The Katsina State Governor Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari has directed the management of the Katsina State Institute of Technology and Management, KSITM to relocate to their permanent site with immediate effect.
The Governor made this assertion when he led the institute’s first ever maiden matriculation of about 136 students yesterday, the 7th of August, 2017.
The Governor also urged the students to strive for themselves, utilise positive opportunities that comes their way positively instead of waiting for help to come from someone. According to him, “On holidays get something doing. Sell sugarcane, maybe you need only N1,000 to start a business of sugarcane selling or Dates (Dabino) or Tiger nuts (Aya) selling.
Earlier, the rector of the institution, Dr. Babangida Abubakar Albaba said the institute is fashion out to produce prosperous, self-reliant, innovative and entrepreneurial individuals.
“Here at KSITM, we will aid you to unlock your potentials and make you find your true self. The institute is designed to give you a smooth transition from the academic world into the larger society. You will become innovators and entrepreneurs after the completion of your courses of specialisation.
“You are therefore expected to utilise all the facilities made available to you such as E-library and other online resource materials provided by the institute,” Albaba said. Meanwhile, the institute matriculated the 136 students in various courses of Networking and System Security (49 students), Software Engineering (41 students) and Banking Operations (46 students).
