Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistleblower, has been exposing what he calls fraudulent universities and undeserved academic qualifications obtained by several Sierra Leoneans in recent months.
His discoveries have prompted numerous prominent organizations to take harsh measures against its employees, including requiring them to disclose their academic credentials to a commission established by such institutions. The move was done first in the financial sector, and then in Parliament, where legislators authorized various government institutions to perform verification exercises on personnel' academic credentials. As I write, the procedure is still in progress.
The EBK University was the first government-owned institution to embark on the exercise and take drastic action, with three masters students who used their African Graduate University undergraduate degree to gain enrolment in the EBKUST Masters program having their acceptance letters withdrawn and their fees forfeited.
The University of Sierra Leone Media recently announced on Twitter that the School of Postgraduate Studies has rescinded all preliminary offers of admittance to applicants holding an AGU degree.
