NUC Speaks On Why It Published List Of Illegal Universities

The National Universities Commission, NUC has on
Friday written off recent media reports that the list
of illegal universities in Nigeria was published
because of the new administration in the country.

Addressing pressmen, the NUC Director of
Information, Malam Ibrahim Yakasai, said the list of
illegal universities had always been published in the
commission’s bulletin for the past five years.

     According to him, there are no illegal universities
operating in the country at present, adding that the
frequent publishing of the list is strategic.

                        “The list has been in        existence for the     past
     three to five years; the report that NUC
     suddenly woke up because of `change’ is

There in no illegal university in Nigeria
now; no illegal university in Nigeria has
produced a graduate.

We have a committee on illegal
universities and they work in partnership
with law enforcement agencies – the
police, ICPC, EFCC, among others.

We publish the list of illegal universities
repeatedly in order to stigmatise them and
make sure nobody uses them again; in the
last one year, there has been no case of
illegal university,’’ he said. (NAN)
