The Kano State Government Friday said that the recent batch of 300 medical students proceeding on foreign scholarship would cost the state N2.7 billion.
At a send-off ceremony organised for the students at the Government House in Kano, Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso said his administration was able to embark on the initiative through aggressive internal revenue generation and prudent management of resources.
The governor said the government had spent billions of naira on funding 501 as well as other students on pilot studies abroad as part of the measures to restore Kano’s past glory.
The 300 medical students are proceeding to India, Egypt, Uganda, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia for their training.
100 male and female will study medicine while 100 female will study gynaecology and the remaining 100 are to study pharmaceutical sciences.
