Minister Suspends Accreditation of Degree Certificates from Benin, Togo

The Nigerian Government, has suspended the Evaluation and Accreditation of Degree Certificates from the Republics of Benin and Togo until further notice.

The suspension, which takes effect from the 2nd of January, 2024, was contained in a statement signed by Mrs. Augustina Obilor-Duru on behalf of the director of press and public relations of the Federal Ministry of Education,

The action, according to the statement, is coming on the heels of investigative journalism that unveiled how some Nigerians deploy nefarious means and unconscionable methods to get a degree from the two countries, with the end objective of getting graduate job opportunities for which they are not qualified.

The statement quoted the publication by the journalist titled “UNDERCOVER: How DAILY NIGERIAN Reporter Bagged Cotonou Varsity Degree in 6 Weeks, Participated in NYSC Scheme” as a precursor to the suspension of accreditation of degree certificates from the two countries.

The statement equally noted that the Federal Ministry of Education frowns at the development and has constituted a committee, which also comprises security operatives, to investigate the matter as well as instituted an internal administrative process to deal with collaborators in the ministry, according to extant rules of the Nigerian Public Service.
