Maryam Abacha university degrees not recognised – NUC

The National Universities Commission has warned that degrees obtained from Maryam Abacha American University of Niger Republic (MAAUN) are sub-standard and will not be accepted in Nigeria, saying henceforth such certificates would not be recognised as a means of seeking employment or doing other legitimate business in Nigeria.
The NUC Director of Information and Public Relations, Malam Ibrahim Yakasai, handed down the warning while briefing newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.

According to him, NUC has been inundated with inquiries from some Nigerian students who have been offered admission in MAAUN on part time with a graduation time of four semesters.

He listed some of the programmes as Nursing, Medical Laboratory Science, Public Health, among others.
He explained that “in Nigeria, the duration for a full-time degree programme is not less than three years for direct entry and at least six years for part-time.
He said:
“Professional programmes in Science, Engineering and Health Sciences-Nursing, Medical Laboratory Science and Public Health are not offered on part-time basis in Nigeria.
“More so, their graduation time is far less than the graduation time in Nigeria-they admit students with HND on direct entry and they give them two years to do a degree in Nursing or Health Sciences.
“We wish to restate that as the only Quality Assurance Agency for universities in Nigeria, NUC is maintaining its stand that degrees from MAAUN will 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.

The NUC which also discredited all part- time cross boarder education in Nigeria, therefore warned citizens against patronising online universities which offer academic programmes without physical contact with their students.
 
According to him, the Nigerian constitution has no backing or recognition for such degrees obtained online, insisting that students look for cheap means of acquiring qualifications to avoid competition at home.
He said,
“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.”
He expressed displeasure that rather than addressing the issues raised by NUC, MAAUN resorted to campaign of calumny against the commission.

The NUC spokesman advised parents to always crosscheck with the commission before sending their wards to foreign institutions.

On his part, the NUC Director of Academic Standards, Dr Gidado Kumo, urged students to be wary of Houdegbe North American University, Cotonou, Benin Republic.

He said that the institution opeprated in Badagry and Kano, then relocated to Jos; but was recently running Bachelors Degree in Public Health in Gombe State.
“We have made it very clear that any degree obtained in Houdegbe North American University within the shores of Nigeria is not accepted.
“In Februray 2015, we had cause to request for a joint assessment visit to the university with the Council for Legal Education.
“At the moment, the institution has been graduating over 600 students from its law faculty whereas in Nigeria, the highest output from any law faculty is about 200.
“We requested a joint accreditation visit but we were flatly refused by Houdegbe North American University.
“So, our decision is that no law graduate of Houdegbe University will be moblised for the BL programme with the Council for Legal Education.”

Too bad a lot of people are going to get fake Cert. from this Uni. They should do well to be accredited.

Hmmm! Hope this conclusion is drawn from an extensive investigation.
It came too fast
A rush from the past
That seems not to last
Like a lightening flash
It became a figment of memory.

I don't understand this honestly. If a university is operating illegally in Nigeria or has its courses unaccredited what do you do? Do you deal with the university or its graduates? The NUC should do the needful which is closing down and prosecuting the promoters of the university. Why allow them to operate and warn students not to enrol there? Sometimes these regulatory agencies just think through their anus. Obviously, they have collected bribes from the universities that is why they can't move against them. I concede however that NUC does not have any powers over MAUN which is based in Niger Republic.

Other countries believe in the quality of graduates from this country, if things continue like this, then those foreign countries might not take our graduates again, besides most of these universities are private and they are after their money 'ego'

Why allow substandard Universities to continue extorting innocent students if your claims are true? Shouldn't they be given a period to meet the standard or be shut down? Lots of private Universities do not bother to upgrade their departments to required standard and in the end, its the students that suffer as they graduate with degrees that will not be recognized. Some are even made to switch to courses very different from what they enrolled to study in their final year simply because the University did not bother to do their part after collecting school fees. Institutions that fail to meet the standard/pass accreditation twice should be fined heavily instead of taking it out on students.

A good Government does not issue policies like this especially policies that will have far reaching effects on the future of the citizenry. The students applyingfor aadmissions may not know all these issues on approvals or substandard. The number of admission into the Nigerian Universitues are far much below the numbers that sit for the examinations. Every year about 1.2m students pay fr and sit for the JAMB - UTM and less than 200000 students are offered admissions into the available spaces, and by various means does it then mean that the remaining 1m students who could not get any space for whatever reason/s are failures? Whit all the corrosive corruption within the systems.
