EFCC to crackdown on unauthorized Nigerian universities operating without license



EFCC to crackdown on unauthorized universities operating without licenseActing chairman of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, disclosed in Abuja that plans have been concluded with the National Universities Commission (NUC) to crackdown on unauthorised universities operating without the federal government license.

He lamented activities of such illegal campuses and assured that his agency will partner the NUC in cleaning the university system by taking the federal government anti-corruption fight to the universities.

He said,

I was with the NUC Executive Secretary to partner with them in sensitising students against corruption. We have agreed to set up a task force to crackdown on mushroom universities collecting money from parents. The number of universities has gone up; we will close them down. I have also appealed to NUC to sensitise the youths against corruption. We are targeting the youths.”

Magu regretted the high level of corruption going on in higher institutions has not been properly checked and re-affirmed that no amount of criticism towards the commission will deter them from succeeding.

Magu appealed to the media to lead the anti-graft battle, urging the public to take advantage of the whistleblowing policy, Daily post reports.

    ” Don’t trouble, trouble until trouble, troubles you.” Ibrahim Mugu what is the problem with you? Do you think you’re above the law? If you continue on this path. You will be arrested and prosecuted. If found guilty, you and your partners in crime will go to jail for a very long time for acting outside the mandate of EFCC your employer. My advice to the owners of the Universities in question is to be prepared to document via video all EFCC official activities whenever they showed up on your premises. Arrest and handover all the EFCC officials who showed up on your premises to the police. Do not handover the original copies of your video recordings to the Police. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

    When they are done they should please check Primary & Nursery schools. Looks like one is springing up on every street! I am afraid of what goes on behind some of these walls. If we can have fake doctors in this country, I can’t imagine the amount of fake teachers we have. Our country has so many problems, the biggest being a lack of integrity. 🙁
