Political Office Holders Will No Longer Be Conferred With Honorary Degrees... VCs

Henceforth, political office holders are no longer to be conferred with honorary doctorate degrees, the Association of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities has said.

In an attempt to reduce the indiscriminate award of honorary degrees, the Association, on Monday in Abuja, released guidelines for the award of honorary degrees in Nigerian universities.
The Secretary-General of the Association, Michael Faborode, said the guidelines would be effective from January 2013; and would, henceforth, be referred to as the “Keffi Declaration.”
He said that the 27th conference of the association held at the Nassarawa State University had examined the general erosion of academic culture and tradition.
Mr. Faborode said the “Keffi Declaration” would seek to restore the age long university culture and tradition of best practices.
