The university’s vice chancellor said the gesture was part of his promise shortly after he came into office.

Twenty-three students of the Yobe University, Damaturu, living with disabilities, have been granted registration fee waiver by Professor Mala Daura, the Vice Chancellor of the institution.

Spokeswoman of the university, Uwani Mamudo, announced this via a statement in Damaturu on Friday.

Mr Daura said the support was in fulfilment of the promise he made to the students shortly after he became the vice chancellor of the university.

The vice chancellor said management will ensure that students with special needs enjoy all available privileges to pursue their career choices.

Mr Daura directed the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Dr Mohammad Lawan, to liaise with Sub Dean, Faculty of Arts and Education, Dr Sheriff Garba to ensure that challenges peculiar to the students were properly addressed.

He charged the students to encourage other persons living with disabilities to seek knowledge to live a good life, saying “ there is ability in every disability.”

Responding, the leader of the group, Mamman Salisu, appreciated Mr Daura for creating a conducive atmosphere of learning for students living with disabilities in the institution.
