The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has ordered the closure of four tertiary institutions in the state.
This follows yesterday’s closure of ten boarding schools in the state.
The decision became necessary following the abduction of over 300 female students in neighbouring Zamfara State by bandits
The State Commissioner for Higher Education, Mariya Bunkure, in a statement on Saturday, 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.”
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.
