Jigawa to establish varsity

 Dutse — The Jigawa Government has set up a technical committee on  the establishment of a university.
Commissioner for Information, Youths and Sports, Alhaji Aminu Mohammed, announced this yesterday after the State Executive Council meeting in Dutse.

Mohammed told newsmen that the committee, headed by Prof. Munzali Jibril, would work out modalities on how to implement the university project.

He said the need for a university was contained in a memo presented by the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Haruna Wakili.
Wakili had said the university was a priority project of  the state government, adding that the state produces qualified candidates yearly who do not gain admission into universities because of the few institutions available.

Wakili said Jigawa was one of two states that had no state or federal university.
