; the Almajirai don’t wear shirts. In the beginning, they said Fulani and now they changed to Almajirai,”
Reacting to the comment on his twitter handle, Fani-Kayode said:
“Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, the elder statesman from Kano, has said those that are flooding the southern states are not almajiris.
“Would someone please ask him to tell us who and what they are and what their mission is in the south?”
