Sokoto State University, matriculates 1367
The Vice Chancellor of Sokoto State University, Prof. NuhuYaqub, has confirmed on Monday 27th February 2017 at the 4th matriculation ceremony, that 1367 students were admitted out of 13,000 that chose the school as their first choice for the 2016/2017 academic session.
“This shows that this university is gaining ground in becoming an institution where both parents and students want to come to pursue their educational career.” He said.
He said this is a far cry from the more than12,000 candidates that chose the university as their second choice. He however, commended the state government for their efforts in providing adequate funds and facilities to the university.
He warned students against flouting the rules and regulations of the university and urged them to be honest, hard working and be dedicated to their studies and to also avoid any act capable of breaching the peaceful nature the university was known for.
The Governor of the state, AminuT ambuwal, on his visitation to the university, admonished the students to prepare mentally and physically for their academic sojourn in the institution.
He promised that his government would remain committed to the welfare of student and staff and will ensure they meet all requirements necessary for the forthcoming accreditation by the NUC.
The Vice Chancellor also used the same medium to commend the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND), the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC), among others, “for the massive support to the institution.”
The Commissioner for Higher Education, Alhaji Sahabi Gada, however, commended the state government for ensuring massive infrastructure development in the institution
