The Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has blamed his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for failing to pay tuition of overseas students to the tune of N3billion.
The governor's revelation is coming following a cold war between the former political associates.
According to a report by Vanguard, Ganduje made the revelation when he hosted the leadership of Kano students abroad under the aegis of General Association of Northern Nigeria Students, based in Egypt.
'For one year, Kwankwaso did not pay a single kobo as tuition fee for our students studying abroad. Right now, Kano State government owes those students N3 billion, and painfully, our revenue is dwindling and we would be cautious in handling the situation,' Ganduje revealed.
Speaking further, 'For whatever reasons, the Kwankwaso administration distorted the scholarship programme I’ve decided to let the cat out of the bag so that, as educated people, you would understand where your problems lies.'
