SANUSI IS RIGHT, ALMAJIRI EDUCATION IS BEST.
During the launch of an Almajiri book “Qur’anic schools in Northern Nigeria” written by a German Almajiri scholar, Hannah Hoechner; Emir Lamido Sanusi claimed that the North has been colonized by Western Education by relegating Almajiri education in Arabic and Ajami (Hausa language written in Arabic script) to the background.
Will Emir Sanusi explain how an Almajiri educated person posted to Lagos for National Service or other employment will communicate with non-Arabic and non-Hausa speaking colleagues? Africastallestman guesses that sign language is an option.
Emir Sanusi, henceforth will be treated by Almajiri Doctors, his palace designed by Almajiri Engineers, and his billions managed by Almajiri Bankers.
All structures constructed by Almajiri Engineers should be clearly labeled so that Africastallestman will avoid such structures.
Decolonization of the North must start with the elites. The next Emir of Kano must be an Almajiri educated person.
Emir Sanusi should withdraw all his children enrolled in inferior foreign Western institutions and re-enroll them in Northern Almajiri Schools. Once he does that, the North will be decolonized, as Almajiri education will reign supreme.
After all, the British are gone and Nigeria has a President who cannot produce his West African School Certificate (WASC) but has his Almajiri Certificate.
When will Germany adopt the superior Almajiri Education?
Finally, Emir Sanusi, twelve Northern States have introduced Sharia. What prevents those States from closing all Western style schools and mandating Almajiri Education for all? Maybe, Northern Nigeria may produce the first Almajiri educated Nobel Laureate in Physics!
