Honorary PhD is business - Idris Oni submits

In a chat with the Dr who lectures at Crescent University, he said the doctorate earned by Lateef Adedimeji and several other content creators does not come with a PhD title at the back of their names.

He said:

"Mostly, an honorary PhD is business, it is actually called an honorary doctorate and not a PhD. They can be called Dr and attach it to their names, but they have no right to attach PhD to their names."
