Islamic group commends the Federal Government for its decision to temporarily halt the recognition of degrees obtained from Benin and Togo

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has expressed approval for the Federal Government’s decision to suspend the accreditation of degrees from the Republic of Benin and Togo. In a statement released on Wednesday, Professor Ishaq Akintola, the Executive Director of MURIC, characterized the suspension of accreditation for degrees from these countries due to irregularities and fraudulent practices as a commendable step.

MURIC praises the FG for prohibiting these deceitful certificates. Individuals holding such counterfeit credentials pose a significant threat to the well-being of Nigerians and the quality of public service,” the organization asserted.

The group further urged both federal and state education ministries to exercise caution in dealing with holders of such certificates. MURIC insisted that those discovered to be employed with such qualifications should be dismissed, and it called on security agencies to identify and apprehend those responsible for the fraudulent admissions within Nigeria.

“These are operatives of the fake tertiary institutions located in distant Benin and Togo. They should be held accountable under the full extent of the law.

“We call for an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the clearance letter issued by the Federal Ministry of Education, which affirmed that the university (ESGT) is included in the ministry’s list of accredited institutions,” the statement emphasized.
