The Management of the National Institute for Hospitality and Tourism (NIHOTOUR) has ordered the immediate closure of the Bagauda Campus of the institute as a preemptive move over security threat in northern Nigeria.

This, according to a statement on NIHOTOUR website NIHOTOUR.gov.ng, comes on the heels of the directive from the Kano State Government to close the Government Technical College, Bagauda, which is in close proximity to the Kano Zonal Campus of the NIHOTOUR on concerns over security.

In a statement by the Coordinator of the Zonal Campus, Dr. Abba Shehu on the order of the Director General of the Institute, Alhaji Nura Sani Kangiwa, closure of the Campus became imperative in view of security reports that put the Bagauda axis on security danger list of possible attack by insurgents.

The directive further ordered students to vacate premises of the campus and also staff of the Institute to stay off the campus in the interest of the protection of lives of the students, staff and all community members of the Institute at Bagauda.

However, the Mini Campus of the Institute located at the Civic Centre Road in the Kano metropolis, where the IATA Course Programs are offered will remain operational, and therefore staff and students of the Mini Campus are to go on with their normal academic activities unhindered.

While the Director General expressed his displeasure at the decision to close the Bagauda Campus of the Institute, he said this has become necessary ‘because we have the responsibility to protect the lives of our staff and students’ he noted.
