List of Illegal Universities In Nigeria By NUC in 2021

The National University Commission NUC has released a list of illegal universities operating in the country.

It is no longer news to hear young adults narrating their ordeals as to how they ended up schooling in some universities with no legal recognition from NUC. Hence, wasting lots of redeemable time and resources, largely due to lack of information.

consequently, this list will help save parents/guardians and candidates from falling prey to these illegal universities and wasting time and funds they would have used for other productive ventures.
