Nigeria: 236 Sokoto Students Graduate From Ugandan Varsity

Sokoto — A total of 236 Sokoto students who bagged various degrees at the Islamic University, Kampala, Uganda have graduated, just as the state government says it has purchased JAMB forms worth N44m for 1,000 of its students seeking admission into various tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Special Adviser on Media, Malam Imam Imam said Governor Aminu Tambuwal disclosed this at the graduation ceremony of the 236 Sokoto students in Kampala, Uganda,

He said the governor ýpromised that his administration would continue to make education number one priority, and that he gave assurance that Sokoto indigenes who seek to further their studies outside the country would have government sponsorship. Imam said Tambuwal also pledged state government's support to exceptional students, and that

"in addition to the payment of the forms, the state government will take over the four Computer Based Examination Centres (CBT) under construction by the Federal Government under the defunct SURE-P intervention programme."

The four centres, located in Sokoto, Gwadabawa, Wamakko and Tambuwal local government areas, will have a combined capacity for 1,400 computers, and are expected to be put to use during the 2016 nationwide JAMB examination.
