Security will pursue Nigerians with fake certificates from foreign countries, Education Minister Tahir Mamman says

Security agents will go after Nigerians with fake certificates from foreign countries already using them to secure opportunities in the country, Education Minister Tahir Mamman has said.

He described such individuals as criminals and not victims. “I have no sympathy for such people. Instead, they are part of the criminal chain that should be arrested,” the minister said sternly.

“If along the line, we can trace that there are people already in the system. For instance, if a particular institution or operator has been operating, say in the last 10 years, we will check if we can get records of Nigerians who attended that institution.

“Once we do that, they are criminals and you know there is no timeframe to criminality. We will trace them. As long as we can lay our hands on their institutions and they are right here with us, certainly, the security agencies will go after them because they are criminals”
