Over 24 final year students of Bayero University (BUK) Kano have been expelled for falsification of their entry qualifications.

The spokesperson for the university, Malam Lamara Garba made this known in a statement in Kano Saturday, saying their expulsion was approved by the Senate of the University at its 374th meeting on Wednesday, July 31, 2019.

It stated that six others were withdrawn for presenting fake results from their institutions while another student was withdrawn for presenting a cancelled NECO result.

According to the statement, 18 students would be re-invited to appear before the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities, to give them fair hearing.

The statement added that the Director, Examinations, Admissions and Records (DEAR), Amina Umar-Abdullahi, had explained that their expulsion followed the adoption of the report submitted by the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities.

It further stated that the action of the expelled students contravened category 3.6 and 3.8(a) of the DEAR.

It explained that the university would continue to screen the credentials of all students to ensure that they meet all criteria for admission.

Meanwhile, the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), has given five- year full accreditation to the university’s degree programmes in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering.
