The fate of Kano students currently on scholarship at Elrazi University in Khartoum, Sudan hangs in the balance as the university has stopped the students from attending classes due to the inability of the Kano government to pay their tuition and other fees. And while this decision by the university has been communicated to the Kano government through the state scholarship board in a letter dated October 15, 2018, informing the state of the impending termination of the academic journey of the students in their university, it has met only blind eyes.
These students have been left stranded as the university has banned them from entering the campus nor attending lectures. The affected students have sent several SOS to the state government and the public through social media but respite is yet to come their way.
The danger of this is that if the needful is not done at the right time, their visas might be revoked, endangering their prospects of completing their academic journey in Sudan.
It is not too much to demand that the Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje intervene in this issue and return these students to their classes.
Education either local or foreign is a right of these students and they should not be denied this.
