SCAM! Dr. Yakubu Nura Did NOT Win Any “World Physics Competition” by KEVIND: 7:34am On Aug 12
By Farooq Kperogi

Dr. Yakubu Nura Did NOT Win Any “World Physics Competition”!

The Nigerian cyber space is being lit up with the news that a certain Dr. Yakubu Nuru of the University of Maiduguri has won “the World Physics Competition by defeating about 5720 contenders from 97 countries.” This “feat” reputedly earned him the distinction of becoming “the father of modern Einstein's planetary equation studies in Physics.” Hahahaha!

The truth is that Dr. Nura is the willing victim of a scam, a kind of scam I call scams of ego, which prey on the status anxieties and low self-esteem of insecure, fraud-prone people. World Championship, the "organization" that conferred the “award” on Dr. Nura, is a well-known scam operation that does not, for strategically fraudulent reasons, have a site with its own domain name. It uses a free sites.google.com account to perpetrate its scams.

Anyone who pays a fee can get any—I mean ANY—award from the site. Check the site (link provided in the comment section below) to see the list of “award winners” it features in every imaginable field. You will find many Nigerians there. Some past Nigerian “winners” even managed to scam the ever credulous Nigerian news media into publicizing their “feat.”
For instance, one Dr. Kaywood Leizou of the Niger Delta University (NDU) got the Guardian to write a story about his “award” from this same fraudulent site on October 19, 2018. Titled “Bayelsa don wins global chemical sciences contest,” the report said, “The Bayelsa-born don beat 5,845 others from 89 countries whose nominations were screened for this year’s edition. Consequently, the International Agency for Standards and Ratings (IASR) has recognised Leizou as one the world’s 500 most influential experts on earth in chemical sciences for the year.”

In 2018, the same website “conferred” one Dr. Shuaib Idris Mohammed of Edo State with the “World Champion in Agricultural Extension (Credit Facilities)” award “out of 91 countries.” The site added: “Dr. Shuaib Idris Mohammed is now recognized as Father of modern Credit Facilities in Agricultural Extension. The purpose of the award is to identify brilliant scientists and academicians around the world through World Championship. The World Championship is organized by International Agency for Standards and Ratings at international level.”

Sounds familiar? That’s the exact language used for Dr. Nura. The same suspiciously atrocious grammar. The “contenders” for the “awards” are always in the thousands—and from more than 90 countries in the world.

But nothing in Nura’s scholarly record—and those of others who have been made “fathers” of whole disciplinary specialties by the fraudulent site—suggests that he is anywhere close to the pinnacle of his career. In fact, most of his articles are published in dodgy, predatory journals that publish ANYTHING submitted to them for a fee.

The saddest thing about this fraud, for me, is that news organizations like the NTA, Voice of Nigeria, Sahara Reporters, and even well-known people like Shehu Sani and Kadaria Ahmed fell for it. It's an easily detectable scam, in my opinion. Nigerians have to be the world’s greatest suckers for cheap scams!

As in! It's unfortunate that Nigerians fall so easily for scams! The so-called award has no dedicated site and d news has only been reported on Nigerian sites n blogs. Unfortunately even our supposed 'mainstream' media were too lazy to verify n fell for the scam.

Where are d pictures of the event or of him receiving the award? If you talk, ignorant louts will call you jealous!

He didn't include Nairaland that fell for it hook line and sinker

Our journalism have really gone to the dogs such that there's no investigation any longer to authenticate the report before going to the press

Even the so called Sahara reporters fell for it face flat

And would you really be concerned or worried? The answer is no so in fact it you should be the greatest supporter of Biafra so that such 'crininal' people as you imagine will stop spoiling 'Nigeria' as a country and name. Merely insulting every Igbo name from the SS/SE will not make any difference!

We can never allow any leader from East hold any National position. If I lie, tell me who is the highest Political office holder from the East today? Senator Abaribe who is the Senate Minority leader, is the highest Political office holder from the East.

Eastern leaders should carry their style of leadership back to the East (bad energy, stay away).. And to correct one of your statement, the South South is not and can never be Biafra.

What is the link between national positions and separate countries?

When you were highlighting Monday Chikwunka from Delta state and calling Biafra everywhere u did not see the SS connection? When u highlighted kidnapping that y'all claim started from Niger Delta during the militant era you didn't know it was SS right?

Unstable, ignorant and myopic posts from you show exactly why y'all remain dumb and low.

U r too political...


You cannot take away the SS from the SE....even the The SW from the SE and SS.....they have married even in the highest level of Baba Tinubu, OBJ,...married from the SS....The north also has link with the South but not strong like within the South.


I expect this regional war to be base on developement from the side of govt.... Here is Taraba, my people donnot have common water to drink and govt. cannot provide it(I am not talking of portable water)...not to talk of electricity...OUR LEADERS are stealing causing disunity among u people while they meet at night to enjoy together and u people kill urselves( divide and rule principle, winners takes all)...I'm no longer blaming our leaders...

When are we going to have youths that will put our govt to work , I am not talking about the youth who lost election and wants revolution. I mean youth who have the nation at heart.



But those of u, who refused to get sense , it will not be well with u...U people r not wise and will not go unpurnish for being unwise purposefully... Because u get peanut from the govt, u no longer bother about your people that are suffering and dieing daily due to govt. and our leaders failure to do the needful.
