MURIC hails FG over Benin, Togo degrees accreditation suspension


The Muslim Rights Concern has expressed commendation for the Federal Government’s decision to suspend the accreditation of degrees obtained from the Republic of Benin and Togo. 

In a statement issued by Prof. Ishaq Akintola, the Executive Director of MURIC, the move was praised as a response to irregularities and fraudulent practices in these institutions.

Executive Director of MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, in the statement on Tuesday expressed appreciation, stating, “A laudable move was made by the federal government when it suspended the accreditation of degrees from the Republic of Benin and Togo for their irregularities and fraudulent practices.”

“We charge the ministries of education at both federal and state levels to be wary of holders of such certificates. Those found to have been employed with them should be shown the way out. Furthermore, the security agencies should fish out those behind the fraudulent admissions within Nigeria. Those are agents of the fake tertiary institutions in faraway Benin and Togo. They should be made to face the full wrath of the law,’’ Akintola said.

He added, “We demand investigation into circumstances surrounding the clearance letter issued by the Federal Ministry of Education which confirmed that the university (ESGT) is on the ministry’s list of accredited institutions.”

“Before we draw the curtain, we find the undercover journalist equally worthy of encomiums. He went underground to unearth this educational fraud. He put his life on the line for the sake of his country. Umar Audu is worthy of emulation by his colleagues in the Fourth Estate of the Realm,” Akintola concluded.
