The Kwara state government says it will offer free transportation for tertiary students of the state, who are schooling in the north.

In a statement on Tuesday by Mansurat Amuda-Kannike, the press secretary at the Kwara ministry of tertiary education, interested students are expected to appear for documentation on Saturday, which is same as the departure date.

ASUU recently suspended its eight months of industrial action after the court of appeal sitting in Abuja ordered the union to call off the strike.

Amuda-Kannike said the state government is providing the free ride to ease the burden on the students and their guardians.


“As a demonstration of its favourable disposition to the plight of Students, the Kwara State Government, under the amiable leadership of Mall. Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq has offered free transportation to all interested Students of Tertiary Institutions in the Northern axis of the country on resumption for academic activities,” the statement reads.

“The Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Dr Alabi Afees Abolore, disclosed this at a meeting in Ilorin yesterday.

“Dr Abolore said the Mallam Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq-led Administration is extending the dividends of democracy to Kwara State Students in tertiary institutions across the country.


“He explained that concerned Students travelling to the North are expected to appear for brief documentation on the same day of their departure within the premises of the ministry of Tertiary Education, along Offa Road, GRA, Ilorin on Saturday 29th October 2022 by 6:30 am.”
