By Michael Adeyemo

Two Public Affairs Analysts, Mr Adesumbo Badejoko and Mr Kayode Adejumo-Bello, have given divergent opinions over the recent ban by the federal government on academic certificates obtained from the Benin Republic and other African countries.

Mr Badejoko and Mr Adejumo-Bello gave their opinions while featuring on Pensioners’ FM weekend’s Current Affairs programme, Voice of Liberation.

According to Mr Badejoko who is also a Media and Education Consultant, failure on the part of the federal government to do the right things, in terms of proper management of the country’s education sector, was responsible for the various cases of certificate racketeering.

Mr Badejoko who noted that the ban was just the first step to the issues, called for thorough investigation to find a lasting solution to the menace.

On his part, Mr Kayode Adejumo-Bello, who is a Professional Biographer, commended the Federal Government for suspending the accreditation of degrees obtained from the Republic of Benin, Togo, and some other countries.

 Mr Adejumo-Bello commended the reporter Umar Audu, who investigated to expose the rot in the education sector.

According to Mr Adejumo-Bello, the government should step up efforts to probe the matter and punish those involved in the saga.

The analysts however called on the federal government and stakeholders to deemphasize certification and prioritise vocational and entrepreneurial education.
