Posted by

Musa Adamu Aliyu, chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), met with the journalist who broke the story of degree certificate fraud in several neighboring nations at the commission’s offices in Abuja.

The invitation was extended in order to discuss the reporter’s story published on December 30 about alleged corrupt activities at a university in Cotonou, according to a statement signed by Azuka Ogugua, the ICPC director of press.

According to the statement, the purpose of the discussion with the reporter was to gather more information about the certificate incident and to take appropriate action against those implicated.

According to HEALTHYSPOT101, degree programs at Cotonou’s Ecole Supérieure de Gestion et de Technologies (ESGT) are allegedly awarded in as little as six weeks, without the usual academic processes of application, registration, coursework, and examinations.

The ICPC has stated that it is beginning a comprehensive inquiry in response to these serious accusations.

Restoring and protecting the integrity of our educational system is the purpose of “the probe will rigorously examine the networks and individuals engaged in these malpractices,” according to the Commission.

Academic credentials obtained from foreign institutions, particularly those included in the investigation, would be jointly evaluated for legitimacy by the Commission and appropriate domestic and international agencies, according to the announcement.

After that, the ICPC urged everyone involved in the public and private sectors to work together on this important project.

“Collaboratively, we have the power to create an environment free from corruption, where the validity of our academic credentials is beyond dispute,” the Commission declared.
