Insecurity: Ganduje Shuts Down Tertiary Institutions In Kano [Full List]
Governor Abdullahi Gnaduje of Kano State has directed the closure of four tertiary institutions in the North-west state.
Naija News recalls that the Kano State Governor had on Friday ordered the closure of ten boarding schools in the state.
This is following the abduction of over 300 female students in neighbouring Zamfara State by bandits.
The shutting down of the institution was announced by the Kano State Commissioner for Higher Education, Mariya Bunkure, in a statement on Saturday.
He said, “The Kano State Government under the able leadership of His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has directed the closure of some tertiary institutions in the state with immediate effect.”
The schools to be shut down include: RMK College of Advanced and Remedial Studies, T/Wada; School of Environmental Studies Gwarzo; School of Rural Technology and Entrepreneurship Dev (SORTED), Rano and ABCOAD, Dambatta, are the schools involved.
The government advised all students and staff of the above mentioned schools to vacate the campuses as soon as possible.
According to the Commissioner, the government will announce the date for schools reopening.
Meanwhile, the kidnapped students and staff of the Government Science College in Kagara, Niger State have been released by their abductors.
It was gathered that the students and staff who have been in captivity for days were released on Saturday morning.
It was reported that the students and the staff were released from a location close to where the fifty-three abductees were released a week ago.
