NANS says over 15,000 students affected by ban in certificates racketeering

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Benin Republic, has said that more than 15,000 students in the country have been affected by the ban on schools in the region.

In view of this, NANS has appealed for leniency over the ban on validation of degree certificates from the country and Togo.

TMY Newspapers recalls that an investigative reporter had exposed certificate racketeering in high institutions of learning in the neighbouring countries.

In light of the development, the federal government of Nigeria slapped a ban on the validation of degree certificates from the countries.

And speaking on Channels Television on Thursday, NANS President of Benin Republic, Ugochukwu Favour said the government should consider legitimately admitted students.

“For now, I will say that the Federal Government should look into the issue. Now, you can’t, because it is happening in this school, punish everyone because it involved close to 15,000 students in the Benin Republic.

“I have really not validated if it has been happening for a long time. This is just like what just came out on social media and we are still trying to find out how long it has been happening,” the NANS president said. “So, that is why I set up a committee as the president to investigate it.”
