Bayero University, Kano (BUK), has introduced On-campus Student’s Job Scheme.
BUK’s deputy registrar, Lamara Garba, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Kano.
The university’s vice-chancellor, Sagir Abbas, who launched the scheme distributing engagement letters to 125 students, said the scheme would improve students’ welfare.
The VC explained that the students would be assigned various tasks, including monitoring and supervision of the university’s facilities, cleanliness, and menial jobs.
Mr Garba quoted the VC as saying, “Each student will get N15,000 monthly, subject to being cleared by his/her supervisor, after meeting the necessary requirements.”
The vice-chancellor urged the students to protect the university.
He also disclosed plans underway to establish Student’s Skills Acquisition Centre, noting that it will train students on entrepreneurial skills when fully operational.
“The centre which will be free of charge to any interested student will enable students to learn some trade like tailoring, make-up, beauty salon and others. That will go a long way in helping the students to be self-reliant, particularly after graduation,” he said.
