A whooping sum of N130million is to be spent by the Kano State Government for the payment of the National Examination Council (NECO), fees for more than 10,000 indigent students in the state who failed the recent qualifying examination.

This was announced by the State’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Alhaji Murtala Sule Garo, shortly after a meeting with the governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Murtala Garo said the governor directed that 200 indigent students should be selected from the 36 rural local governments each and 400 from the eight metropolitan local government each.

“The governor directed that the over 10,000 students to be selected as beneficiaries must be indigents who cannot afford to pay for the examination,” Murtala Garo said.

The commissioner added that the chairmen of the local government are expected to constitute a committee to ensure that only indigent students are selected to benefit from the gesture.
