Some reports that fake professors in UNILAG were discovered by the National Universities Commission (NUC) have been refuted by the University of Lagos (UNILAG) management.
The reports announced that NUC uncovered about over 100 fake professors across Nigerian universities, five of which were at the University of Lagos.
On Saturday, the university management refuted this claim via a statement issued and signed by the Head of the University’s Communication Unit, Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the University Management hereby explicitly refutes the five (5) names listed as ‘fake’ Professors of the University,” the statement asserted.
The statement continued by saying “members of the university community and general public are enjoined to completely disregard the report as the person listed are not our staff, and have never worked, at any point in time and in any capacity at the university.”
