NUC Suspends Licenses of Madonna University, Lead City University & 5 Others



The National Universities Commission, the regulatory body governing the activities of all Universities in Nigeria has again made some startling changes.

Just days after suspending all Part-time programmes being run by Universities, the NUC has suspended the operational licences of seven private universities for violating its guidelines in physical facilities and academic programmes.

The affected universities are Achievers University, Owo; Caritas University, Enugu; Joseph Ayo Babalola University, Osun; Lead City University, Ibadan; Madonna University, Okija; Obong University, Obong and Tansian University, Umunya.

NUC spokesman, Mallam Ibrahim Yakassai, confirmed this in a phone chat last night.

The decision to suspend the operational licences of the affected universities was due to their non-compliance with the regulations guiding the operations of universities in the country as stipulated by the NUC.

“The operators of the universities affected know their offences because so many times, we have informed them about their failings but they did not take necessary steps to address their shortcomings. Anyway, It’s just a suspension and it will be lifted as soon as they do the correct things,” he said.

This according to NUC implies they can’t admit new students nor continue lectures for old students until further notice.

      what we need to suspend is the NUC itself….so incompetent, so corrupt, and so un-serious….NUC lacks focus, it is another government agency as good as JAMB and NECO. I am glad you know they and their agents receive bribes far more than the legislators and the civil servants. Until NUC is audited and probed, so long will Nigerian universities continue to swim in mediocrity

    I am a 300 level student of madonna studying accounting belive me am so happy NUC took this bold step infact they were suposed to have done that long time ago, this skool dose not deserve a licence to operate till they build good hostels, lecture halls, stop security gaurds from harrasing students, employ qualified lecturer not illitrares dat we somtime corrct in the lecture hall, give us proffesors, water, steady light, stop exploiting students, lectures colleclt as much as 3000 to submit assignment apart from the fact that we must buy ther self authord textbooks, they force us to go to catolic church every wednesday and sunday, they fine students lots of money as much as 200, 000 all in the name of disipline and so much more… We the students madonna and its sister college caritas are happy that this bold step was takin the only regreat we have are those finnal yr students who will sit for their degree exam stating on monday cuz efforts and money as much as 1million nira per semester seems wasted, yet we must make such sacrifices so stop other from coming to madonna to waste their money and time becaus after all the mony spent graguation is not even guaranted

    Welcome home,I still ponder why students choose to study in Nig private university.heard they don’t have academic freedom and are treated like secondary sch pupils,not to talk of the exorbitant fees.

    • Joey

      July 5, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      You want to know why, I’ll tell you. It is because JAMB has become too stupid and think they can fail students anyhow and claim they were involved in malpractise or that the students don’t know anything. Also the schools are strike free (whether for a day, a week, a month, a year, a decade) you get to graduate at the expected time that’s if the student is serious.
      On Academic freedom, I would rather call it “social freedom”. It is not all private schools that don’t have social freedom, Igbinedion students for instance have all the freedom they want the way they have in govt Universities. Most of the private Universities don’t have this freedom because they are owned by churches and the churches always want to “uphold” the standards of the church they claim they have and it is only normal for you to attend a Church Instituion and you will be forced to attend their services.

    most of the people who open these schools act like they have never visited foreign countries b4…….most schools in europe pay less than a thousand euro for school fees and they are way better than these crazy schools in nigeria……
    my niece used to be in that school years back….but she left after two years of what i call pain……i have been there b4 and it is a useless school…..
    outside covenant university that took the same model of oral robert university…….i simply do not think any school in nigeria is what it……….or in west africa is worth it….
    thank God i always rejected studying in nigeria …………..
    if ur family is well to do and they are afraid to send you abroad so u will not get lost with oyibo woman……my advice is that you opt for covenant university…….
    some people have always argued that after those who study in covenant university comes out…that they do not have the right environment to work with in nigeria………but atleast you will know and have the confidence that you acquired a standard education that almost equal to most higher institutions in the western world…..
    covenant university even has good organization and good facilities than some few universities and colleges here in the united states……

    Some of the comments that show up on this blog make one wonder. Is shutting them down going to solve the problem? Is there no protection for currently enrolled students? Those are the things NUC should consider before meting out their irrational suspensions.

I remember when I was in one of these private universities before I gained admission in Federal University: my 1st and 2nd year G.P was 4.92… I now entered Federal Uni, I saw brains, brillant, bright, intelligent and smart students. I now concluded that Nigerian Private Universities 1st Class is eqiivalent to Nigeria federal University 3rd Class… Let them close it… Nonsense!

