Yesterday, the House of Representatives urged the Federal government to prevail on tertiary institutions in the region to accept returnee students from Sudan to enable them to complete their studies.
Sada Soli’s call came after a discussion of a national issue of great importance. Soli recalled that a war in Sudan broke out on April 15, 2023, resulting in the repatriation of students from Sudan’s various learning fields.
“There is no end to the crisis,” he said, leaving the state of confusion over how to proceed with their various educational programs.
“The Federal government must respond quickly by integrating students into tertiary institutions in the region to ensure that they can continue with their various educational activities,” the government says.
“While some tertiary institutions have shown their willingness to accept disadvantaged students, the federal government’s approval is required.
“The House is cognizant of the need for the Federal Government to consider the quota systems imposed on certain courses such as law and medicine and waive them for the students concerned to enable them to continue with their programs pending the resolution of the Sudan crisis.”
