The attention of Covenant University management was drawn to a purported publication by the National Universities Commission [NUC] titled – “About 100 Fake Professors Uncovered In Nigerian Universities”.
The publication listed four such Professors in Covenant University. The University Management wishes to set the record straight, as we have no such names as listed in the said article in our pay roll. Also, Covenant had never interacted with any of the four persons at any time, and in any capacity.
We wish to put it on record that our recruitment exercise is rigorous. It is worthy to also note that our appointments and promotions criteria is of world class standard, hence, Covenant would not appoint unqualified persons as professors. We wish to, by this statement, advise our esteemed stakeholders to kindly disregard this misinformation.
