Niger Govt slashes tuition fees of university of education by 50%



The Niger Government has slashed the tuition fees of its university of education (Abdulkadir Kure University) by 50 per cent, toward reducing the burden of fuel subsidy removal on the students and their parents.

This is contained in a statement signed by Prof Muhammed Yahaya-Kuta, Pro-chancellor of the university on Friday in Minna.

Gov. Mohammed Bago said the reduction is aimed at alleviating the current compounding financial hardships on students and parents,” the pro–chancellor said.

Bago said that the move would also ameliorate the effect of the current economic hardship on students and their parents, following the hardship occasioned by the fuel subsidy removal by the Federal Government.

“All students studying regular courses in the institution are to enjoy the total relief of a 50 per cent reduction in the registration fee in the ongoing 2023/2024 academic session,” he said.

While congratulating the students, parents, and the people of the state on the development, the governor hoped that the beneficiaries and entire people of the state would lend their support to the government to enable it succeed.

The governor implored the beneficiaries of the gesture to reciprocate by being more committed to their studies for the development of the state and humanity at large.
