Don’t lift ban on Togo, Benin Republic certificates – NANS

The National Association of Nigerian Students, on Saturday, told the Federal Government not to reverse its earlier ban on certificates obtained from universities in Togo and Republic of Benin.
NANS warned the Federal Government against yielding to unnecessary pressure over this long overdue policy saying that “doing contrary will only spell doom for the nation and basterdise its stand on qualitative education for its citizens”
The students’ group made this call in a statement signed on Saturday by its National Senate Clerk, Abdul-Yekinn Odunayo, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Odunayo, who bemoaned calls by some Nigerians that the suspension placed by the FG on certificates obtained from institutions in both West African countries should be lifted, argued that reversing the suspension order as a result of such calls can only spell doom for the country.
He noted that Nigeria as the giant of Africa and a leading light in education in the continent, must not allow substandard certificates from mushroom varsities to be tendered and accepted in Nigeria.
NANS added, “The FG must continue to sanitize the education sector in the country, particularly, the tertiary institutions to ensure delivery of quality and fully baked graduates.
“We reiterate our support for the FG’s suspension of the certificates from Togo and the Republic of Benin and we appeal to President Bola Tinubu-led administration to make adequate funds and infrastructure available in the nation’s tertiary institutions.”
