    Gov. Abba Yusuf of Kano State has paid the registration fees of 1,740 newly admitted students at state-owned Saadatu Rimi University of Education, Kumbosto.

    The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Yusuf spoke on Saturday during the institution’s maiden matriculation.

    In 2023 the National Universities Commission (NUC) approved the upgrade of Sa’adatu Rimi College of Education in Kumbotso, Kano State to a university of education.

    He said that the state government was fully committed towards supporting education needs of students regardless of political affiliation.

    The state government, he said, has also allocated 30 per cent of its 2024 budget to education, a significant increase from previous years.
