The Chairperson of the Parliamentary Forum on children affairs,
Bernard Atiku, has asked the ministry of education to rise up and
inspect the higher learning institutions to stop the award of fake
qualifications to students.
Atiku recommendations come, as the National Council for Higher
Education (NHCE) recently noted that it’s aware of individuals,
including politicians, who have been approaching institutions of
higher learning, to secure diplomas and degrees, to meet academic
qualifications to vie for various posts without even attending
Atiku said that some education institutions, are teaching subjects and courses, which were not approved by the National curriculum
Development centre and the National Council for Higher Education which spoil the future of the students and resources of their parents.
He promised that, when parliament resumes they will task the ministry of education to explain, why some institutions are engaged in issues that are compromising the education standards of the country.
