The Kaduna State Ministry of Education has said that its attention has been drawn to a fake news report in circulation, stating that the Kaduna State Government has renamed the Kaduna State University (KASU) to MAGAJIN GARI SAMBO UNIVERSITY.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Phoebe Sukai Yayi, dated February 6, 2021.
“The purported news attributed to the Commissioner of Education has it that the plan to rename the University followed the requests made by over 77 registered Community Development Associations across the State.
“The Ministry of Education, the Kaduna State House of Assembly, the Secretary to the State Government, the Registrar of KASU and the University management all attributed to the news are disassociating themselves from the fake report and wish to inform the public that the Commissioner never made any disclosure of such kind to anyone as the State has no plan to rename the University for now.Hence, the Ministry is warning those behind this mischievous misinformation to desist from spreading such false report or be prepared to face the wrath of the law,” it said.
