 University introduces N15,000 monthly job scheme for students

 

The Vice Chancellor of Bayero University, Kano (BUK), Professor Sagir Adamu-Abbas, has disclosed that the institution has introduced a job scheme for students.

Adamu-Abbas said the university engaged students to render some services to the institution, and they were paying N15,000 monthly.

He spoke during the weekend in Kano when he received a delegation from the Education Correspondents Association of Nigeria (ECAN) at the main campus of the university.


Adamu-Sagir said: “The university equally introduced a kind of job scheme for students, whereby they were engaged to render some services to the university and they were paid N15,000 monthly.

“This does not affect their normal learning because it does not take much of their time as some were to clean some surroundings or render certain minus service within the university and got paid at the end of the month.”

Speaking on the increase in registration fees, the Vice Chancellor lamented that the cost of running the institution was enormous, especially the high cost of providing electricity.

He revealed that the bill for electricity is about N35 million monthly, while the bill for the purchase of diesel for generators is about N40 million.

Vice Chancellor Adamu-Abbas said the management was forced to increase registration because it was practically impossible to provide social services to a student population of around 45,000, including postgraduates, and a staff population of over 5,000, teaching and non-teaching
