Kebbi State Government has indicated willingness to provide the necessary security to the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, to pave way for the recommencement of academic activities in the school.

The college was deserted by teachers and students since bandits attacked the institution and abducted some students more than two years ago but all the captives were subsequently released.

Governor Nasir Idris of Kebbi State gave the assurance that he would facilitate the admission of new students this academic session and also gave approval for the provision of land for the take-off of the Federal College of Education, Technical, approved for Yauri by the Federal Government.

The governor  stated this when he received the Emir of Yauri, Dr. Muhammadu Zayyanu Abdullahi who paid him solidarity visit at the Government House, Birnin Kebbi, this Monday.

Governor Nasir Idris, Kauran Gwandu who affirmed commitment to the restoration of studies in the school was also emphatic that his administration would not compromise on security matters nor allow the Federal Government College, Birnin-Yauri to die because of the attack by bandits.

Comrade, Dr. Nasir Idris pledged to ensure even appointment of public officers to reflect every section of Kebbi state, adding that seeming loophole of appointment unfavourable to Yauri Emirate would be rectified.

He commended the Emir and people of the Emirate for giving him the desired support in the last gubernatorial elections which consolidated his victory at the polls.

The governor thanked Dr. Zayyanu Abdullahi for the visit, describing the monarch as a great leader who has provided excellent leadership of prosperity to his people.
