BUK lecturers, students to support indigent students

Lecturers at Bayero University, Kano (BUK) and Student Union Government (SUG) leaders are reportedly raising money to support needy students.
The students and lecturers have come together to support the less privileged students in their school.
The ASUU members in the university also promised to deduct N100 from their basic salary to help students who can’t pay school fees.
According to reports, the university SUG had earlier announced that it had set up the SUG Trust Fund to help the less privileged students pay tuition and hostel fees.
In order to raise the fund, a sum of N300 was added to registration fees out of which N200 would be remitted to the fund and N100 to SUG purse, it was reported.
Also, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), BUK chapter, has promised to deduct N100 from the basic salary of its members to support indeigent students.
The SUG president, Comrade Khalid Sanusi said, “We initiated the idea to help the less privileged students in the university, and it successfully started working in the 2018/2019 academic session and there must be a certain scrutiny before releasing money to a student.
‘’A student would first write a request letter to the Dean Students Affairs of the university, then the level coordinator and all the presidents of associations of each department must be involved in making sure that the student really deserved to be supported financially’’.
Sanusi added that the student union leaders were waiting for the university management to set up a committee that would control the fund as the fund was not in the safe of SUG.
