The Governor made this downward review known during a media parley with pressmen at the Government House,Kaduna on Monday 21st August 2023, he revealed that the review was part of his commitment in keeping his campaign promises to the people of Kaduna “During the electioneering campaigns and on assumption of office on May 29, 2023, we made a solemn commitment to the citizens of Kaduna State to run a people – centred, all-inclusive administration that shall leave no one or any part of Kaduna State behind. In response to the public outcry over the current fees being charged by tertiary institutions in Kaduna State and its effect on school enrolment and retention, I directed Heads of Tertiary Institutions in conjunction with the Ministry of Education to obtain relevant information on the extant fees regime in state owned tertiary institutions.” the Governor said.

This downward review of the extant fees regime aligns with KDSG’s commitment to offer palliatives to cushion the effect of general rising cost of living in the polity, especially in the wake of recent petroleum subsidy removal in Nigeria.

The welfare of the people remains this administration’s topmost priority administration and the Kaduna State Government shall continue to take all measures necessary to ensure access to free and qualitative education for every child in Kaduna State from primary to secondary school; expand access to higher education; enhance Teachers’ Welfare & Teaching Standards: improve School Infrastructure; build ICT competence in our students from basic education level; and intensify investments.

Downward review of State Owned Tertiary Institutions

21st August 2023.



1. I am delighted to welcome you all to this swearing – in ceremony. Today marks a major milestone in the journey of this administration. It is the culmination of painstaking selection and assignment process.

2. Kaduna state is blessed with highly educated, experienced, competent and committed professionals in all fields of endeavour. That you made it to the cabinet is a recognition of your worth and the high premium we place on you. This places on you a burden to deliver on the promises we made to the good people of Kaduna State. We therefore count on you to bring your wealth of experience, skills and competences to bear on your new assignments.

3. You are joining our administration at the most challenging time in the history of our country. We are confronted with serious economic and security challenges. The Federal Government has initiated reforms in the economic sector geared towards securing our future. Creative and innovative steps are being taken to address our economic challenges. These challenges require the taking of extraordinary measures. It is for this reason that the President Bola Tinubu Administration has taken some hard, painful, but necessary decisions like the removal of subsidy on fuel.

4. We are therefore in a period of emergency. This is a time for BELT TIGHTENING. We must take firm measures in Kaduna State to cut down on the cost of governance. We must, as political leaders, show our people the way. We must avoid ostentatious lifestyle. We must not be telling our people to make sacrifices while we are busy living in opulence.

5. We are already matching our words with action. I will continue to use the old cars inherited from the previous administrations in Kaduna State. All Commissioners must also use the old cars. We must collectively make sacrifices. If we lead by example, our people will follow and support us.

6. I signed my first Executive Order on Tuesday, 25th July 2023. It is on “Financial Inclusion in Kaduna State.” We are committed to improving the lives of our citizens, especially the poor, underserved and vulnerable. Majority of our people are excluded from financial services, and by extension access to opportunities from the State and Federal Government. This is unacceptable. We shall develop a credible STATE REGISTER that will capture our people in the rural areas, as well as the urban poor. We shall assist them to open bank accounts to enable them benefit from available opportunities. Our goal is to effectively integrate the poor, underserved and vulnerable in Kaduna State into the financial ecosystem, so that they can benefit from State and Federal Governments social investment programmes, as well as donor agencies interventions. Our people-centered administration will not rest until we positively impact on the lives of the poor, underserved, voiceless and vulnerable in our state.

7. Consequently, our administration will establish a TRUST FUND FOR THE POOR AND VULNERABLE IN KADUNA STATE. The Trust Fund will cater for the needs of the poor, underserved and vulnerable in Kaduna State. A Committee will be set up to develop a Framework for the Establishment of the Trust Fund. I will donate 50% of my salary to the Trust Fund for the next two years. This is part of my sacrifices towards reducing the cost of governance in Kaduna State, and to better the lot of the poor, underserved and vulnerable in our state.

8. As Commissioners, you carry a big burden. The formulation and effective implementation of policies and programmes of government rests on your shoulders. You must adopt the inclusive approach to leadership. You must build a team. Everybody is important. Don’t be a lone ranger. That is a recipe for failure. I charge you all to get down to work immediately. You are expected to deliver on the 7 Point Agenda of our administration, namely: Safety and Security, Upgrade of Infrastructure, Strengthening Institutions, Trade and Investment, Agriculture, Investing in Human Capital, and Nurturing Citizens Engagement. The central focus of our administration is however the Transformation of the Rural Areas. We want to revitalize the economies of the rural areas through massive infrastructural development.

9. As Honourable Commissioners, our citizens rightly expect a lot from you. Excuses for lacklustre performance will NOT be accepted. In the service of our dear state, we must put personal friendship aside. We shall strictly assess you based on performance indicators. Anyone that fails to measure up will be shown the way out. However, be rest assured that I will give you the support and tools you require to perform optimally. I encourage you all to see yourselves as part of the SUSTAIN AGENDA TEAM. We work together and succeed together. It is not about personal glory. It is about service to the people.


You have been assigned the following portfolios:

1. Sule Shuaibu – Attorney General/Commissioner for Justice

2. Shizzer Nasara Joy Bada – Finance

3. Prof. Muhammad Sani Bello – Education

4. Umma Kaltume Ahmed – Health

5. Sadiq Mamman Lagos – Local Government

6. Aminu Abdullahi Shagali – Housing and Urban Development

7. Salisu Rabi – Human Services and Social Development

8. Prof. Benjamin Kumai Gugong – Sports Development

9. Ibrahim Hamza – Public Works and Infrastructure

10. Mukhtar Ahmed – Planning and Budget Commission

11. Abubakar Buba – Environment & Natural Resources

12. Murtala Mohammed Dabo – Agriculture

13. Patience Fakai – Business Innovation & Technology

14. Auwal Musa Shugaba – Internal Security and Home Affairs

10. I congratulate you for accepting to be part of the arduous journey of making Kaduna State the Model of Development in Nigeria. And, as in every journey, the end is more important than the beginning. I wish you God’s guidance. God bless you all.
