Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, has vowed to root out individuals in both public and private sectors who possess fake certificates.

Mamman’s commitment came during his address in Abuja on Friday upon receiving the findings of an Inter-Ministerial Investigative Committee led by Prof. Jubrila Amin.

The initiative, launched on January 9, aimed to scrutinize allegations of diploma fraudulence in domestic and international private universities. The committee’s scope included assessing the involvement of government bodies or personnel in facilitating the acquisition of fraudulent degrees.

Mamman, expressing dismay at the discoveries, affirmed the ministry’s determination to collaborate with pertinent authorities in purifying the education sphere and eliminating any fraudulent practices.

“We can’t afford to have the integrity of our education soar by some few persons.

“It is possible that some are carrying fake certificates in public and private organisations who needs to be flushed out. This report is a product of a thorough investigation.

“It is sad that someone who should come out from a Nigerian institution with a 2:1 or 2:2 is now parading an international certificate of first class.

“The ministry is determined to take steps to sanitise the system,” he said.

He pledged to take decisive role to ensure standards were enshrined in the system saying that ‘we can’t afford to let down our country when it comes to standards’.
