UNIABUJA certificates are being forged in Abuja — VC Fake certificates of the Uni
Fake certificates of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) are being forged in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) says the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Michael Adikwu.
According to reports, the Vice Chancellor made the revelation at a forum of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
"Some of our certificates, I am aware, are being forged in the Federal Capital Territory here," Adikwu said.
"You see somebody with a second class lower in his or her statement of result, but when you check the real certificate its third class you will see."
He said the management has signed contracts with a British firm to produce certificates with security features that will prevent forgery.
"So, we decided that we will screen all certificates and get them ready and we have signed an agreement with a British company to produce certificates that have a lot of security features on it," the Vice Chancellor said.
"Once you look at it, it looks normal, but if you pass it through ultraviolet light, you will find out that a lot of features - up to seven - are on it."
Adikwu revealed that the institution is set to hold its first convocation in six years.
