Dangote Group is offering automatic employment to First Class graduates of Kano University of Science and Technology, Wudil, a statement said.
Seven students of the university graduated with First Class in the last academic year, the statement hinted.
The statement quoted the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Ibrahim Garba, as saying that the Group has also donated N100 million to the university, while at the same time helping to launch an appeal fund to give the school a facelift.
The Vice Chancellor said that the Dangote Group had helped in the provision of electricity in the school, the construction of a 1000-bed space hostel and the establishment of the Dangote Skills Acquisition Centre, among others.
The Dangote’s Regional Representative (North), Alhaji Isa Tata Yusuf, said that the N100 million donation showed the deep concern of the Group’s President, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, about the state of education in Nigeria.
“The N100 million donation to the school is meant to support the effort of President Goodluck Jonathan and the State government in the development of education in the country. Last year the conglomerate spent about a billion in the rehabilitation of some of our universities across the country,” Yusuf said.
