FCE Kano so­lic­its Sanusi, Gan­duje’s in­ter­ven­tion on var­sity sta­tus

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ibrahim Musa Giginyu, Kano

The Fed­eral Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion (FCE) Kano yes­ter­day ap­pealed for the as­sis­tance of the Kano State Gov­ern­ment and the Emi­rate Coun­cil in re­vert­ing the col­lege’s sta­tus quo as univer­sity of ed­u­ca­tion as de­cided by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment un­der Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan just be­fore the end of that ad­min­is­tra­tion in May 2015 but as re­jected by the Muham­madu Buahri gov­ern­ment.

The Chair­man of the newly con­sti­tuted Govern­ing Coun­cil of the col­lege, Malam Sal­ihu Luk­man Abubakar, made the ap­peal for a re­view by the Buhari gov­ern­ment when he led mem­bers of the govern­ing coun­cil to Gov­er­nor Ab­dul­lahi Umar Gan­duje and to the Emir of Kano, Malam Muham­madu Sanusi II.

At the Gov­ern­ment House, Luk­man told Gan­duje that a se­na­tor rep­re­sent­ing Kano brought up the is­sue and pro­posed a mo­tion to make the col­lege of ed­u­ca­tion a univer­sity of ed­u­ca­tion as pro­nounced ear­lier.

Re­spond­ing, Gov­er­nor Gan­duje said the col­lege was very strate­gic in the po­lit­i­cal equa­tion of Nige­ria and had long been award­ing de­grees.

On his own, the Emir of Kano told the vis­it­ing coun­cil mem­bers that with pre­vail­ing de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in the na­tion’s ed­u­ca­tional sec­tor, there was a need for the pro­duc­tion of more qual­i­fied teach­ers.
