Kano State Government has settled over N2 billion outstanding fees of its students in El-Razi University in Sudan,
The debt was incurred by the administration of ex-governor Rabiu Kwankwaso.
“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, Egypg 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 attitude would not in any way benefit the state or the country.
“What it entails is not the issue of politicizing any aspect of education, whoever has to be a critic, has to be positive in his criticisms as nobody is perfect. Now that we are patient enough, we have paid the money,” he added.