      So easy to say, but not true at all. I am a student of Madonna university with a second class upper, i can say with all humility that a second class upper in Madonna university is very much equal to the grades from any institution. or do u want to compare the 1st class from ABSU that write examination in law based on objective questions? i used to think that private university grades where lower than federal schools, but i graduated went to the law school in lagos and met a lot of half baked universities such as unilag, unimaid to mention but a few. two Madonna students have graduated from law school with 1st class. so i can proudly say that am proud of my Madonna grade, i can stand head up high and face anybody from anyschooL because i know who i am.

I have done my under grad, nysc, masters and presently on my PhD and some of my friends I started with are still stock there. That school is wack! Federal and state universities are even better in my opinion. I just hope this time it doesn’t go the normal naija way of raising dust over issues and doing nothing about it.

    Was NUC blind to have given them license initially? Are no standards? Are there no regulation for programmes, school fees and so on before initial launch? Imagine the decayed moral standards, falling education standards, produce of spoilt and aimless youths. It is painful that the future of most Nigerian youths is being wasted because of personal gains, grievances and greed of our “leaders” in every sector including education. It is pathetic, shameful, inhuman and consequential. Grievous nemesis will catch up with all school owners and NUC officials who have turned the future of Nigerian children and youths to a “cool” business; even if it is on your death bed. you can not go free, EXCEPT you repent and make restitution.

    Now I think enough with all the hates on madonna students. abegi, is it today we are seeing abbreviations?. If ‘you don’t understand, simply ask questions. Be bold. 😛 Mtschew! and @Esther, yea u right some CU students complain and that’s because they don’t know what they stand to gain by letting themselves get trained spiritually, academically and mentally. And I always feel sorry for such. The environment might be too conducive for them but trust me its not as easy as you thing. I have respect for people who stand for something, irrespective of what the society throws at them, they conciously make efforts to challenge the status quo: and this is what Covenant University has done. Presently at Schlumberger for a while now graduates from Nigerian Unis don’t make it in their tests and interviews except for a few covenant University Students and for this I would say Kudos to the managements of that school and the graduates who are representing them well.

    Wow – I am reading all of these comments and I am thinking… THANK GOD I STUDIED IN THE UK ON HOME STUDENT FEES! The common theme amongst these posts is pure and uninhibited SUFFERING! Bloody hell, paying to receive your OWN transcripts?!?!?! Sorry but the only precursor in UK for receiving your grades is full and final settlement of your tuition fees. Segregated study in the library?!?!?! Aren’t you people adults capable of studying without scoping the opposite sex ? lol You are being treated like children and animals, its a real shame! University should be a place where one is free to increase intellectually and socially, these should be some of the best years of your life NOT THE WORST!
    I know not everybody has the opportunity to study abroad so I am not being flippant or arrogant but I sympathise and pray the education system in Nigeria is reformed for the better and PERMANENTLY! Peace!

    I’m just wondering,why remain in the school when it seems like a crappy place? You are here writing books of lamentation yet you are STILL in the school.
    Did they tie your legs,was your destiny buried on the school soil? You know the school is horrible and you still remain there? Then there’s obviously something wrong with the students. Seems you guys prefer to just ‘manage’ as long as you get a degree and are not really concerned about the quality of education you get.
    If you have an option to leave and you remain there,do not lament! #shikena

    I am a madonna university graduate . To be honest its d greatest mistake I made in my life. NO parent should send their child to that school. The standard of living there is very very terrible. In 100L (Benefactors hostel) we were over 200 in a small hall. There was no electricity in our hostel , we had to go to a charging centre to Iron our clothes and charge our phones. At a point there was also no water. We also shared the same cafeteria with mad people (strange but true). Killing of snakes was the order of the day. In my final year we were around 11 in a normal sized room….. Here are some funny facts about the school;
    1. No use of camera phone.
    2. Jogging every tuesday for boys (cant remember the day for girls)
    3. Going to church is a must.
    4. Girls and boys cant hold hands and talk.
    5. You must not drink in group else you would be labelled as a cultist.
    6. There is a resumption date for everyone. Failure to resume on the specified day would attract a fine of #5000 for each day.
    7. You must sign an exit before leaving the school premises.
    8. Students also ‘kneel down’ and raise-up their hands.(Sounds unbelievable; but its true)
    9. Your property (laptop, bags, phones) is searched at random. Any incriminating material found would lead to expulsion or suspension.
    There are also some crazy fellows called HALL REPS(fellow students) who have the right to do and undo. They could slap and beat one,seize a property of yours and nothing would be done 2 them. They were like ‘PREFECTS’. There are also the ‘VAMPS’ who deserve to be dealt with. They go around gathering information for the school. They lure you into saying bad things about the school and then return the info. to the school authorities, which would most likely reult in expulsion of the invovled student.They also take pictures of students attending parties outside the school… which would also lead 2 expulsion. The academic standard in the school is very poor. Imagine having only 4 lecturers in a department… The equipment s in the labs are quite outdated and very few. The story goes on and on. Its best I stop here. Nothing ever remains hidden forever….

