Kaduna state governor, El-Rufai pledges to sponsor education of Almajiri boy who doesn’t like to beg from primary school till University



An Almajiri boy ran into luck as Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has pledged to sponsor his education from primary school till he graduates from the University.


The promise came after a Twitter user @el_bonga shared a photo of the boy that learnt how to polish shoes for commercial purpose because he doesn’t like to beg.

The 13-year-old boy identified as Usman, had also said that he was out of school because he had no sponsor.

@el_bonga tweeted,

This is 13-year-old Usman, an Almajiri boy from Maiduguri. Because he doesn’t like to beg, he learnt how to shine and repair shoes from his brother where he earns an average of N500 a day. When I asked him about school, he said: “even if I want to school, no one will sponsor me.”

Reacting to the tweet, Governor El-Rufai described the young boy as ‘hardworking’, and further promised to sponsor his education.
