The Sokoto State University on Thursday, matriculated no fewer than 2,219 fresh students for the 2019/2020 academic session.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sani Dangoggo, while congratulating the newly admitted students urged them to take their academics seriously and shun all social vices.


According to him, getting admission into the university is not an easy task, especially taking into consideration the number of candidates who applied to study various programmes being offered by the institution.

“It may interest you to note that 6,718 candidates sought admission into this universiy in the current session, out of which only 2,219 were lucky to be admitted.
