NANS Calls Doctorate Degree On Buhari Fraudulent, Disgraceful

The Honorary Doctorate Degree conferred on President Muhammadu Buhari by the Kaduna State University (KASU) is fraudulent and disgraceful – National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

It is quite unfortunate that at a time we are clamoring for a overhaul and repositioning of our educational sector, our leaders are doing the opposite by their actions and inaction.
The show of shame that took place in Kaduna State University (KASU) on 12 December, 2015, is capable of making foreign Universities and corporate organizations to further undermine and disregard degrees obtained from Nigerian schools.
We expect our leaders to be our role models by living exemplary life. How can one explain that, President
Muhammadu Buhari who has not even cleared the air on his certificate saga, still went ahead to accept a fraudulent
honorary degree from a university that is not authorized by National Universities Commission (NUC) to do so.
We make bold to state that, the honorary doctorate degree conferred on President Buhari is illegal and non sequitur because;
1. KASU is not among the 22 universities accredited by NUC
to award honorary degree.
2. KASU was established 10 years ago, and has never graduated a PhD student.
3. Section 2.0 subsection (a) of the Council of VCs Keffi declaration 2012, prohibits the award of honorary degrees to persons holding political offices.
We therefore demand the following:
1. That President Muhammadu Buhari should honorably relinquish the fraudulent degree.
2. That NUC should with immediate effect sanction KASU for contravening its rules and regulations.
3. That Academic Staff Of Universities (ASUU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) should
sanction the entire management team of KASU for making a mockery of Nigerian universities.
4. That President Buhari should desist from procuring fraudulent degrees and focus on governance because, our
country is faced with terrorism, economic hardship, religious crises and political tension.
Signed:
Comrade Tijani Usman
President, National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS)
