Over 300 students of the Dangote Ultramodern Skills Acquisition Centre constituting more than half of the total number of trainees have protested against their expulsion.

The students, who came out en mass protesting against what they called ‘illegal’ termination of their training without following due process, were at the Kano State House of Assembly and Emirs Palace accusing the centre Director General, Paul Quin, of being responsible for their travails.

The procession led by one of the expelled students, Abubakar Isma’il DTurawa, sought the intervention of all authorities concerned to restore them to the school.

“We are pleading with the government to kindly intervene and take us back to our centre for us to complete our training and benefits from all the packages planned for us,” he said.

Efforts to speak with the DG proved as he neither answered his calls nor replied to a text message sent to him.
