“Therefore, universities management and the general environments of teaching and learning must model the highest standard of integrity, probity and moral discipline.
“In this connection, I must draw your attention to the tendency of some institutions to devalue the quality of their degrees by given out honorary Doctorate Degrees indiscriminately against the common universities community practice,” he added.
The President said the habit of those given award of degrees indiscriminately is a sabotage which undermines the very core of academic integrity and must be discontinued.
