The Bayero University Kano (BUK) says it will confer honourary doctorate degrees on the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Barau Jibrin and the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwumi Adesina, in recognition of their contributions to education and youth development.

The institution has slated the award ceremony for Saturday, March 2, 2024, during the grand finale of its 38th convocation at its New Campus, Gwarzo Road, Kano.

The vice-chancellor of the university, Professor Sagir Adamu Abbas, in a letter to the Deputy President of the Senate, said both the Senate and the university’s management have approved the award.

“Sir, your nomination for the coveted award is based on your great passion for education and youth development, among others. You have impacted positively on the lives of the people in your constituency and beyond in terms of the provision of scholarships, health-related projects and many agricultural and empowerment programmes across the state.

“At the Senate, you succeeded in sponsoring 56 bills between 2015 and 2023. You have been recognized as the best Northern Senator of the Year, 2017 by the Senate Press Corps due to your immense contributions to national development,” he said.
