Benedicta Daudu, a member of the Pres. Buhari’s Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, has voluntarily stepped down from the committee until the matter is officially concluded, after it was revealed that she allegedly cheated in an examination at the University of Jos, on May 4, 2016.
According to an exclusive report by Premium Times, Mrs Daudu, an associate professor of law and head of the Department of Jurisprudence and International Law of the Faculty of Law in UNIJOS, was allegedly caught cheating while writing an examination for a Master’s degree in Research and Public Policy in the Faculty of Social Sciences of the same university.
Although she has a Masters in Law, the associate professor had been working towards another masters in Research and Public Policy. PREMIUM TIMES learnt that the department later accused her of sneaking in prepared answers during the examination for the Global Context in Public Policy course.
The matter was allegedly reported to the university’s examination committee but some students and faculty claimed there were attempts at cover ups by the university authorities. But the Dean, Faculty of Social Science of the University, Prof. Ezekiel Best, said it was not true that authorities were trying to cover up the matter.
