UI Debunks Reports On Fake Professors

The University of Ibadan (UI) Ibadan, Oyo State, on Sunday, described as baseless the story making the rounds that some fake professors were identified in the institution.

A purported list from a government agency has been in circulation containing names of some professors who are said to be fake.

The university, in a statement by the Registrar and Secretary to Council and Senate, Ganiyu Saliu, in Ibadan, the state capital, said the names on the list were not bona-fide members of the institution.

“The management of the University of Ibadan read with dismay the baseless story making the rounds that some fake professors were identified in the University. The management categorically states that none of the professors listed have ever been listed as staff of the university. Biennially, the University of Ibadan publishes its calendar wherein all the names of the bona fide academic staff are listed. These names are not on the Calendar.

“Members of the public are enjoined to disregard such stories as the University of Ibadan would never jeopardise the integrity of its academic programmes by parading fake professors,” the statement added.
