The federal administration of Bola Tinubu has said that it will postpone the accreditation of results from Uganda, Kenya, and the Niger Republic.

Following a recent revelation by an undercover journalist, the administration confirmed the approval and accreditation of results from Benin and Togo.

“We are not going to stop at just Benin and Togo,” Education Minister Tahir Mamman said on ChannelsTV on Wednesday night.

He continued: “We are going to extend the dragnet to countries like Uganda, Kenya, even Niger, where such institutions have been set up.”

“We will not stop at the suspension of certificates from Togo and Benin Republic alone. We are going to extend the suspension to other countries where such institutions operate.”

Remember how an undercover journalist revealed how he earned a degree from a university in Benin Republic in less than two months and then joined the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)?

The federal government promptly halted accreditation of diplomas from the two francophone West African nations and initiated an investigation, which the minister stated would be completed in three months.

Students who attend such institutes, according to Mamman, are not victims but criminals. “I have no sympathy for people like this.” Instead, they should be arrested as part of the criminal chain,” the minister stated on Wednesday.
