Nigerian govt to shut down 66 illegal Universities, polytechnics Mallam Adamu Adamu1 300x200

Nigerian Government has announced plans to crackdown on dozens of illegal higher institutions, including 66 universities and 68 polytechnics.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made the remarks at a media conference on Saturday in Abuja, where he provided the list of 66 illegal universities and 68 polytechnics, monotechnics and specialised technical and vocational institutions.

Adamu said the proliferation of illegal higher institutions especially, universities, has become a source of embarrassment to the government.

According to him, some of the major factors responsible for the recent upsurge in the number of illegal institutions were greed and endemic corruption

He also cited insufficient access for the large pool of qualified candidates that sit for the yearly Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations organised by Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board as one of the reasons.

He said, “I want to use this opportunity to direct all regulatory agencies in the public education sector, namely, The National Universities Commission
(NUC), National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), and the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), to work with relevant security agencies to immediately crackdown hard on all illegal tertiary institutions within their jurisdictions.

“Promoters of such institutions should immediately be apprehended and prosecuted. Let me warn those promoting illegal institutions that the days of treating promoters of such
institutions with kid gloves are over. Anyone caught in the act will be severely punished

“Most of the unapproved higher institutions are usually manned by unqualified and unrecognized personnel. While some of the illegal providers are operating illegal institutions based in Nigeria, some are on-line in unapproved linkages and affiliations with substandard foreign institutions that have no accreditation or recognition of regulatory bodies either in Nigeria or their home countries.

“They have no admission quota, they run unaccredited courses with practically no standards. Their products are half baked and unemployable.”

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about
    a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
    into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Speaking to newsmen at a press conference on Thursday, the minister also revealed that states are to share N649 billion – the final tranche of the Paris Club Refund.

However, she noted that debtor-states will have to settle their debts soon, adding that the Federal Government plans to begin the final phase of the debt refund.

“The total sum of N649.434 billion was verified by the ministry as the outstanding balance to be refunded to the state governments,” Ahmed said.

She also revealed that the payments made by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CNB) as at March stood at N691.560 billion.

On Nigeria’s growing debt profile, Ahmed stated that the debt increase from N12.2 trillion to N23.0 trillion is by design.

The minister lamented that generating revenue was a problem for the Buhari-led government.

On the national minimum wage, Mrs Ahmed said:

“The financial implications have been worked out by the presidential committee that was set up and they have submitted their report to the President and the President has directed the report to us. We have looked at the report and what we are working on now is how we can finance the new minimum wage.
“Apart from the increase of the minimum wage from N18, 000 to N30,000, there is also a consequential adjustment that we have to negotiate with the labour unions.
‘The total financial implications will be determined after negotiations. The negotiation will determine what every other staff that is above the minimum wage will get. It could be a flat amount or a progression.
“The other aspect that should be clear is that there is an increase for the NYSC as well because NYSC, by its Act, is designed that they earn the minimum wage. So, NYSC allowance also has to increase to N30, 000. So, I cannot give you projections right now because the negotiations are not yet concluded.
