Ezeife said: "A president of Igbo origin will end Almajarai by effective training of the Almajarai for economic use. The same thing goes for the talakawas because in Igbo land, everybody is equal to everybody.

"Everybody is free to pursue economic survival. Everybody is free to climb as fast as he can or to what extent they can. Therefore, if a president of Igbo origin is in place, this Almajiri business will disappear after a number of years."

The lengthy narration details the harrowing and agonizing experiences of Prosper as a member of the almajiri educational system while he was growing up.

In the opening paragraphs of the story, Prosper recounted how life as an almajiri was filled with abject suffering and how he lived a life of wretchedness. He narrated how young children moved around in pairs begging for alms and food.

According to Prosper, the decision to quit the system and find a better way of living was taken just when he was aged 10. He said it was the wisest decision he took in life.

"I was ten when I decided to remove the cloak of destitution and face life squarely. It still remains the turning point in my life and the wisest decision I’d ever taken," he said.
