UNIZIK Sacks Senior Lecturer For Forging His B.sc Certificate


The governing council of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Anambra, has dismissed Dr Peter Ekemezie, a senior lecturer at the Department of Pure and Industrial Chemistry, Faculty of Physical Sciences of the institution over certificate forgery.

According to a report by Daily Trust, the senior lecturer was sacked for the gross misconduct of plagiarism.


He was accused to have forged a B.Sc certificate from the University of Port Harcourt in Rivers state.

Ekemezie was found guilty of the act by a committee that was set up by the council to probe the allegation of plagiarism and the claims that he got his B.Sc from the University of Port Harcourt.

A letter by the council said that the institution’s decision was guided by the provision of its constitution to relieve Ekemezie of his duties with immediate effect from Wednesday, June 26.

The case started when one Uche Egolum petitioned the university to recover her money which he paid to the lecturer to help her get a degree at the University of Port Harcourt in 2004.
