The palliative distribution was chaired by the provost of the College Alhaji Muhammad Degereji at the College premises.
Speaking after the flagging off of the food palliative distribution to the students, the provost Alhaji Muhammad Degereji noted that the removal of fuel subsidy has negatively affected many lives, which informed the decision of the college to initiate students support program, to help the students have good atmosphere of learning especially as they prepare for the examinations.
