    Lmao!!! School, music and church is business for Nigerians even those that can’t sing have got talent. Just the way Edo State Governor bursted a teacher without a certificate and she could not even read her own “age of declaration” paper smh.. The names along says it all.. There’s nothing like a government/ public institution. All these schools existed after I left the country smh.. I hope they get it together.

    Only in Nigeria would someone pay to graduate from a uni without verifying the status of the uni. Only in Nigeria will sons of men open mammoth centers at will, without due regard for process and the institutions that regulate, only to deceive and defraud thousands whose futures now lie waste. Only in Nigeria can something of this nature happen at this level. Where was NUC when these fraud centers were operating? Where was NUC when Nigeria’s students needed to receive a legit list of universities? Talk about gross incompetence at all levels and significant deficiencies and inefficiencies. Utter systemic decay! Where were the regulators at the federal and state levels or even local levels? Who had the back of Nigeria’s desperate students when they were being defrauded? Someone saw those centers for fraudulence being constructed and launched and opened for business. Who from any of the Ministries of Education at all levels of government bothered to ask the question “what is this center?” Massive Sigh!

    This has always been the case. The satelite campuses were scrapped up some years ago. I guess there are no task forces or adhoc committees in place to ensure they stay scrapped.
