Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has received the report of a committee set up by the state government to investigate the 12th May students’ unrest at the Shehu Shagari College of Education (SSCOE).

This is contained in a statement signed on Tuesday by Muhammad Bello, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Governor.

The statement added that the governor said having received the recommendation of the committee and heard from several stakeholders and leaders in the state on the need for the college to reopen, his administration will look into the possibility of doing so.

He directed the Governing Council of the SSCOE to convene a meeting with a view to reopening the college soonest.

Tambuwal, in the statement, assured the people of the state that, the government will implement the recommendations of the committee, reiterating his belief that doing so will prevent future reoccurrence not only in the affected college but in all tertiary institutions in the state.
