Kano Govt embarks on e-revolution in tertiary institutions

Kano State Acting Governor, Prof Hafiz Abubakar at the weekend stated that the state government has established 13 computer-based registration and examination centers in its tertiary institutions, to meet the standard of JAMB and other e-based empow­erment and education pro­grammes.
Prof Hafiz who is also the Commissioner of Educa­tion, Science and Technol­ogy stated this during the commissioning of projects worth millions of Naira, executed at the Audu Bako College of Agriculture, Dambatta.
According to him, “this has been part of the effort being made under the pres­ent administration to rise up to the challenge of e-rev­olution in the management of education in the country and Audu Bako College of Agriculture, Dambatta is one of the beneficiaries of this laudable initiative, and today we have officially commissioned this center.”
The projects commis­sioned by the acting Gov­ernor included a Lecture Theatre, Twin-Class room Blocks (Food Technol­ogy Department) and New JAMB CBT Center, which has the capacity to accom­modate 250 candidates for test at once, as required by JAMB.
Prof Hafiz further stated that the State was also pro­viding enough funds to its tertiary Schools to enable them to meet the accredita­tion needs of their regula­tory bodies.
“This administration has been making concerted ef­forts to ensure that we give enough funds to our ter­tiary institutions to enable them to meet the accredita­tion needs of their regula­tory bodies,” he added.
He pointed out the ac­creditation results so far conducted for the State in­stitutions of higher learn­ing indicated that its two State-owned Universities and Colleges of Educa­tion had obtained the re­quired grades that enabled them to operate as tertiary schools.
Prof Hafiz, therefore, called on the Institutions to utilise part of their reg­istration charges known as development levy in executing viable projects for their speedy progress, as obtained in Audu Bako College of Agriculture.
He noted that the college has achieved a substantial increase in the number of Students’ enrollment.
