KADUNA GOVERNOR CUTS TERTIARY SCHOOL FEES

Date:

Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani, has announced a substantial reduction in fees for state tertiary institutions. Under the new policy, students will now pay only 70% of the previous fees, marking a 30% decrease. The decision comes in response to public concerns about the high fees affecting enrollment and retention rates in these institutions. Governor Sani stated that this move is in line with his administration’s commitment to mitigating the impact of the rising cost of living, especially following the recent removal of petroleum subsidies in Nigeria.

During a press conference at the Government House in Kaduna, Governor Sani emphasized his administration’s dedication to providing accessible education for the youth of Kaduna State. He referred to the promise made during his election campaign that upon taking office on May 29, 2023, to prioritize the well-being of all citizens and leave no part of the state behind.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the heads of tertiary institutions were directed to gather information about the current fees in state-owned institutions. The outcome highlighted that the existing fees were burdensome, resulting in a notable decline in student enrollments. To address this issue and reverse the trend, a competitive fee model was recommended to promote quality education and better accessibility.

Governor Sani affirmed that his administration accepts these recommendations and has consequently revised the fees for various institutions. For instance, Kaduna State University’s fee has been reduced from N150,000 to N105,000, a 30% reduction, while Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic’s fee has been halved from N100,000 to N50,000. Additionally, the reduction in fees applies to institutions such as the College of Education, Gidan Waya, and the Shehu Idris College of Health Sciences and Technology, Makarfi.

Governor Sani reiterates his commitment to prioritizing citizens’ welfare; ensuring free and quality education from primary to secondary school, enhancing teachers’ welfare and teaching standards, improving infrastructure, fostering ICT competence, and investing in Technical & Vocational Education.
