ICPC Probes Cotonou Varsity Over Alleged Certificate Racketeering



To Combat Financial Tax Fraud, The ICPC And FIRS Initiates Talks

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, has commenced investigations into Cotonou University’s alleged six-week degree scheme.

A statement by the agency’s spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua, said the ICPC chairman, Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu, SAN, convened a critical meeting on Tuesday with the undercover reporter on the case at the ICPC’s headquarters in Abuja.

According to the statement, they discussed the outlet’s December 30th report on alleged corrupt practices in rapid degree issuance at a Cotonou university, with a view to deepening the investigation and initiating relevant actions.

The statement read: “The investigation into Ecole Superieure de Gestion et de Technologies, ESGT, in Cotonou reveals a concerning situation where degrees are allegedly awarded in as little as six weeks, bypassing standard academic procedures like application, registration, coursework, and examinations.

“In response to these critical allegations, the ICPC is embarking on a thorough investigation. This probe will rigorously examine the networks and individuals engaged in these malpractices, with the objective of restoring and preserving the integrity of our educational system.”
