The management of Babcock University, Ilisan Remo, has debunked online reports that listed some alleged fake professors in some private and public universities in the country.
The online reports had listed some of these alleged 100 fake professors, about nine of whom were also said to be with Babcock University.
The university, on Sunday night, in a statement by its Director of Communication and Marketing, Dr Joshua Suleiman, condemned the report, describing it as mischievous, and outright falsehood.
The statement partly reads, “Babcock University strongly condemns a faceless online post that places the university’s name on the list of universities with fake professors.
“The list, which was spuriously attributed to the National Universities Commission, is not only ill-motivated and utterly mischievous. It is outrightly condemnable.
“Babcock University has a reputation for due diligence and rigorous search for and recruitment of her academic staff.
“Babcock University takes more than a keen interest in the quality of education offered to her students, and she would do nothing to undermine their future by recruiting academics with fake professorial credentials or any disputable certificates for that matter.
“Babcock University is guided by strong values that will dissuade her from compromising on quality, integrity, responsibility, and honest service to God and humanity.
“While we continue to relentlessly pursue and advocate meritocracy in our institutions, we urge our students, parents, and the public as a whole to disregard and spurn, with every sense of responsibility, the evil-inclined publication.
“We assure the public of Babcock University’s constant and consistent delivery of high-quality education.”
