NUC names 198 federal, state, private universities in Nigeria [Full list]

A list of all federal, state and private institutions has been published by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

This was stated in the commission’s October bulletin, which detailed the commission’s work.

The NUC had committed to keeping Nigerians informed about accredited universities so that they would not fall victim to fraudsters and other unscrupulous forces.

The country has a number of illicit tertiary schools that deceive uneducated individuals by claiming to offer certified courses.

In the breakdown, there are currently 45 federal universities, 54 in states and 99 private, a total of 198.

Meanwhile, NUC Executive Secretary, Prof Abubakar Rasheed has met with Vice-Chancellors and Sustainable Procurement, Environment and Social Standards Enhancement (SPESSE) Centre Leaders.

The World Bank project has a span of five years with an $80million budget. It seeks to institutionalise the procurement, environmental and social standards in Nigeria.

While 37.5 percent has been earmarked for technical assistance, 62.5 percent would be disbursed based on performance using Disbursement Link Indicators (DLI).

Six tertiary institutions will run courses for the project that will benefit 25,240 candidates.

They are the University of Lagos, Federal University of Technology Owerri, University of Benin, Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi, and Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Bauchi.
