Dr. Kofar-Mata conveyed the governor’s approval for this significant reduction, stating, “The Governor has issued the approval for the reduction of 50% of the registration fees for all Kano State indigenes studying regular courses for the 2023/2024 academic session at state-owned institutions.”

He further explained that this initiative was designed to mitigate the impact of the current economic challenges, particularly for students and their families. The removal of fuel subsidies and the subsequent economic difficulties have led to elevated prices of essential commodities, making life strenuous for the masses.


The commissioner emphasized that this decision will benefit Kano State indigenes studying at various institutions, including Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology in Wudil, Yusuf Maitama Sule University in Kano, Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education in Kumbotso, Aminu Kano College of Legal and Islamic Studies, Kano State Polytechnic, Audu Bako College of Agriculture in Danbatta, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso College of Advance and Remedial Studies in Tudun Wada, and Kano State College of Education.
