Emir of Kano tasks FG on quality of tertiary education

11 May 2015, 17:37

Kano - The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II has urged the Federal Government to pay priority attention to the quality of education acquired by the Nigerian youths.

He made the call at the formal presentation of a letter of appointment to him as the new Chancellor of the University of Benin on Monday in Kano.

It is reported that the Minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekaurau presented the letter to the Emir at his Palace.

Sanusi stressed the need for the government to ensure that quality education is given to the youth to enable them to contribute their quota towards the development of the country.

"Education should be given the priority attention, it deserves to empower the youth to enable them to be self-reliant and contribute towards the development of the country.

"We should not mind the number of universities but the quality of education the universities give to our youth to make them self reliant.’’

Sanusi, who commended the Federal Government for finding him worthy of the appointment, promised to contribute his quota towards the development of the university.

Earlier, the Minister of Education said the appointment of Emir Sanusi followed the recent directive by President Goodluck to the ministry to review the appointment of chancellors of universities.

"On the recommendation of my humble self, President Goodluck Jonathan approved your appointment as the new Chancellor of the University of Benin.

"This appointment is an honour done to Kano, myself and the Emir who is the father of all of us.''
