Ganduje Settles N2billion Outstanding School Fees Of Kano Students In Foreign Universities

Kano State Government said it had settled over N2 billion outstanding fees of its students in El-Razi University in Sudan.

The debt according to the state government was incurred by the administration of ex-governor Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje made the disclosure when he received the Chairman Board of Trustees of the University, Prof. Ibrahim Ghandour on Tuesday in Kano.

“My government inherited students from the previous administration with a lot of money to be paid.

“And through good mediation between the University and Kano State, we were able to settle this amount so that our students will complete their studies,” he stated.

Ganduje who was represented by his deputy, Dr. Nasiru Gawuna disclosed that his administration had paid almost 80% of all the fees of its students in India, Egypt, and Cyprus, which were also inherited from the previous administration.

The governor added that the administration recently paid over N300 million to Cyprus University to enable students sponsored by the state to complete their programmes.‎

He berated individuals politicizing the issue of education in the state, saying such an attitude would not in any way benefit the state or the country.
