• The Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufa’i, has suspended the plan to establish a new university in Kafachan earlier approved by the immediate past governor, Mukhtar Yero.

    The governor who announced the suspension on Tuesday in Kaduna, when he received officials of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND), said that the project was suspended because of inadequate funds.

    “The state government has no money to establish a new university; the previous administration which initiated the plan, did not make any provision for it in the 2015 budget,” he said.

    The governor said he would rather deploy the lean resources available to his government into the upgrading of existing facilities at the Kaduna State University, in line with global standard.

    He noted that infrastructure and learning facilities at the university were inadequate, forcing the institution to send some of its students elsewhere to complete their studies.

    El-Rufa’i said the focus of his administration was to expand the institution’s academic programmes and make the university rate among the best in the country. (NAN)
