About 100 fake professors have been uncovered by the National Universities Commission (NUC) says the Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed.

Prof Rasheed said that about 100 fake professors’ details were posted on the NUC website and the commission had to send the names to the various universities for verification. This is contained a recent bulletin of NUC.

He disclosed this at the 2019 retreats for Vice-Chancellors and thanked them for their cooperation with the NUC Strategy Advisory Committee (STRADVCOM) which had published, among other things, directory of full professors in the Nigeria University System (NUS); statistical Digest of the NUS 2017-2018; refinement and modernisation of instruments for accreditation of undergraduate, postgraduate, part-time, affiliate, open and distance learning programmes and institutional as well as state of university education in Nigeria 2017- 2018.

The NUC boss said that the updated version of those documents would be published by December 2019 and that professors in their respective universities uploaded their curricula vitae on the website which was used in the compilation of the directory of full professors in the NUS and had helped in identifying fake professors in the system.

He encouraged the vice-chancellors to have accurate statistics of staff, students and other components in their respective universities off-hand. He applauded them for ensuring that institutions, as he also cautioned them to be mindful while signing certificates of students especially those of affiliate institutions under their purview.

Rasheed stressed that the fight against fake professors was a collective responsibility.

The executive secretary informed the Vice-Chancellors of a recent meeting held with the Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) where the latter complained that some Corp members’ degree certificates purportedly obtained from some prestigious universities were questionable.
