National Universities Commission (NUC) has denounced the list of fake Professors in some Nigerian Universities being circulated in the media which reporting was ascribed to a Lagos-based electronic media as untrue and could not have emanated from the apex regulatory educational body without due consultation with their accredited Universities.
Deputy Executive Secretary , Academic Directorate, Dr. Noel Abiodun Saliu, said that such information should be taken as mischievous and unfounded; and could not have emanated from the National Universities Commission.
He said such publication should be taken as the handiwork of mischief makers who 7 out to destroy the hard-earned reputation of those prestigious institutions whose names were mentioned and also to undermine the work of the apex regulatory educational agency.
Statement by the Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs Directorate, Redeemer’s University, Ede, Osun State, Adetunji Adeleye, rejected, denounced and dissociated the university from such abominable publication.
He noted that the persons whose names were listed as professors in Redeemer’s University “are NOT our staff and have never worked in Redeemer’s University at any point in time, in ANY capacity whatsoever”.
Adeleye said, “these professor are not known to us and anyone who deals with them as individuals or a group, does so at his or her own risk.
He warned the general to be wary of fake news and advised them to always cross check the fact from the National Universities Commission which is the apex regulatory educational body that oversees universities in Nigeria.
