UI, FUTA Refute Claims of Having Fake Professors


By Quadri Yahya 

The University of Ibadan and the Federal University of Technology Akure, Ondo State, have refuted claims that fake professors are lecturing in their schools.

ObserversMag gathered that a viral online media publication alleged that about 100 professors are fake, including some at UI and FUTA.

However, in a statement, UI Registrar, Ganiyu Saliu dismissed the claim, stressing that it will keep up with its standard. 

Saliu said, “The management of the University of Ibadan read with dismay the baseless story making the rounds that some fake professors were identified in the University.

“The management categorically states that none of the listed professors have ever been listed as staff of the University.

“Bi-ennially, the University of Ibadan publishes its calendar wherein all the names of bona-fide academic staff are listed. These names are not on the calendar.

“Members of the public are enjoined to disregard such stories as the University of Ibadan would never jeopardise the integrity of its academic programmes by parading fake professors”.

Similarly, FUTA Registrar Charles Adeleye disclosed that there are no fake professors in the university. 

Adeleye added that the nine names associated with the school were not on their  staff payroll.
