The federal government has suspended the assessment and accreditation of degree certificates from Benin Republic and Togo.

This is contained in a statement signed by Augustina Obilor-Duru on Tuesday on behalf of the Director of Press and Public Relations of the Federal Ministry of Education.

Part of the statement reads: “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.”

An online newspaper revealed how a Cotonou-based University issued a degree certificate to a Nigerian investigated journalist in six weeks.