    What a shame to the affected schools, particularly Madonna and Caritas. Little wonder their graduates aren’t respected like their contemporaries from other institutions. My brother spent a year at Madonna sometime 2008. I went to visit him once, only to discover that the hostels had no bunks, no good toilet facilities; all the students had their mattresses on bare unpaved floors. That’s the reason visitors aren’t allowed into the hostels. The classrooms are even worse off. This is just a glorified secondary school. Nothing good exists there as far as I am concerned.


    July 6, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    NUC should be considerate in their regulatory frame work.Something should be done to save parents from heart ache.They should set the standards and ensure that that they are met before granting approvals.This is not the time to scapegoat any UNIVERSITY.There is general decay in the present university system. commentators should stop playing holier than thou.The scenario is even worse in the present govt run universities.MADONA UNIV. however should try to concentrate on academic issues and less on religious matters.Rev.Edeh should be very professional by appointing an independent council and senate while playing an advisory role.BONAVENTURE

    July 6, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    I guess most of those who are talking trash about madonna and caritas are those who were expelled for their many crimes……. I am a graduate of caritas university, working in one of the most reputable organisations in Nigeria and i tell you it has been a jolly good ride for all graduates of ‘father edeh’!!! All the universities in Nigeria save for University of Nigeria, Nsukka, joined together cannot compete with the knowledge and morals that have been instilled into students of these catholic universities that were sanctioned. Mind you folks, its not in the packaging and beautification of schools that a school is rated an A1 but in the content and quality of students the school produces. Graduates of Madonna and Caritas have distinguished themselves in their various fields, i dare someone to quote me wrong. All universities in Nigeria are wishwashy, backstreet and no one on this forum should judge. Who are we to judge when almighty God has not? With all the bribery, cultism, sexual harrassment going on unabated coupled with the less than halfbaked graduates the so called pitiable state and federal universities produce, there is no reason left to ponder why Nigeria has been on the backslide, all thanks to the appalling state of our educational sector. Every university has its dark shadows and these catholic universities licences would surely be returned, no be fr Edeh again???? To those who are still students there, dont lose hope, i went through the same situation u are passing through and the experience has only made me wiser and more focused than my peers. You would surely smile for the beacon light is so near you can touch it. Long live Caritas and Madonna Universities!!! Long live Vry Rev Fr EMP Edeh, Cssp, OFR, The father of African philosophy (undisputed)

That way, one can tell if it is in resonance with some of these comments and what we know about these universities. My take – VCs will fly 2 Abuja, ??? will exchange hands, licenses will be restored, and they’ll all be smiling at detractors. IF U DON’T KNOW THE OFFENCES, YOU WON’T KNOW IF THEY’VE BEEN CORRECTED, PERIOD

