14 Nov FG moves against illegal satellite campuses of foreign varsities
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu said the Federal Government will no longer tolerate the operations of illegal satellite campuses and affiliations with foreign unaccredited universities,” implying that the days of “Boys Quarter” degrees are over and for good.”
He said this is in line with the present administration’s quest for ensuring that Nigerian students obtain foreign qualifications that are internationally competitive, and of high academic and moral excellence.
The Minister spoke on Thursday in Abuja when he inaugurated the 34th meeting of the National Standing Committee (NSC) on the evaluation of foreign qualifications.
He said the Committee was constituted for the purpose of determining the Nigerian equivalent of certificates and degrees of foreign institutions.
Adamu directed the Committee to ensure that “the quality ground work already laid for evaluation is progressively improved upon in such a manner that inspires national and international confidence”.
He expressed hope that the outcome of the Committee’s proceedings will “improve the protocol of evaluating foreign education certificates and other related issues.”
