OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY DISOWNS ‘’PROFESSOR’ ARRAIGNED OVER FRAUD
“From our records here, past or present, we do not have anybody that is a Professor that bears that name. We have also checked through our data, nobody bears that name. The fact that the person calls himself a Professor, we need to address the title of a Professor because we have Senate data’.
‘All Professors, retired or working, are part and parcel of the university. So, if anybody now claims to be a professor in OAU, whether a lecturer or not, it is fraudulent in the first instance. Having gone through our records, nobody bears that name, whether a male or a female. We do not have a record of anybody with that name who is teaching or has taught in this institution,” Olanrewaju said.
