Several reactions have trailed the immediate suspension of evaluation and accreditation of degree certificates from Benin Republic and Togo.
Recall that the federal government, on Tuesday, suspended certificates from the two West African countries following a report detailing how a degree was acquired from a university in Benin Republic in two months.
This development was announced in a statement on Tuesday, January 2, signed by the spokesperson for the Federal Ministry of Education, Augustina Obilor-Duru.
In the statement, the government lamented that “some Nigerians deploy nefarious means and unconscionable methods to get a Degree with the end objective of getting graduate job opportunities for which they are not qualified.”
The statement added that the suspension would remain in place pending the outcome of an investigation involving the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education of Nigeria and the two countries, as well as the Department of State Security Services (DSS), and the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC).
Following the development, some netizens took to social media to express their views on the suspension of the degree accreditation and how the reporter bagged a Cotonou varsity degree in 6 weeks.
