A total of twenty-four (24) students of Bayero University, Kano, mostly in their final year of study were expelled from the University for falsification of their entry qualifications.
Their expulsion was approved by the Senate of the University at its 374th meeting held on Wednesday, 31st July, 2019.
Equally, six (6) others were withdrawn from the University for allegedly presenting fake results from their institutions while another student of B. Sc Mass Communication was withdrawn for presenting a cancelled NECO result. However, prior to their appearance before the Committee, the statement said the six students had been earlier withdrawn on poor academic performance and/or absence throughout the examinations, without cogent reasons.
A statement signed by the Director, Examinations, Admissions and Records (DEAR), Amina Umar Abdullahi, said their expulsion followed a report submitted by the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities and deliberated upon.
It categorically stated that the action of the expelled students contravenes category 3.6 and 3.8(a) respectively of the General Examinations and Academic Regulations (GEAR).
In the same vein, other eighteen students would be re-invited to appear before the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities for fair hearing, the statement added.
A breakdown of the expelled students indicates that Faculty of Education had the highest figure of 10 and was followed by the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences with 9. The Faculties of Law, Agriculture, Science, Engineering and Arts and Islamic Studies had one candidate each.
The Committee, however, advised the management of the university to thoroughly check subsequent admissions so as not to re-admit the expelled students into the University with such fake results.
