The Bayero University Kano (BUK), on Friday, expelled twenty-four final year students from the institution over fake entry qualifications.
Malam Lamara Garba, spokesperson of the university, made this known in a statement on Friday in Kano, saying that the expulsion was approved by the Senate of the university at its 374th meeting which was held on the 31st of July, 2019.
It added that six others were withdrawn for presenting fake results from the institution while another student was withdrawn for presenting a cancelled NECO result.
The statement, however, said eighteen students would be re-invited to appear before the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities, to give them a fair hearing.
The statement said that Amina Umar-Abdullahi, Director, Examinations, Admissions and Records (DEAR) of the institution had explained that their expulsion followed the adoption of the report submitted by the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities, adding that the action of the expelled students contravened category 3.6 and 3.8(a) of the DEAR.
Meanwhile, the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria has given five years full accreditation to the university’s degree programmes in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering.
