Here are 58 illegal Nigerian universities that are not accredited by the National Univeristies Commission (NUC). Students are advised to not seek admission into these schools as the certificate you get from these illegal universities would be considered invalid.
We all know what it means when a particular course is not accredited, in an institution, you wouldn’t graduate right? Not more or less an institution itself that is not accredited or acknowledged it is therefore as good as not attending a higher institution at all.
Many of us don’t care about dong some basic research before we apply for a particular school of our choice. This might bring about being a victim of circumstance in this case. Because even after spending years in school all is vanity.
