Kaduna State Governor, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, yesterday ordered the reopening of tertiary institutions closed down due to security challenges in Southern Kaduna.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the governor, Samuel Aruwan, said government announced the reopening following improved security situation in the southern part of the state.
Aruwan, however, disclosed that the state had decided to adopt a multi-campus structure for its tertiary institutions and assigned at least one campus to each council area.
“The new policy has been approved by the State Executive Council as a means to further expand access to higher education, make accreditation of courses more cost-effective and respond to the desire of several communities to host tertiary institutions.
“The government explained that a multi-campus structure will help to make the state’s tertiary institutions more inclusive and expand the range of courses that students can study by making most courses available in all campuses,” the statement reads.
