Degrees From Maryam Abacha University, Not Recognized- NUC

The National Universities Commission, NUC, through the commission’s
Director of Information and Public Relations, Mr. Ibrahim Usman Yakasai, yesterday
evening said the Maryam Abacha American University, in Niger Republic, is not
an institution recognized by the body; hence the degrees awarded to students of
the university will not be accepted in Nigeria. He also spoke about online universities,
asking Nigerians to desist from them, saying degrees from such universities at
the moment will also not be accepted in Nigeria.
“We wish to restate that as the only quality assurance
agency for universities in Nigeria, the NUC is maintaining its stand that
degrees from Maryam Abacha University will not be accepted in Nigeria”, the
commission stated.
About online degrees;
“Nigeria will not recognise online degrees. Online degrees
are not accepted in Nigeria at the moment; the Nigerian constitution does not
even give recognition to such degrees. Those who ran out of Nigeria for study
outside this country are those looking for cheaper degrees. It is either they
cannot pass the examinations or they do not possess the minimum entry
qualifications,” the commission also stated.
