Tinubu’s govt vows to arrest Nigerians with fake school certificates, labels them as criminals


President Bola Tinubu‘s administration has declared Nigerians with fraudulent certificates from foreign institutions as criminals, vows to eliminate them from the system.

In a recent interview with Channels TV, the Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman disclosed this following an investigation by Daily Nigeria revealing the sale of a degree certificate by Benin Republic University to an unknown reporter who never attended the school.

He said:

“If, along the line, we can trace that there are people already in the system.

For instance, if a particular institution or operator has been operating, say, in the last 10 years, we will check if we can get records of Nigerians who attended that institution.

“Once we do that, they are criminals and you know there is no timeframe to criminality.

We will trace them.

As long as we can lay our hands on their institutions and they are right here with us, certainly, the security agencies will go after them because they are criminals.”
