58 fake universities operating in Nigeria
According to the National Universities Commission (NUC), 58 fake universities were carrying out illegal operations in Nigeria, while another eight were running illegal degree programs.
The NUC has warned individuals that seeking admission into any of the 58 universities would be at their own risk and that the National Youth Service Corps will not accept them, nor will they be able to be employed in the country.
The affected universities have apparently been shut down for going against the national minimum standard by the federal government. The universities include the University of Accountancy and Management Studies, Christians of Charity American University of Science and Technology, and the University of Industry.
