NO SELLING OF HANDOUTS! COVENANT UNIVERSITY WARNS…


The Chairman, Covenant University (CU) Publication Committee, Prof. Solomon Oranusi, says the university has zero tolerance for the sales of handouts by lecturers to students in order to fight intellectual theft and plagiarism.

Oranusi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos that the feat achieved by the university, despite its young age, was as a result of due diligence to academic research and excellent teaching methodology.

His words “It is zero tolerance, that is, there is nothing like lecturers selling handouts to their students in Covenant University; you don’t try it; and as for textbooks, we don’t produce just any kind. We run textbook publication of international standard.”


“We are not producing any textbook for our students to use; we produce for other authors who want to publish materials, in the university. All the textbooks we use in CU must meet the standard set out by the international standard committee on publications.”

Oranusi, who is a Professor of Microbiology, said the policy of no sale of handout had earned the university the reputation in the publishing sector.
He added that it was a form of hard-earned quality control.

“Books must pass through academic reviews; through this committee, before we send them to reviewers outside the university. The reviewers give their result before any decision can be taken on a book, which is finally sent to the International Standard Desk for ratification before publication.”
