UNIJOS disowns REPS member 4 Forgery of certificate.
CONTROVERSY continues to trail claim by a member of the House of Representatives, Mallam Abdulrazak Nuhu Bature, that he possesses an Advanced Diploma in Public Administration (ADPA) from the University of Jos.
Bature, who represents Ningi/Warji Federal Constituency of Bauchi State, allegedly claimsto be a 2006/2007 graduate of the ADPA programme of the institution in his curriculum vitae.
The university, however, insists he was never its student.
The fresh disclaimer by the university follows a public notice in a national daily, which sought to discredit an earlier disclaimer published by the university in two national newspapers last month.
The quarter page advertisement purported tohave emanated from the office of the registrar entitled Re-Disclaimer claimed that the published disclaimer did not emanate from the university and urged the public to discountenance it.
The university, in a reaction, described the advertisement as a forgery designed to confuse the public and re-affirmed its earlier publication that the legislator was never a student of the institution.
Deputy Registrar (Information and Publications) of the university, Mr. Steve Otowo, told journalists that the university stands by the earlier disclaimer.
