On Friday, the Federal  University of Kashere (FUK) enrolled 3,448 new students into the Agriculture, Science, Humanities/Management and Social Science, Education, and Science faculties for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Umaru Pate, stated at the matriculation ceremony that there were 2,319 males and 1,129 females among the matriculating students.

He stated that the current undergraduate enrollment was over 9,000 students, which did not include pupils enrolled to the institution's one-year remedial program.

The Vice-Chancellor who counseled the students to avoid drugs and cultism, as well as gender-based violence and rape said that

“As young people who represent the future of Nigeria, respect our multicultural and plural nature.

“Always appreciate our diversity and tolerate the differences and heterogeneities in our country, which were aptly manifested on our campus,” he added.

According to Prof. Pate, the university has received authorization from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria to begin the one-year Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) advanced level (A level) program in August.

The remedial and IJMB programs, he claims, are pre-degree arrangements meant to provide qualifying students with rigorous coaching over the course of a year in order to prepare them for the UMTE and direct entry admissions into FUK and other Nigerian universities.