    July 8, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    i dont know about other universities but i’m very certain there are a thousand and one reasons why madonna university and all its sister universities should be suspended. now i am not being biased because i have a sibling there and the suspension would definitely affect my family but the truth is, i attended that school and i have nothing good to say about it. people spend millions of naira on school fees and other kind of fees only to get nonsense in return. have you seen the hostels? even animals should not be allowed to live there. a private university that collects as much as madonna does on fees should be able to provide one of the best facilities for its students. the room i lived in before i graduated had no window where you could see the outer part of the building , the two windows we had were connected to the corridor of the hostel so you can imagine, there was no sunlight coming in, no fresh air and i had to stay that way for a year and half. throughout our stay, we used touch lights or our phones as light during the day because they turned on the generator mostly at night. we were in complete darkness. and how much did we pay as accommodation fees? and you know one thing, they never allow parents go into these hostels, so innocent parents drop their children in school not knowing what they go through coz i bet if parents saw all the things going on in the school hostels, they would never let their children stay a day in that school. the cafeterias are no better. imagine how it is to eat in a pigsty, that was how it was. most times, i held my breath while eating or closed my eyes in order not to see something disgusting. then the security guards are allowed to beat students, students who are called hall reps who are meant to be in charge of taking care of the hostels take the opportunity to punish their fellow students and exercise power needlessly. Imagine you were in your final year and your younger sister’s mate in 100level asked you to wash the gutters or cut grasses or do something stupid. I was in that position once. They also expel final year students whose parents have struggled so hard to put them through school on silly accounts such as, the student was caught in a club outside school, or in a party or seen in a hotel or the student took a 3day exeat from school and extended it to 5 days without the school’s permission or a girl was seen talking to a boy a minute after 6pm(by 6pm, boys and girls are not meant to speak to each other, whether he is your brother or she is your sister) or a catholic was found attending the protestant service or the person is suspected to be a cultist or an aristo,. Just crazy things like that. As a catholic school, they(of all) people should know we are all sinners and therefore go wrong sometimes. So other types of punishments could be given for minor cases, not expulsion. where do you expect the person and their family to begin from? So dear VC, mismanagement doesn’t mean “not bringing out results early enough” mismanagement is in itself madonna university”. Even your class room, have you seen your seats? no arm or back rests, even roadside primary schools are better. And when chairs aren’t enough in a classroom, u’ll see innocent children carrying very heavy desks and chairs. And even the hostels they build are not made with good materials. i just hope and pray that no hostel collapses on people’s children the way the fences of the school always collapse. I could go on but I’ld just stop here. And the worst part is our fees are one of the highest in comparison to other private schools. So instead of complaining about previous warnings or whatever from NUC, the VC should use the money students pay and build good hostels, classrooms and basic facilities a good private school should have. if you say I have lied about the things i said GOD will judge you. BTW all of you saying madonna university students can’t speak english or write english are crazy in d medulla. forget about the school and its facilities, many of the students are still outstanding and smarter than those from other private schools not listed here and we would like to see you contest ur intelligence with ours. every school has its best and worst students so concentrate on the matter at hand not on the coolness of the students.

    @ krazydog am not suprised about your allegation on madonna university cos even your name Krazydog shows how responsible you are. But let me tell you one thing stop spreading lies on this medium of communication. Am also a graduate of university and you too well why camera phones were stopped in madonna. Let me remind u incase u don’t know. Sometime in de past students were allowed to have any type of phone until a girl used her camera phone to snap anode female student nude and started distributing her pics all round. The university. You won’t tell the world what led to it krazydog and I ask u if u own a university and u want to uphold morals and descency what is the best thing to do if u have such a case? At least u can use phones in madonna what about covennant university where u can’t even use any phone whether camera, semi camera or non camera? Again u lied when u said students are forced to attend catholic church on sundays. I ask you this question were protestants not worshipping in a church and did muslims not have a designated area where they can pray? Stop being economical with the truth. Go to babcock and covenant and see monopoly in sunday. Service. U talk. About incriminating things on ur laptop and again u give me another room to question ur intelligence. Cos already u used the word incriminating and I wonder why incriminating things will be left without sanctions. Where were. You when students were beheaded in igbenidion university last month? Is this the kind of freedom you want in madonna? God forbid we don’t need such

I am not a graduate of Madonna or Caritas, but I have met a few of them and also been opportuned to weigh the standard. Believe me those TWO schools are one of the greatest mistakes NUC will ever make for approving them in the first place. No doubt maybe the first 3 sets were ok oh but chai them no try. Truth be told shikena!

The remaining 5 percent are the rest of the students that are working for the school. Word is around that he went to abuja with a bulletproof car filled with money to bribe Them and buy their silence….NUC PLLLEEEEAAAAAZ COME TO OUR RESCUE!?!?!? We are suffering and dying in silence….my properties have been seized all because I stayed Back home when I was sick and did not come back on their supposed resumption date! Ridiculous but true….peoples futures are ruined, hopes are being dashed away, and dreams fade away like smoke.

    NUC should further probe collection of 20,000 Naira from students each time to require transcript. Imagine a students that desire to seek admission for masters programme to such amount . As a parent we suffered emotional torture each time our wards are subjected to fines and the wickedness of one Philo who is more powerful than the Vice Chancellor.

    all emphasis seems to b on Madonna here. lets call a spade a spade. I am an alumni of Madonna university and d famous ABU. I also have an msc from UNN. d truth about this matter is dat the whole educational system in Nigeria is fucked. NUC needs to b overhauled. I started in Madonna in d yr 2000 nd all I did was complain. I discovered dat Madonna actually had a better EDUCATIONAL standard wen I went for my second degree at ABU. Der, d school was more of a religious/political camp Dan an academic institution. D worst was UNN who had a lot of illiterate lecturers. The truth still remains that our educational system in dis country needs to b overhauled, NUC inclusive. I noticed dat people from public schools like attacking those in d private schools. it is not worth it all d schools are thesame. SUBSTANDARD.

