The National Council of Pharmacists cancelled the ‘Pharmacy Technician programme’ course previously accredited to be studied in the School of Health Technology, Kano for alleged violation of regulations.
The development will affect 50 final year students of the institution who may have wasted their academic years.
The students who were said to have written their final examinations at the Institution received the news recently.
The Pharmacists Council of Nigeria had initially accredited the Course for the school but as part of its regulations was expected to examine the programme after three years to ascertain if regulations were fully adhered to, after which it would be reaccredited for the Institution.
However, the Kano School of Health Technology was alleged to have violated some regulations of the Course of study, attracting sanction from the Council.
The Council had directed that students studying the Course be transferred to either Katsina or Jigawa State to write their final examinations.
When contacted, the School Principal, Bello Dalhatu said he could not speak to the press and directed newsmen to the Ministry of Education.
