‘Tertiary schools in Southern Kaduna to re-open’

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state yesterday announced that following the marked improvement in the security situation in Southern Kaduna, the government has decided to re-open all tertiary institutions in the area.

He also disclosed that the state government has decided to adopt a multi campus structure for all its tertiary institutions, a decision that will assign at least one tertiary institution to each of the 23 local government areas in the state.

Speaking when he received stakeholders from Southern Kaduna, he thanked the delegation, which included Air Commodore Emmanuel Jekada (retd), Catholic Bishop of Zaria, Bishop George Dodo, Justice Haruna Makeri, Mrs. Grace Ambi and Dr. Bege Katuka, among others, for helping to stabilise and restore peace in the affected local government areas.

 

He said he was delighted to personally thank the stakeholders for their role in promoting peace in Southern Kaduna.

 

The governor acknowledged that several persons invested their time, energy and resources in the cause of peace.

 

“I salute you for helping to uphold a common humanity, for keeping the voice of reason alive. It is voices like yours that are helping to anchor peace, upsetting the designs of people who think that a relentless focus on ethnicity and religion is the best way to advance their personal agenda. We are determined not to allow anyone to profit from strife. Thank you for your contributions to the steady advance of peace.”

 

El-Rufai also announced that all tertiary institutions owned by the Kaduna state government will henceforth operate a multi-campus structure.

This new policy has been approved by the State Executive Council as a means to further expand access to higher education, make accreditation of courses more cost-effective and respond concretely to the desire by several communities to host tertiary institutions.
