The Kano State government has reduced the registration fees charged by the state-owned tertiary institutions. Dr. Yusuf Kofarmata, the Commissioner for Higher Education in the state, made this announcement during a briefing with journalists at the Kano Government House on Monday.
Dr. Kofarmata elaborated that this decision was the outcome of a meeting held between the heads of the tertiary institutions and the State Governor, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf.
He went on to explain that the decision to implement a 50 percent reduction in fees was prompted by the prevailing economic circumstances resulting from the removal of fuel subsidies. This reduction will apply to all Kano State natives enrolled in regular courses for the 2023/2024 academic session across institutions such as the Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil (ADUSTECH), Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano (YUMSUK), and Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education.
In addition, this reduction will be extended to other institutions including Kano State Polytechnic, Aminu Kano College of Islamic and Legal Studies, 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).
Dr. Kofarmata emphasized that this decision aligns with the state government’s dedication to advancing education. He pointed out that this commitment is exemplified by the reinstatement of foreign scholarships for more than 1,000 students.
