The Vice Chancellor of Umaru Musa Yar’Adua University, (UMYU), Katsina, Prof. Sanusi Mamman, has revealed that an ex-UMYU student  who was expelled from the University due to poor academic performance, re-emerged nine months later, with a First Class Degree Certificate, which he obtained  from a University in a neighbouring African country and presented himself at UMYU for employment.

“I was shocked because when we made a fact check, the boy was expelled from here due to poor academic performance. But he went to another University and in nine months he came back with first class degree and he came to UMYU looking for a job”, he stressed

The Vice Chancellor who advised parents to encourage their wards to seek knowledge and not certificates, decried the proliferation of quack universities which mainly issue their certificates to interested candidates on cash and carry basis.

He lamented that this trend has tended to increase the number of fake certificates in circulation and killing real knowledge.

Prof. Mamman who vowed that UMYU will continue to have zero tolerance for the employment of quack graduates from what he described as mushroom Universities, noted that UMYU was established with the mandate to emerge as one of the best universities in the country with its graduates groomed to defend their certificates anywhere and under all circumstances.

He said it’s a pity that because of greed and love for money, people of questionable characters have resorted to establishing quack Universities only for the sake of making money, not Scholarship. They dole out their certificates to the highest bidders instead of awarding degrees based on merit and performance of students.

Mamman who listed some of his achievements within the first 100 days he has been in office said that, “I have purchased a molecular laboratory for the test of different diseases including COVID-19.”

According to him, “I am making efforts to solve portable water scarcity problems in the school and there is an accommodation project in which we are building thirty houses for a start as well as a lot of renovations of existing facilities”, adding that, “There is also the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Teaching Hospital and we have purchased vehicles for Deans of faculties and many more in my first 100 days in office”, he said.
