“More than 2000 fake results are outside that were given to students from this school. We went to SUBEB, Teaching Service Commission, Ministry of Education and asked them to do verification of results. Many of them have come back and we have discovered that many of the results were fake. They were produced by our own people here.

“Many of my staff were taken to the Department of State Services because we don’t have a problem with our lecturers. It is now left for those who are holding the certificates to own up.

“But we thank God. If you go to anybody now even for assistance, they will tell you, if it is not within the confines of the law, we will not do it. Our lecturers are now going to their classes and the students are happy,” the Provost said.
