The Kano State Government set aside N8 billion for the construction of three “mega primary” schools in the state..

    The Kano State Government, under the leadership of Governor Abba Yusuf, has allocated a substantial budget of N8 billion for the construction of three state-of-the-art “mega primary” schools across the state. The primary objective behind these mega schools is to provide comprehensive educational facilities, fostering an environment conducive to learning, particularly for children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Governor Yusuf envisions these institutions as pivotal in laying the groundwork for a solid educational foundation, ensuring a prosperous future for the students.


    The strategic placement of these mega primary schools in each senatorial district reflects the government’s commitment to decentralizing quality education and making it accessible to communities at the grassroots level. These schools are slated to be equipped with modern learning materials, emphasizing the importance of qualitative education from the very beginning of a child’s academic journey.

    In addition to the mega primary schools initiative, the governor has allocated a separate fund of N6 billion for the comprehensive renovation of all existing primary schools. This move underscores the state’s dedication to revamping the entire primary education system, enhancing infrastructure, and creating an overall conducive learning environment.

    Governor Yusuf, recognizing the importance of specialized institutions, has taken commendable steps to enhance educational infrastructure. The government’s approval of renovating 26 special institutions, initiated by former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, stands as a testament to this commitment. Notably, 17 of these institutions have already undergone successful renovation, marking significant progress in elevating educational facilities.

    In his pursuit of creating a conducive learning environment, Governor Yusuf vows to eliminate the practice of pupils receiving lessons on bare floors. This commitment extends beyond primary education, with substantial funds allocated for critical projects. A N500 million budget has been set aside for constructing a hostel at Aliko University Wudil, while an additional N150 million supports the establishment of the new Environmental and Climate Department at Maitama Sule University. These endeavors exemplify the government’s dedication to fostering a holistic and quality education system.

    Governor Yusuf’s commitment extends to addressing higher education needs, evident in the allocation of over N500 million for the introduction of new courses at the State Polytechnic and Management Institution. Furthermore, Kano Islamic Legal Studies and other institutions benefit from a financial injection exceeding N100 million for the registration of novel courses. This comprehensive approach reflects Governor Yusuf’s dedication to advancing education at all levels, fostering an environment that nurtures knowledge and academic excellence throughout the state.

    The State Polytechnic and Management Institution have not been overlooked in the government’s development agenda. An allocation of over N500 million has been dedicated to the introduction of new courses at Wudil and Yusuf Maitama Sule University. Simultaneously, Kano Islamic Legal Studies and other institutions have received financial support, totaling over N100 million, for the registration of new courses.

    Governor Yusuf’s administration has extended its commitment beyond the borders, ensuring that 93% of tuition fees for 501 Master’s students studying in India and other foreign countries are settled. Moreover, the government has disbursed four months of upkeep allowances to these students, allowing them to focus on their studies without financial concerns.

    In summary, the Kano State Government, led by Governor Abba Yusuf, is taking comprehensive measures to transform the educational landscape. From the construction of mega primary schools to the renovation of existing institutions and the development of specialized departments, these initiatives underscore a commitment to providing quality education and fostering an environment conducive to learning and academic excellence.
