Law students request Gov. Lawal intervention over colleagues’ registration fees

The Zamfara Indigene 2023–2024 Forum of the Nigerian Law School has thanked the Governor for his rescue effort and requested immediate action from him to settle the registration fees of its 25 members at the law school.

The request was included in a statement that the Forum’s Chairman, Comrade Mubasshir Umar Gusau, and Secretary, Mahmud Sani-Kaura, jointly signed on Friday in Gusau.

The statement claims that over 90% of Zamfara natives who studied laws, graduated from different universities, and were accepted into the Nigeria Law School are unable to pay the registration fees because of financial hardships.

“The admission to law school comes once in a year and admission is secured before fees is paid which is our burden.

“Traditionally due to exorbitant school fees of the Nigerian Law School, state governments especially in the Northern Nigeria pay the registration, mobility and logistics for their indigenes law students qualified and admitted in the Law School.

“We are appealing for urgent intervention of our kind-hearted state government under Gov Dauda Lawal,” the statement said.

“We are appealing to government to consider our request as the deadline for the registration is approaching.

“The Forum appreciate rescue mission policy of Gov Dauda Lawal under which he declared emergency to education sector of the state,” the statement added.
