Buhari Warns University Lecturers Against Academic Corruption

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday warned university lecturers against academic corruption and inciting students.

Mr. Buhari, who gave the warning at the 31st Convocation and 40th Anniversary of the University of Ilorin, said corruption does not only involve politicians and goes beyond money or concern only politicians.

He said his administration would not condone any institution or lecturer exploiting students academically or inciting them to destabilise the system.

The President, represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, David Babachir, said the present administration was ready to support development of infrastructure in institutions.

He added that government would also support vocational studies and education reform as a means of ensuring graduates were fully employed.

Mr. Buhari advised the graduands to remain disciplined and uphold their integrity, stressing that they must shun corruption and all forms of social vices as they step out of the institution.

President of Ghana, John Mahama, spoke on ”African Agenda 2063: Fighting Poverty and Ensuring Prosperity in Africa.”

Mr. Mahama advised Africa leaders to lay concrete foundation for the younger generation.

He said past leaders like Idi-Amin of Uganda, Mobutu Sese Sekou of DR Congo (Zaire) ruled as if they would not die.

He urged all 54 countries that constitute the Africa Union to ensure that the aims and agenda of the union were achieved for younger generation to fulfil their destiny.

Mr. Mahama eulogised past African leaders who fought for the liberation of the continent from colonialists.
“Only sound education, peace and utilisation of human resource endowment could bring real freedom for Africans.’’

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara said he established the Abdulfatah Ahmed Indigent support Fund to help support indigent students of the institution.

The governor also donated N10 million to the Department of Physical Sciences and Life Sciences of the University of Ilorin.
