The Management of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University ATBU Bauchi has described as untrue and mere fiction a story attributed to the National Universities Commission NUC that it has uncovered about 100 fake Professors in some Nigerian Universities.

In a statement signed by the University’s Director Information and Public Relations Zailani Bappah says the story is a mere fiction, an imaginary act and a possible attempt to smear the hard earned reputation of the University.

“The attention of the management is drawn to a certain story going the rounds on social media and some online media attributing to the National Universities Commission (NUC) that it has uncovered about 100 fake Professors in some Nigerian Universities”, it notes.

According to the statement, the story states that among the listed 100 alleged Professors are the names of seven as staff of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi.

It states that none of the mentioned Professors is a staff of the University, nor have interacted with the University at any given time in whatever capacity.

“While the authenticity of this story itself, remain in great doubt, the management of ATBU wishes to categorically state that none of the mentioned Professors is a staff of the University, nor have interacted with the University at any given time in whatever capacity”, it dismisses.

The statement further advises stakeholders to disregard the blatant untruth as it is a mere fiction and an imaginary act; a possible attempt to smear the hard earned reputation of our University.
