He also said the Kano State Governor Alh Abba Kabir Yusuf, has issued the heroic approval for the slash of 50% of the registration fees for all Kano state indigenes studying at state institutions to cushion the worsening economic condition the people have been going through in recent days all over the nation.

He similarly said the decision will further reduce the effect of this current economic adversity on passionate students and their ardent parents who might be suffering from the consequences of fuel subsidy removal and economic hardship which is making life very difficult for the masses as a result of unimaginable inflation of essential commodities.

Furthermore, he added “it is worth mentioning that this decision is in line with the core objective and overarching government focus on education, not only education but quality education and sustainable educational development in the state.”

He further said “On this note, His Excellence Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf is primed to hit the ground running with laudable pro-poor educational policies, such as the restoration of the foreign scholarship programme committed to sponsor 1001 best graduates this year, unconditional payment of the registration fees of Kano Indigene studying in Bayero University, Kano, and reopening of various institutes of entrepreneurship and vocational studies.”

According to him government is vivid in its resolve to redeem the glory of the state with these laudable programmes, which would surely enhance the survival chances of well-meaning individuals with the required skills and training, thereby making education accessible to everyone in the state.

The Commissioner While congratulating students, parents, and the people of Kano on the cherished development, he hoped that the beneficiaries and entire people of the state will lend their unflinching support and cooperation to the administration in its frantic determination to bring overall progress and development of our dear state.
