The Kaduna State Government has abolished payment of fees for admission forms and processes by students seeking admission into state owned tertiary institutions.

In a statement issued at the end of the State Executive Council meeting on Tuesday, the State Commissioner for Education, Dr. Shehu Adamu, said that all state government owned tertiary institutions had been directed to comply with the directive.

The commissioner said: “Under no condition henceforth should scratch cards be sold to admission-seekers for access to school portals or admission processing.”

The commissioner, who explained that the executive council took the decision considering the plight of students, warned that admission into higher institutions should not be treated as a revenue source.

The statement also directed all non-teaching occupants of public school quarters to vacate the premises within 90 days.

It equally informed teachers, who have been transferred to other schools, to vacate their former quarters within six months. (Channels TV)
