In reaction to the allegations of examination malpractice brought against a member of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Advisory Committee against Corruption, Benedicta Daudu has resigned from the committee.
In a text message sent to Premium Times, who broke the news of the malpractice, today, the executive secretary of the committee, Bolaji Owasanoye, revealed that the committee discussed the allegations brought against Daudu and she “voluntarily” resigned from her position in the committee until the case is fully dealt with by the management of the University of Jos.
The text message read, “The Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption has discussed the allegations against Dr Benedicta Daudu based on information in the public domain and Dr Benedicta Daudu has voluntarily stepped down from the committee until the matter is officially concluded by the university.”
Daudu, an associate professor of law and head of the Department of Jurisprudence and International Law of the Faculty of Law in University of Jos, was accused of cheating in an examination for a Master’s degree in Research and Public Policy in the Faculty of Social Sciences after she was allegedly found with already prepared answers in the examination hall in the same school.
The associate professor who has a Masters in Law, was working towards another Masters in Research and Public Policy.
