Zulum had in November, 2020 set up a reform committee with the mandate to come up with an action plan that can be applied to end street begging and abuse of children through almajiri system, called Sangaya in Borno.

The committee which had members from all Islamic denominations, was chaired by Khalifa Aliyu Ahmad Abulfatahi.

The Governor assured that the report will be studied thoroughly and appropriate measures would be put in place in accordance with the committee’s recommendations.
