When a discovery is made, it passes through these committees to the university senate; where after a rigorous process of verification, the university can decide whether or not to confer its patent on it.
“However, an individual has the prime right to his discovery. It does not mean that he or she cannot explore other ways to patent the discovery.
“The important thing is that the university has a procedure and if a lecturer makes a discovery, he is expected to follow this procedure.
Further speaking, Fagge said, “since the self acclaimed cure for HIV/AIDS by prof. isaiah Ibeh did not follow due process, it can not be perfidious.
