Al-Qalam Is The Cheapest Private University In Nigeria — V

The Vice-Chancellor of  Al-Qalam University Katsina, Prof. Nasiru Musa-Yauri, has revealed that the university charges the least tuition fee among private universities in Nigeria.

Musa-Yauri while speaking to journalists in Katsina on Wednesday said 80% of the students who attend the university are not from rich families. 

He said against what is believed by the general public, most of the institution's students are from average and low-income earning families.

According to the VC, the Islamic-oriented university was established in 2005 to function as a community and non-profitable institution.

He explained that low tuition fees were charged to grant education access to members of the Muslim community and the general public. 

Musa-Yauri reiterated the university's dedication to ensuring the students are of good conduct, morals and decency as preached by all religions, both within and outside the university environment.

The Don added that the school was also working towards improving the good manners the students received from home and protecting them from going off track.

He further stated that the university had no tolerance for academic misconduct, irresponsible lifestyles and anti-social behaviours which were not in agreement with what every religion teaches. 

“What we have started now is to control, within the university’s laws, the student’s actions, and we have already sent the signal.

“We placed posters where they are leaving that the university does not promote some of the characters that are not expected from them; we cannot accept it because we have regulations.

“The parents of these students have entrusted their children in our hands, therefore, we cannot condone any immoral behaviour within or outside the school.

“You can see that even in their off campuses, we are monitoring them. Therefore, we are asking the public to be fair and just to our students and stop generalisation.

We have stringent punishments against immoral behaviours,” he said.

The VC called on the populace to cooperate with the university by reporting any unacceptable acts displayed by students with evidence.

He said that this would help the management to take necessary actions.
