A member of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, Benedicta Daudu, is currently embroiled in an examination malpractice scandal.
According to a PREMIUM TIMES exclusive, Mrs Daudu, an associate professor of law and head of the Department of Jurisprudence and International Law of the Faculty of Law at the University of Jos, UNIJOS, was allegedly caught cheating while writing an examination for a Master’s degree in Research and Public Policy in the Faculty of Social Sciences of the same university. Although she has a Masters in Law, the associate professor had been working towards another masters in Research and Public Policy.
She was allegedly caught sneaking in prepared answers, also referred to as “chokes” by students, during the examination for the Global Context in Public Policy course. Sources said the matter was subsequently reported to the university’s examination committee but some students and faculty claimed there were attempts at cover ups by the university authorities.
