The National Universities Commission, NUC, has released the official list of 58 fake universities operating in Nigeria at the moment.

 

This comes as the commission also disclosed that it was investigating eight other universities for running illegal degree programs in the country.

 

 

 

To this end, it has warned people seeking admission into universities against patronizing any of the institutions, saying doing such action would be at their risks as certificates obtained from them will not give them the opportunity to serve in the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, or employment in the country
