The Management of University of Ilorin on Sunday dismissed the claims that 11 fake professors were uncovered in the institution.
This is contained in a statement signed by spokesperson of the university, Mr Kunle Akogun,and made available to newsmen in Ilorin.
“We dont have fake professors and they do not exist in our university.
“The National Universities Commission had categorically dismissed the information as fallacious fabrication of mischief makers.
“The Commission has dissociated itself from the list that first surfaced in December 2019.
“We deem it expedient to categorically disassociate our institution from the story of the 11 fake professors listed against our university,” he said.
According to him, none of the persons on the list is on the university’s nominal roll, nor had any of them ever had any dealing with the University of Ilorin at any time or in any guise.
He explained that the clarification was necessary to assure esteemed stakeholders that UNILORIN had built an age-long reputation for high standard, integrity and strict adherence to best global practices.
He added that issues of staff promotion remained unsoiled and it would never be compromised.
“We view the report as another antics of purveyors of fake news and mischief makers,” he added.
