Eight foreign-trained graduates have been denied registration due to their inability to defend their degrees, as revealed on Monday by Ladan Baba, the National Youth Service Corps Coordinator, in Kano state.
This he revealed during the passing out parade of the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Corps members from the three-week orientation course, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
According to Laban, “some of these foreign-trained graduates could not express themselves verbally”.
“More worrisome is the fact that some of them did not undergo any academic pursuits but obtained certificates through illegal means with allegations that some did so in Kano and environs”.
“This will undoubtedly require urgent action by the government and the good people of Kano in collaboration with the dogged security agencies in the state to checkmate this ugly trend that will affect us negatively”.
