Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The Na­tional Uni­ver­si­ties Com­mis­sion (NUC) has given pro­vi­sional ap­proval to the newly es­tab­lished Ji­gawa State Univer­sity in Kafin- Hausa to ad­mit its pioneer stu­dents.

Prof. Ab­dul­lahi Ribadu, vice chan­cel­lor of the univer­sity, made this known when he paid a cour­tesy visit on the Emir of Gumel, Al­haji Ahmed Muhammed-Sani, on Fri­day.

Ribadu said NUC ap­proved 15 de­gree cour­ses for the new univer­sity, and that the nec­es­sary struc­tures have been put in place for the com­mence­ment of the univer­sity this year.

He said he was in the emir’s palace to seek his sup­port for the de­vel­op­ment of the univer­sity.

In his re­marks, Muhammed-Sani en­joined youths to em­brace univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion be­cause it was vi­tal for their ad­vance­ment in life.

The emir promised to sup­port the univer­sity in its quest to train youths for the progress of the state. (NAN)
