The management of the Federal University of Lafia has refuted allegations of employment and admission racketeering in the institution.

This is contained in a statement by the University’s Head, Information and Public Relations, Abubakar Ibrahim, and made available on Friday in Lafia.

Mr Ibrahim said that the allegation that the university was giving employment and admission to students in exchange for cash payment was not true.

The school’s spokesperson dismissed the allegations as false, wicked and malicious, and aimed at tarnishing the institution’s image.

“The claims are tissues of lies spread with the intention to defraud unsuspecting members of the public and do harm to the hard earned reputation of some persons in the university.

“At no time were employment, admission and contract offered for cash under the current Vice-chancellor, Professor Shehu Abdul Rahman, whose aversion for corruption and administrative malfeasance is well known,” he added.

The university’s spokesperson explained that employment, admission and contracts were always given based on merit, competence and qualifications.

He warned members of the public not to offer money to anyone under whatever claim for the purpose of employment or admission at the university.
