NUC Releases List Of 37 Illegal Universities
The Acting Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Chris Maiyaki, says the commission has identified no fewer than 37 illegal universities currently operating across the Nigeria.
Maiyaki noted that some arrests have been made in the past months.
Maiyaki disclosed that the Department of State Services (DSS) was involved in the clampdown on illegal institutions.
The NUC secretary urged parents to check the commission’s website for illegal and legal varsities in Nigeria so that their wards don’t fail victims of these institutions.
Maiyaki’s statements followed the suspension of degree certificates from two francophone West African countries after an undercover journalist detailed how he acquired a degree from a university in Benin Republic under two months and in fact, deployed for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
