ICPC, NUC name 41 illegal varsities, addresses


Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the National University Commission (NUC) have started joint operations nationwide to crack down on illegal degree awarding institutions.

Chairman of ICPC/ NUC Task team, Professor Olu Aina, disclosed that there were 67 illegal institutions but 57 had so far been identified.

Forty one of them have operational addresses while others were without known fixed addresses.

On whether the ICPC and NUC would compensate students in the illegal universities, Aina said the students had no prerequisite qualifications before being admitted.

However, he said the NUC would “guide us appropriately”

Aina said in a statement: “The essence of this statement is to let you know that in keeping with its warning last week, ICPC has today Wednesday 15th May, 2013 commenced a nation-wide operation to seal the premises of identified illegal “Universities”, seize their properties, make arrests, and execute such other actions it deems fit.

“This action is the first in the series of implementing the outcome of an ongoing ICPC/NUC University System Study and Review, for which ICPC sort and obtained a Federal High Court Warrant to crack down on illegal degree-awarding mills.

“An Inter-Agency Task Team comprising of ICPC, the National Universities Commission, the Police and the Nigeria Civil Defence Corps will continue the exercise until all corrupt practices and impunity associated with the physical existence of such illegal institutions cease completely.

“We know it is a worldwide phenomenon which occurs wherever demand for educational or other services far outweigh supply but we are determined to eliminate it from critical sectors like education in Nigeria.

“Members of the public are advised to visit the NUC website for the list of these illegal degree-awarding institutions and centres. A lot of them do not have fixed addresses while some have become itinerant, changing locations continuously to beat the law.

“School proprietors and landlords, by this notice, are advised to be wary of lending or hiring out their premises for these “after-school- hours and weekend” institutions to avoid having their premises being sealed or seized.

“We solicit your cooperation and that of all well-meaning Nigerians, including Civil Societies, parents and prospective students to continue providing us with relevant information to help check corrupt activities that mortgage the future of our youths.
