FRAUD ALERT: Dr. Yakubu Nura Did NOT Win Any “world Physics Competition” by TempleChinedum(m): 10:34am On Aug 12, 2019
If You have previously read a publication about Dr. Yakubu Nuru of the University of Maiduguri who won the "The World Physics Competition" by defeating over 5000 physicists from 97 countries, then you read a falsified and scam report. Read details below :


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
Physics World Cup from Physicists World Championship -

https://sites.google.com/site/worldchampionshipwinners/physics-world-cup-from-physicists-world-championship
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
Oct 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.” (Read the story here:
Bayelsa don wins global chemical sciences contest | The Guardian Nigeria News - Nigeria and World News
A lecturer with the Niger Delta University (NDU), Dr. Kaywood Leizou, has won the 2018 World Chemical Sciences (Metal Speciation in Sediment) Championship. The Bayelsa-born don beat 5,845 others from…

https://guardian.ng/news/bayelsa-don-wins-global-chemical-sciences-contest/
).

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.” (Read about him here:
World Championship-2018 in Agricultural Extension (Credit Facilities) - World Championship
World Championship is organized officially by International Agency for Standards and Ratings.

https://sites.google.com/site/worldchampionshipwinners/world-championship-2018-in-agricultural-extension-credit-facilities
).

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 Senator @ShehuSani and @KadariaAhmed fell for it. It's an easily detectable scam, in my opinion.

Nigerians have to be the world’s greatest suckers for cheap scams!

Fraud?

I'm not too surprised.. As long as aboki can confidently tour the geo political zones with his cows, even his brother the one currently ruling in a country called Nigeria can testify.
