He emphasized the university’s commitment to maintaining its long-standing reputation for academic excellence and integrity.

Further, the statement reassured current and prospective students, as well as the academic community at large, of UNN’s unwavering dedication to providing a world-class educational environment. It underscored the university’s commitment to truth and transparency in all its academic dealings.

The incident has sparked a broader conversation about the importance of academic integrity in Nigeria’s higher education system. It highlights the need for continued vigilance against misinformation and the importance of clear and open communication between educational institutions and the public.

In conclusion, the University of Nigeria Nsukka stands firm in its denial of the existence of fake professors within its ranks. It remains resolute in its mission to deliver high-quality education and uphold the highest academic standards.
