The National Universities Commission has suspended the licenses of some Private Universities in Nigeria. The universities affected are said to have fallen short of the required standard for the academic activities on their various campuses.
The affected universities are Lead City, Caritas, Joseph Ayo Babalola, Tansian, Madonna, Achievers and Obong.
The Director of Press and Public Relations of NUC, Mallam Ibrahim Yakassai, stated this yesterday.
A top source, who pleaded anonymity, said 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,” the source said
