Literacy is simply defined as the ability to read and write regardless of language. It is a gross ignorance to assume that only the ability to read and write in English defines literacy.
In the precolonial era, the Almajiri teachers and their pupils freely provided their community with Islamic Education, in addition to the development of Ajami i.e. reading and writing in Arabic alphabets. Prof Fafunwa mentions that there were 6000 Almajiri schools in Northern Nigeria through which writing came to the North first before any other region. Based on this system, which is founded upon the teachings of Qur’an and Hadith, the then Northern Nigeria was largely educated with a complete way of life, governance, customs, traditional craft, trade and even the mode of dressing.
Northern elites, middle class and even some lower class enroll their children in both English and Islamic school. Most of the lower class have their children enrolled in one form of Islamic school or the other, hence most northerner can read and write, the barrow pusher, the mairuwa, the maigadi, the trailer driver, the village farmer, most to an extent can read and write. Where then is the source of the often quoted high illiteracy of the north?

I attended Galadima primary school and Government Secondary School for my Primarily and Secondary education. Both of them in my village; in my Local Government and in my state: Malumfashi Local Government in Katsina state. What more, both are government owned – PUBLIC SCHOOLS. Some of our teachers then, were white-skinned. I can still remember Mrs. Abraham: my English teacher in my Primary School and Mr. Sandram, my Mathematics teacher in my Secondary School. Both of them were imported from India, thousands of miles away, just to come and teach a poor boy like me – an orphan. These expatriates were not kept only in Kaduna, the city center, but also at Malumfashi, a remote village where no Governor, no commissioner, no permsec and no director lived.

The word Almajiri is derived from the Arabic “Almuhajirun”, meaning an emigrant. It usually refers to a person who migrates from the luxury of his home to other places or to a popular teacher in the quest for Islamic knowledge. It is hinged on the Islamic concept of migration which is widely practiced especially when acquisition of knowledge at home is either inconvenient or insufficient.
