Zamfara State Governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle has insisted that his administration would not repatriate any Almajiri from the state, adding that those repatriated from other states can come to Zamfara and be accommodated.

The governor made his position known when he received two leading Islamic scholars, Sheikh Abdullahi Dallah Dallah, Chief Imam of Sambo Dan-Ashafa Jumaat Mosque, Gusau and Sheikh Bello Kanwa for a Sallah homage.

Governor Matawalle also announced the scrapping of the committee he earlier constituted for the repatriation of Almajiri from the State and cancelled the repatriation plan.
