In a statement posted on his personal social media account, Öztürkler refuted claims of his affiliation with KSTU's academic staff amid a scandal involving counterfeit diplomas.

Explaining the situation, Öztürkler mentioned that he had been approached in the 2020-2021 period to participate in projects as a visiting academic and to provide academic support to graduate students in project-related matters. While initially considering the proposal positively, he cited his busy schedule as the reason why the collaboration did not proceed further.

Emphasizing his status as not being engaged in any academic activities at KSTU as of 2022, Öztürkler clarified that he is not part of the university's academic staff. He further stated that he has never been a member of KSTU's board of trustees.

Öztürkler concluded his statement by affirming his commitment to academic development, expressing his intention to continue participating in projects and academic environments for personal growth. He underscored that his involvement in such activities is a natural part of his developmental journey, rather than a subject for criticism.
