Governor Uba Sani has ordered the stoppage of levy collection by the Kaduna State University (KASU).
Muhammad Lawal Shehu, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said in a press release today that Sani said the collection of levies “negates the state government’s downward review of the extant fees regime announced in 2023, which was implemented as an intervention to cushion the effects of the general rising cost of living in the polity, especially in the wake of the petroleum subsidy removal.”
He said: “The Kaduna State government is committed to ameliorating the suffering of the people.
“It will continue to initiate policies, programmes and projects to bring succour to the poor, underserved and the vulnerable.
“It shall continue to take all necessary measures to ensure access to free and qualitative education for every citizen in Kaduna State from primary to tertiary level.”
