“On this matter, the university took all the steps at all levels – Departmental, Faculty, Senate. Whatever you might read lately is the decision of the council. I am not in a position to say what next will be done.”

Popoola said the sacked lecturer’s doctorate degree could not be withdrawn from him because he earned and worked for it.

“Degrees are earned and worked for. UNIOSUN can’t strip him of his degree but wherever he got it from. Degrees are issued on learning and character,” he said.
