SOHT, Kano Establishes Committees To Checkmate Internal Abnormalities


In her effort to ensure positive transformation in the activities of the school, the newly appointed Ag. Principal of School of Health Technology, Kano, Hajiya Rakiya Mukhtar, has established Committees that will scrutinize all affairs of the institution with a view to have a harmonious and conducive learning environment for students.

It could be recalled that Hajiya Rakiya Mukhtar was appointed as the Ag. Principal of the school by the State Ministry of Health vide the letter MOH/STAFF-S/T.II/I dated 9th June, 2023 following the redeployment of the former principal.

Consequently upon outcry of the students on the alleged internal odds bedeviling the school, the Ag. Principal deems it pertinent to put hands on deck with all the staff in order to sanitize the system as well as rectify the allegations levelled against the previous leadership so as to achieve efficient taking over and smooth continuity of the operationalization of the institution.

In a statement signed by the Information officer state ministry of health Ibrahim Abdullahi said the he Committees include the Physical Infrastructures and Training Resource Committee, the Operational Departments and Units Committee and the Human Resource and Administration Committee.

Others are the Admission Policy (student admission and registration) Committee, the Alleged Sexual Transgression Committee and the Reformation of semester Examination Modalities Committee.

While inaugurating the committees, Hajiya Rakiya charged members to work judiciously with dedication, zeal and intent to serve the State in order to justify the confidence reposed on them.

She further stated that the Committees are formed to checkmate all abnormalities which students of the institution are complaining of, adding that it is aimed at restoring the lost glory of the school and not to witch-hunt anybody.

She explained that His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Kano State, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf and the State Ministry of Health are worried about the unfolding situation in the school in recent times, hence the imperativeness of finding out the root cause of the problems and ways of solving them once and for all.

Each committee was provided with terms of reference (ToR) to work on and to submit its report on the stipulated time.

In another positive approach to put things into the right track, the Ag. Principal has instructed for the immediate closure of the registration for 2023/2024 session admission and also directed that henceforth, all payments to be centrally made at the account office (not in the departments or units).

She also directed for the issuance of complaint forms free of charge to all students who require one and that students from Dawakin Tofa SHT to be on two weeks break pending proper arrangements for their accommodation.
