By: ADAMU DABO

The Kano State Government has announced a special intervention to assist twenty-four thousand six hundred and fifty-one Kano indigenes who are facing challenges in paying their tuition fees at state and federal universities and colleges.

The initiative, termed Palliative Scholarship, aims to provide temporary relief to students in need.

Speaking at a press briefing, the Executive Secretary of the Kano State Scholarship Board, Honourable Kabiru Getso Haruna, emphasized the critical nature of this support, acknowledging that it would not be sustainable in the long term.

The government is committed to ensuring that all Kano indigenes have access to education through various scholarship programs.

Students enrolled in the specified institutions, including Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Bauchi, Federal College of Agriculture Hotoro, Federal University Dutsinma, Usman Danfodio University Sokoto, Federal University Kashere Gombe, University of Maiduguri, Federal University Gusau, Sule Lamido University Kafin Hausa, Umaru Musa University Katsina and Federal University Dutse, are required to report for screening starting tomorrow, Tuesday, 12 March 2024 until Friday 15, March 2024.

Representatives from the State Scholarship Board will be present at the institutions to facilitate the process.

It is important to note that the Palliative Scholarships are a one-time assistance measure and will not be continued. The Kano State Government will maintain its commitment to providing mandatory and regular scholarships to support Kano indigenes pursuing higher education.
