Tinubu promises to reform Almajiri system, attract Nigerian doctors abroad to fix health sector


Speaking on how his government will attend to make Nigerian youths productive if he wins the 2023 presidential election, Tinubu, said there will be student loans and there will be a conducive template for youths to develop the technology.

Though, the former Lagos state governor did not specify how to achieve it but boasted that he succeeded in turning many liabilities into assets while governing Lagos.


“There will be student loans (for Nigerian students). We are going to reform the Almajiri system. The youth can develop technology language on their own,” Tinubu said.

Almajiri refers to a system of Islamic education practised in northern Nigeria where male children and youths leave the comfort of their parents to seek Islamic knowledge.

However, the Almajiri has been widely criticised as these male youths are visibly seen on the streets of all northern Nigerian cities littering motor parks, ATM centres, hotels, brothels, gridlocks and even religious places to beg for alms.


Most of them have been turned into pawns in the hands of the political elite which uses them for selfish interests to the detriment of Nigerian society.

He also vowed to attract the best of Nigerian doctors abroad back to the country to fix the nation’s health sector.

Tinubu made this vow while speaking on the topic, “Nigeria’s 2023 Elections: Security, Economic and Foreign Policy Imperatives,” at the Chatham House in London on Monday.

The conversation was moderated by the Director, Africa Programmes at the at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Alex Vines.
