No fewer than 100 fake professors have been discovered across the Nigerian Universities by the National Universities Commission, NUC.
The NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, stated in the November edition of the commission’s bulletin that details of the fake professors are on its website.
Prof. Rasheed while at the 2019 retreat for Vice-Chancellors by the NUC Strategy Advisory Committee 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”.
He further explained that: “This measure helped in identifying fake professors in the system. The fight against fake professors is a collective responsibility”.
