Education is vital to one’s success in life and It is essential for an individual and society’s entire growth. Kano state is not left out in this conversation. While the era of pupils and students receiving lectures on the bare floor is also over in Kano, priority to the provision of modern learning materials to public schools in the state, as well as the 50 percent reduction of tuition fees for all tertiary institutions has remodeled the entire education system in Kano.

This attempt, by the Executive Governor of Kano state, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf within a period of one year in office has not only captured the attention of educators, students, and parents alike, but also set a pattern for other governors to emulate in their various states.

In October last year, the Kano state government under his administration spent N1.3 billion on payments to the National Examination Council and National Board for Technical Education registration fees of 57,000 indigent students of the state.

Meanwhile, amid that jubilation the state also flagged off the distribution of over two million educational materials to basic and post-basic schools in the state.

It was also during his first year in office that his administration recognized the financial burden which secondary school students and their families face when registering for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) and he swiftly made SSCR registration free for all Kano indigenes.

As the cost of living continues to rise, accessing higher education becomes increasingly challenging.

Governor Abba also addressed this issue head-on by reducing tuition fees by 50 percent across all Kano State tertiary institutions.

In that attempt, whether students are pursuing degrees at universities, polytechnics, or colleges, they now benefit from more affordable education.

This move has not only eased the financial strain on many families who could not afford the exorbitant fees, but equally opened doors for aspiring professionals, ensuring that financial constraints do not hinder their academic pursuits and life ambitions.

By offering foreign scholarships to over 1000 Kano indigenes, Governor Abba’s administration has recorded a milestone achievement that empowers students to explore international education and bring back valuable knowledge to their communities.

His administration has invested significantly in improving infrastructure and enhancing the quality of education. New classrooms, well-equipped laboratories, and modern libraries have now sprung up across Kano’s educational institutions.
