Dan Yakubu: Alamajiri Who Turned Economics Graduate. Photos by dainformant(m): 9:48am On Apr 27, 2019
A young man is being celebrated online after beating the odds as an Alamijiri to make out something for himself in life.

Dan Yakubu, a graduate of BSc. Economics with Second Class Honours from the University of Maiduguri, Borno State is part of the 2019 Batch A Corp members that have just come out from the NYSC Orientation Camp. He did his camp at the Kaiama NYSC Orientation Camp, Kolokuma LGA, Bayelsa State State.

The little Dan Yakubu was separated from the comfort of his family who are based in Potiskum, Yobe State and taken to Kano to fend for himself as an Almajiri.

In the course of his begging (Almajiranci), Dan Yakubu ran into a kind-hearted generous Hajiya named 'Fatima A. Modibbo'. The altruistic Hajiya Fatima instantly took interest in the little boy. Stimulated by his brightness and smartness, she fostered him and singlehandedly sponsored his education right from primary school up to the level he found himself today.

Speaking, Hajiya Fatima who broke the news credited the feat to God, and narrated how she met him.

"Allahamdullah! My almajiri has finished his university degree, with second class lower in Economics. He's serving in Bayelsa right now. He came to my house when he was about six years old, he had such an engaging smile and melodious voice when begging, that I took to him right away. The rest I can now say is history.

Though he had First Class in Begging, that didn't stop him from achieving one of his goals.

This should serve as a big motivation to some people who feel like taking 2 shots of sniper because of the hard times they're facing.

Many thanks to Hajiya Fatima who offered him something better than Tuwò Shinkafà or Nairà Gomà (N10)

This was exactly what GEJ had for them, To take them off the streets and make them useful to the society by building Almajiri Schools, BUT the Northern Elites called it "Haram" and used it to fight the kindhearted Goodluck Ebele Jonathan politically.

Good deeds should be done with intention not attention.

All na wash, if he did not allow the university to pass through him. I won't be surprised to see this one behave like another higher version of almajiri. Congratulations to him.

THE RELIGION PERMITS THAT WE GIVE BIRTH AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BUT, IT ALSO SADDLES US TO BE RESPONSIBLE AND NOT TO GIVE BIRTH WITHOUT TAKING GOOD CARE OF THE CHILDREN BECAUSE, GOD IS GOING TO ASK QUESTIONS AND WE'D ACCOUNT FOR HOW WE TOOK CARE OF OUR CHILDREN.
UNFORTUNATELY, THE ILLITERATE FOOLS JUST GIVE BIRTH ANYHOW. THE MOMENT THEIR CHILDREN CAN WALK, THEY CHASE THEM OUT OF THE HOUSE OR ABANDON THEM TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES.


THE BORN-TROWAY LIFE IS IN THEIR BLOOD AND THEY CONTINUE TO HAVE MORE WIVES AND GIVE BIRTH TO CHILDREN EVERY YEAR

FEAR-NORTH.

What most of this almajiri boys need is orientation. Funny enough education to some extent is free in some of the core northern states .am sure of kebbi state where am resident.i know alot of students on monthly stipends as a way of encouraging them.may God help them and help the other parts of the country too cos each region got its own challenge.
