According the publication the software programme development was at the instance of the Association of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (AVCNU).
The publication said this would develop the home-grown anti-plagiarism software with the local repository.
It quoted the Director, Computer Services and Information Technology (COMSIT), Directorate of the University of Ilorin, Prof. Mohammed Ahmed, as saying the software was at 80 per cent completion.
Ahmed added that using local human resource to develop the software has helped to cut down cost and show the ingenuity of Nigerians.

Ahmed said when operational, the anti-plagiarism application, would be made available to all Nigerian universities.
