The enrollment of 8000 students who benefited from Sokoto government’s free tertiary institutions’ admission forms began today in Sokoto, the state capital.

The enrolment, which got underway at the Sokoto North local government secretariat, saw a huge turn out of both male and female students seeking to further their education.

The exercise will hold in four other centres across the state.

Speaking with reporters at the point of registration, one of the beneficiaries, Aisha Ibrahim, said she wants to read Laboratory Technology in the University and will study hard to make the grades.
