Sa’adatu Rimi University Offers Free Education to Physically Challenged Students

Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Yahaya Bunkure revealed that the school is providing physically challenged students with free education.

This was accurate, given that he had previously stated that the institution had accessed N3 billion in intervention funds from the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) for the institution’s infrastructure development.

Prof. Bunkure revealed this while speaking with the NUJ leadership of Kano State Correspondents’ Chapel during their courtesy visit to his office.

He further stated that physically challenged students do not pay any tuition or registration fees when they enroll in the university.

I want to let you know that the education system at Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education is partially free.

“All students at this institution, both native and non-native, are not charged a tuition fee, the speaker declared.

He claimed that people with physical disabilities were entitled to free education according to the policy former governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso started.

Prof. Bunkure also stated that the institution’s registration fee is among the lowest in the nation:

In our university, the NCE registration fee is N15,200, whereas degree programs cost between N23,000 and N27,000.

“Our tuition will be reasonably priced compared to what is offered in federal universities, ours will be significantly less.

The university would be prepared to accept students who leave other universities due to prohibitive registration and tuition costs, but would be constrained by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) admission limit.

While praising and thanking the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETfund) for its ongoing assistance in the funding and expansion of the institution

He claims that the university has accessed about N3 billion in intervention funds from TETfund during his time as Vice Chancellor.

According to him, the TETfund intervention fund was used, among other things, to build office and housing facilities that were suitable for academic and non-academic staff, build 10 different types of lecture halls, outfit laboratories with the necessary equipment, build a N280 million building for early grade reading to serve colleges of education in the North-West, and train and retrain lecturers.
