The Minister of Education, Professor Tahir Mamman has pledged to flush out fake certificate holders in public and private organisations.

He made this known while receiving the report of an Inter-Ministerial Investigative Committee on Degree Certificate Milling.

The Committee was set up in January this year to investigate allegations of degrees racketeering in both Nigeria and foreign universities.

Also, the committee was mandated to review the role of any MDAs or its officials involved in the recognition and procurement of fake certificates.

Professor Mamman who expressed sadness over the outcome of the investigations, said the ministry would work with relevant agencies to sanitise and maintain standards in the education sector.

Presenting the report, Chairman of the Inter-ministerial Committee, Professor Jubrila Amin urged agencies in the sector to automate their system to ensure strict monitoring of Tertiary Institutions.

Professor Amin called on the National Universities Commission (NUC) to pay more attention to institutions offering part time or sandwich programmes to prevent centres offering unaccredited courses.
