Bayero University Kano (BUK) has expelled 81 students after being found guilty of examination malpractices, while 14 other offenders were rusticated for one academic session in compliance with the rules and regulations of the institution, the varsity’s spokesman Malam Mustapha Zahraddeen said in a statement today.
Meanwhile BUK on Thursday matriculated over 5,000 students for the 2012/2013 academic session.
Speaking during the ceremony which was held at the new campus of the varsity, the Vice Chancellor Professor Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, said that the institution received a total of 26,851 candidates who applied through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), but only 5667 of the applicants were successful.
While congratulating the new students, Rasheed advised them to shun acts of cultism, examination malpractice and indiscipline.
“By taking this oath today, you have now become bona-fide students of Bayero University, Kano and you should therefore be well behaved so as to adapt into our citadel of learning.
“You should be grateful to efforts being made by the university to make you comfortable and therefore shun all activities that would misguide you to go against the system”, he said.
