The State-owned tertiary institutions’ registration costs have been decreased by the Kano State administration.
This was said by Dr. Yusuf Kofarmata, the State Commissioner for Higher Education, on Monday at a press conference with media at the Government House in Kano.
He continued by saying that Alh Abba Kabir Yusuf, the state governor, and the leaders of tertiary institutions met and came to the decision.
He claimed that the 50% cut was made in light of the current financial circumstances as a result of the elimination of gasoline subsidies.
He claimed that all Kano State natives enrolled in regular courses for the 2023–2024 academic year at the Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education, Yusuf Maitama Sule University, and Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil (ADUSTECH), will be impacted by the cut.
Audu Bako College of Agriculture, Danbatta, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso College of Advance and Remedial Studies, Tudun Wada, and Kano State College of Education and Remedial Studies (KACEPS) are a few more. Aminu Kano College of Islamic and Legal Studies, Kano State Polytechnic, and Danbatta are others.
He said that the choice was consistent with the State government’s dedication to the advancement of education, saying that this was demonstrated by the restoration of international scholarships for more than 1,000 students.
