According to lawyers, poor law enforcement is facilitating the proliferation of fake Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results and certificates in Nigeria. They argue that the lack of effective regulation and enforcement allows individuals to engage in forgery and fraud, particularly in the education sector.
The lawyers highlight the need for stronger law enforcement measures to address this issue. They emphasize that relevant government agencies, such as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), should collaborate with law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute those involved in the production and distribution of fake UTME results and certificates.
Additionally, the lawyers call for stricter penalties for offenders and the establishment of specialized units within law enforcement agencies to combat forgery and fraud in the education sector. They believe that these measures will deter individuals from engaging in such illegal activities and protect the integrity of educational qualifications in the country.
Overall, the lawyers stress the importance of effective law enforcement to address the problem of fake UTME results and certificates and ensure a credible and trustworthy education system in Nigeria.
