Body urges El-Rufai to reopen Kafanchan campus
The umbrella body of Southern Kaduna indigenes, Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) have condemned the continuous closure of Kafanchan Campus of the Kaduna State University (KASU) by the State Government, despite the return of peace to the area.
According to the group, the campus was closed on 19th December, 2016, and since then, the students have been idle. The group lamented that “while they are redundant, their colleagues in the Kaduna Campus have been attending classes and by implication, attaining a comparative advantage”.
A statement issued by SOKAPU and signed by its National Public Relations Officer, Mr. Yakubu Kuzamani explained that, “SOKAPU has consistently called for the reopening of the Kafanchan campus but Governor Nasir El-rufai has deliberately refused to heed to our call or those of other well-meaning Nigerians. In an ironic twist, the Governor has enrolled at the University – Merit in the Netherlands as a part-time PhD student. Impressive by any standards.”
“The Governor, while not only satisfied with looking the other way while we are being killed is strangulating our economic development through a punitive curfew that has been on since December 2016, has now shown that he is also working hard to cripple us
