I will use this medium to appreciate Hon. Sulaiman Abdurrahaman Kawu Sumaila OFR for initiating another private university in Sumaila his hometown.
Establishing Al-Istiqama University is indeed a welcome development to the people of kano and Northern Nigeria, it is a very good investment to the educational sector.
If granted license by the National University Commission, Al-Istiqama will be the second private University in Kano after Skyline University.
I heard that the benevolent and philanthropist Dr Adamu Abubakar Gwarzo(Founder of Maryam Abacha American University of Niger) is building another private University in Kano but we still need more of this for the development of education in Northern Nigeria so that our brothers and sisters will not be travelling to Cotonou to smuggle Tokumbo Degree.
We pray to God Almighty to give Kawu Sumaila wisdom and support that will give him the strength of serving his people more.
Other Northern leaders should emulate Sumaila for the wonderful gesture.