    If all you see and report about a school is all negative, then, it is a destructive critism and not to be taken seriously. But if what you see and report is balanced (good and bad), it is constructive and needs maximum attention

    It is a good step by NUC of course but, why is it only private institutions? What of some state universities which does not deserve accreditation. Lets look at so called LAUTECH that is now politicalized. I don’t see the reason why Faculty of Agric was granted accreditation, bcos, no enough facilities, no standard lecture rooms that can accommodate admitted students and students who wrote the exams came out with AWAITING RESULTS and nothing was done to cater for the so called undergraduate students of this faculty. Imposition of course materials of N1000 and above and employment of lazy and poor academic staff who were not ready to teach the students accordingly.

    The big hoo and cries are all based on the freedom to be nude and have unabated sexual immorality in the name of being a student. I do agree that the infractructure need urgent repairs, particularly the hostels that have no windows and students are in darkness in the day times. This is very true and with people of that area, they see nothing wrong so far as money is made. This is common with the Igbo man, even activities under cover of the Church are no exceptions.
    Discipline is material to the sucess of any child. So, if you wish to be free like Igbinedion University Students, then go there, one of the spoilt brats kingdom, people who takes pride in taking expensive cars of their fathers to show off, when the father who knows the value would not venture taking it to the places the irresponsible child would do.
    Band of Camera phone, who do not know the ponography with which these phones are used to promote in the classrooms while lectures are going on. The aim is to distract others. It is also common knowledge that Private Universities are home to those children who could not make the post Jamb Examinations in the Public Universities when they have successfully indurged in multiply registrations to ensure an agent writes the paper, while the never do well services as a (supercargo) in the examination room to ensure his agent was truly there and filled his Jamb number in his answer script in place of the agent to ensure he scales through.
    Very few students were sent to the private Universities by the parents to ensure they graduate in record time for the incisant strikes of ASUU which never results in nothing. Because, ASUU itself is a Blacksmith that makes Knives, but never use a good knife. The Union called ASUU never use professional Industrial Relations Experts to canvass their needs. Then, they strike without ends with little or no results. Moreover, the wickedness of the large number of Lecturers in the Universities would not allow the kindest Government to accede to their demands. Rapists, extortionists abound without any person within the system challenging. They are Gods to themselves in the Universities and do expect that grace of God will smile on them. Obasanjo knows them better than any other leader in this country. He gave all Nigerian Federal Universities good Money in the 1970s when students from other countries were many in Nigerian Universitises. They all embezzles the money. University of Lagos used 2.5M to build a Gate that would at that time would not cost more than N500,000 even if Julius Berger were to build it in one month. University of Benin went mad with its money in developing an electricity system that never worked. They tried to buy the State of the Art Telephone System for GENERAL Electric Co. Ltd, but eat the money for external Cable Network. Used the old cable system and the Telephone System died a natural death. All other Universities in collaboration with their Directors of Physical Planning chopped all the money. Abuja University is undergoing same corrupt practices that the Federal Capital University is less than a glorified public primary school in terms of infratructure. We are not ashame of ourselves.
    Everywhere is filled with the rot of the times. The student crying for infrastructural dificiencies above are given the opportunity to exercise the freedom of wawardness, they will be the first to destroy any good thing installed in the name of riot. Where in the developed world students resorts to destroying the equipment of an institution meant for their own benefit. Only Nigeria we have such mad people. You have go to learn , be disciplined and follow the rules and you will be better Of at the end of your years in the school.

    Who licensed these schools in the first place? That is the crux of the matter.
    We see private universities mushrooming all over the place yet regulatory authorities are issuing licences like NAFDAC registration numbers. I doubt more than 4 of these private universities are worthy of their licences. When you consider the fact that there are over 40 of them, you’ll understand how useless NCC is.

    Lots of comments… All I av 2 say is to know a man that’s gonna end up great, he or she must b able 2 build up himself into a star even from a dirty gutter… U don’t need perfection b4 u can b somebody, be it private institution, federal, states, polythechnic, college of education, technical, home study or abroad, dat shuldnt b an excuse atall. One shuld use wateva he has 2 build up something 4 himself cos uv got jst ur OWN TIME, u can’t spend som1 else’s. Wen one finds himself in dis kind of situation “like madonna’s” u jst av 2 use dat unique brain of urs 2 take the nxt step which isn’t d same for every1, it always depend…as long as ur skul isn’t closed down… Mind u, lots of federal uni graduates “even 1st class products r out dere jobless nd u can possibly find some private uni graduates “nt even a 2nd class product” working in well known companies…it all ends in diff ways, no 1 wants 2 no aw u did it, it’s if u made it or nt dat counts… Every man has his own story
