Bayero University Kano (BUK) has expelled 24 mostly final year students for falsifying their entry qualifications.
KANO TODAY reports that their expulsion was approved by the university senate at its 374th meeting held on Wednesday July 31, 2019.
A statement signed by the Director, examinations, admissions and records (DEAR), Amina Umar Abdullahi, said the students were expelled following a report submitted by the senate committee on entry qualification irregularities.
Mrs Abdullahi stated that six other students who had been earlier withdrawn due to poor academic performance or failure to write exams were also found to have presented fake results.
Another student of BSc Mass Communication was also withdrawn for presenting a cancelled NECO result, the statement added.
A breakdown of the expelled students indicates that Faculty of Education had the highest figure of 10, followed by the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences with nine.
The Faculties of Law, Agriculture, Science, Engineering and Arts and Islamic Studies had one student each.
