    National Open university , should be included. Cos they certainly don’t know what they doing there , they are only interested in making money. I pity people who go there for 1st degree courses. It’s a waste of resources.

    So what will happen to the students who attended these schools. I believe that these schools should not have been allowed to operate in the first place. There should some sort of provision to assist students that graduated from these universities. I do not think it is there fault that they are attended fake schools. Fake should not exist in the first place. More stringent rules should be in place to even an erect a building let a university

      Lol you must not be Nigerian or maybe you haven’t been to Nigeria in a while. Do you know your country?
      Well hopefully it changes with the new govt.
      They probably will still get jobs to be honest so.

      Abi ooo… these universities cld not possibly have accreditation so there is no way I feel for ppl hu go to such schools. .. a lot of nigerians are so hungry for “foreign sounding” education that they will be attending universities like “atlanta” or London s… haba.. common sense now.

      Lmao! Exactly my point. A lot of folks attend such schools thinking yes, we they get there, they wouldn’t start all over or it will be equivalent to the standard here. Sorry to burst their bubbles. They always start from somewhere after these results are evaluated. I always wonder how American/London schools are been certified over there smh. Some of these names tho “Sweet baby Jesus help my people”.

    NUC publishes all its accredited schools and courses on their websites (I don’t know if it updated regularly) Any one that enrolled in the above schools should have checked. This JAMB post UTME has created hardship which has lead to this kind of exploitation . All you needed in the past was score above the cutoff mark for your course and university and you where guaranteed a first or a second choice plus the option of supplementary admission. NOW people struggle to find money to take JAMB and also struggle to pay for P UTME . I just tire.
