Nafisa Abdullahi a Popular Kannywood film star, has advised Nigerian parents to avoid getting pregnant not to talk of giving birth to babies they can’t afford to take good care of.
The actress made this statement in a series of tweets on Saturday, saying:
“Stop giving birth to babies you know you can’t afford to take care of.
“God will hold you responsible for having children you can’t look after and giving them all the necessary guidance and parental care.
“God will ask you on the way and manner you raised your children, so those in the habit of having many children they cannot take care of, ending up in sending them far in search for knowledge get prepared,” the actress said.
Nafisa expressed her deep concern on the way some parents were sending their two to three-year-olds children to Almajiri school.
Although she didn’t direct her words at any part of the country or tribe, it is mostly common in Hausa land for young children to be sent to Islamic school far from their parents in search of knowledge (Almajiranci).
