The minister of education, Tahir Mamman, made this known on Friday, May 3, in Abuja while receiving the report of an Inter-Ministerial Investigative Committee on Degree Certificate Milling.

Recall that the FG had on January 9, set up the committee to probe the activities of degree racketeering in both foreign and local private universities.

The committee was mandated to review the role of any MDAs or its officials in facilitation of the recognition or the procurement of fake certificates.

Mamman, who expressed sadness over what was uncovered during the investigations, said that the ministry would work with relevant agencies to sanitise the education sector and rid it of any fake tendencies.

Specifically, he said any government official found wanting would face the full wrath of the law. “We can’t afford to have the integrity of our education soar by some few persons.
