The foremost university education regulatory agency in Nigeria, the NUC recently released a list of about 60 institutions in the country considered as illegal. The NUC said the list isn’t even exhaustive and warned the general public about patronising such institutions.
It warns that “Certificates obtained from these sources will not be recognised for the purpose of NYSC, employment or further studies”.
Good move, don’t you think? Public awareness is key in the fight against the menace of these mushroom universities. It will save many from the financial and psychological trauma resulting from falling victims of this parasitic institutions.
