According to the news report, Umar Audu an investigative journalist, purchased a Mass Communication degree certificate in 6 weeks from Ecole Superieure de Gestion et de Technologies, ESGT, Cotonou, Benin Republic, without application, registration, studying, writing exams or crossing Nigerian border and went ahead to participate in the National Youth Service Scheme (NYSC).

The certificate and transcript purchased by the journalist indicated that he commenced the institution in 2018 and graduated on September 5, 2022.

But despite having the certificate and transcript in his possession, the reporter had fears they could be fake, until he discovered a scan code placed on the left bottom of the transcript, scanned through and directed him to the website of ESGT University, indicating that he is a genuine product of the institution.
