In a bid to alleviate the impact of subsidy removal and rising registration fees in tertiary institutions, the Kano state government has taken a significant step by reducing the school fees of state-owned tertiary institutions by 50 percent.
Dr. Yusfu Kofar Mata, the state’s Commissioner for Higher Education, explained in a recent interview that this move aims to provide financial relief to parents during these challenging economic times.
The decision to reduce school fees comes in response to the recent economic challenges and increased financial burdens faced by families.
Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf’s administration, recognising the economic difficulties, took the initiative to ease the financial strain on parents and students caused by the recent hike in registration fees.
Among the institutions benefiting from this fee reduction are Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology (ADUST), Yusuf Maitama Sule University (YUMSUK), and Aminu Kano College of Islamic and Legal Studies (AKSIL). Additionally, Kano State Polytechnic, Sa’adatu Rimi College of Education, Audu Bako College of Agriculture, and Kano College of Remedial Science (KAS) are also included in this beneficial measure.
