Legit.ng gathers that Baba stated this while declaring closed the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream II orientation course for corps members, at the NYSC permanent orientation camp, Kusalla, Karaye local government area on Monday, September 9.
He said: “The most 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 require urgent action by the government and good people of Kano in collaboration with the security agencies in the state to checkmate this ugly trend that will affect us negatively.”
Baba added that due to their inability to defend their degrees as foreign-trained, a good number of the rejected corps members were blocked online, following physical verification of their results.
He further disclosed that eight members were also refused registration due to incomplete and inconsistent documents, as most of them could not express themselves.

Shuaibu alleged that some university administrators enrolled unqualified Nigerians for mobilisation into the scheme.
