NUC Denies Report Of 100 Fake Professors In Nigerian Universities

On Monday, the National Universities Commission refuted claims of discovering 100 counterfeit professors within various universities nationwide. Certain media outlets had implicated specific universities as being among those censured by the NUC for employing fraudulent professors.

However, the NUC clarified in a statement that while it had initiated an academic verification process in 2019, it never published a roster of fake professors in 2024.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the commission can confirm that it initiated in 2019 a laudable project, with the intent of compiling and publishing a list of full Professors in the Nigerian Universities System through the use of an online portal to collate the requisite data. During the exercise, the NUC found anomalies, such as Associate Professors being listed as full Professors.

“It is essential to also state clearly that the Commission as a responsible Federal Government Agency, does not engage in half-baked exercises capable of tarnishing the image of Nigeria and the NUS.

“That was why the Commission deemed it necessary to share the collated data with the Nigerian Universities for authentication by the competent authorities as to who qualifies to be a full professor”, the regulatory agency said in the statement.
