Nigerian Universities Harbour 100 Fake Professors, Says NUC

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has uncovered about 100 fake professors in some of the nation’s universities.
The NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, said in the November edition of the commission’s bulletin, obtained yesterday, that the commission had published the details of the fake professors on its website and also sent the names to the various universities for verification.
The bulletin quoted Rasheed as saying this at the 2019 retreat for vice-chancellors by the NUC Strategy Advisory Committee.
He said: “The updated version of those documents will be published by December 2019 and professors in their respective universities uploaded their CV on the website, which was used in the compilation of the directory. About 100 fake professors also uploaded their details but we detected them.
“This measure helped in identifying fake professors in the system. The fight against fake professors is a collective responsibility.”
Rasheed also told the vice chancellors of a recent meeting held with the Director General, National Youth Service Corps, (NYSC), Brig-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, where the latter complained that some corps members’ degree certificates purportedly obtained from some prestigious universities were questionable.
The NUC boss told the VCs to check the excesses of their affiliated institutions, noting that universities must spearhead the fight against academic corruption, which must be tackled by all stakeholders.
The bulletin stated that the committee published a directory of full professors in the Nigerian university system, statistical digest of the NUS 2017-2018; refinement and modernisation of instruments for accreditation of undergraduates, postgraduate, part-time, affiliate, open and distance learning programmes as well as the state of university education in Nigeria 2017 to 18.
