School Fees Hike: Arewa Group Pats Governor Yusuf Over Reduc

Kano Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf

The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has lauded the Kano State Government for slashing school fees in state-owned tertiary institutions.

The chairman of the state’s chapter of the forum, Dr Goni Umar said this in a statement on Thursday in Kano.

Umar described the decision as both revolutionary and a hallmark of visionary leadership.

He also noted with delight the state government’s resolve to restore its rested foreign scholarship programme designed to sponsor 1001 best graduates abroad for further studies.

Umar commended the government "for prompt release of about N700 million registration fees for 700 state students at the Bayero University Kano."

He said that "slashing of the fees and the payment of the fees would ease the burden on parents and students occasioned by the current economic hardship."

Goni also appealed to all sections of the community to support educational development in all facets.

The Governor, Abba Yusuf recently approved the slashing of the registration fees by half in the state owned tertiary institutions to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal on the people.

The institutions included Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil, Yusuf Maitama Sule University Kano: Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education, Kumbotso: Audu Bako College of Agriculture, Dambatta and other state-owned tertiary institutions.
