Governor Abba Yusuf Kabir of Kano State has announced further measures to alleviate the suffering of students in the state by reducing state owned tertiary registration fees by 50 percent.

The State Hon. Commissioner for Higher Education, Dr. Yusuf Ibrahim Kofarmata made this known late last night during a press briefing at the state government house, Kano.

This is coming after the governor approved the release of N700Million to pay off Kano students’ school fees, studying at Bayero University, Kano last week.

According to Kofar Mata, the move was part of the governor’s resolve to alleviate the compounding financial hardship experienced by students and their parents in recent times.

The decision which was taken after a meeting with the various heads of tertiary institutions in the state is further believed will help reduce the effects of subsidy removal and inflation.

However, the gesture is intended to cater only fo indigenous students studying in the eight state-owned tertiary institutions which includes; Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil, Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education, Kumbotso, Aminu Kano College of Legal and Ialamic Studies.

Others are; Kano State Polytechnic, Audu Bako College of Agriculture, Dambatta, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso College of Advanced and Remedial Studies, Tudu no Wada and Kano State College of Education and Preliminary Studies.

The governor charged the state students to remain committed to their studies so as to come out with flying colors, adding that his administration will continue on laudable policies that will further develop Kano educational sector.

You may also recalled that the Chairman , Nigerian Association of Small-Scale industrialists (NASSI) Kano branch, Alh. Aminu Ibrahim Kurawa appealed to the state governor last Friday after paying the school fee of 7000 Kano students in Bayero University to consider other Kano students studying in other tertiary institutions in the state and even beyond and extend the gesture to them too.
