Dear Nigerian Students,
Our attention has been drawn to a fake post circulating on social media platforms which contains false and misleading information involving a prestigious and renowned Professor in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry and the attempt to break the record of the toughest exam written by students.
We unequivocally denounce this viral post and also urge the public to shun and
disregard such content. It is essential to verify the authenticity of information before accepting and sharing it. Spreading false information not only misleads the public but also tarnishes the reputation of individuals unjustly targeted.
We demand the perpetrators responsible for creating and sharing this fake content to take immediate action by removing it from all platforms where it has been published, both locally and internationally.
Professor Offing E. Offing deserves the utmost respect for his efforts, achievements and contributions in academia and beyond. We express our sincere apologies for the distress caused by this fabricated post.
Together, let us stand against the proliferation of misinformation and work towards fostering a trustworthy and informed online environment.
Comr. Nkebe Wisdom Osowoki
