No fake Professors in our Institution, says University of Ilorin


By Kayode Abdulazeez, Ilorin

The management of the University of Ilorin has dismissed the report that linked some fake professors to the institution and said there are no fake professors under its payroll.

This clarification was stated in a statement signed by the Director of Corporate Affairs of the Institution, Kunle Akogun

The statement read: “The attention of the management of the University of Ilorin has been drawn to a trending list of 100 fake professors in some universities in the country as purportedly uncovered by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

“Even though the NUC has dissociated itself from the list that first surfaced in December 2019, we deem it expedient to categorically disown the 11 so-called professors listed against the University of Ilorin in the recently exhumed report.

“None of the persons on the list is on our University’s nominal roll, nor had any of them ever had any dealing with the University of Ilorin at any time or in any guise.

“This clarification is necessary to assure our esteemed stakeholders that UNILORIN’s well-heeled reputation for high integrity and strict adherence to best global practices in everything we do, especially on issues of staff promotion, remains unsoiled and it can never be compromised.

“We view the trending report as another antic of purveyors of fake news and mischief makers, and they should be rightly ignored”, he said.
