The National Universities Commission, NUC has just announced the suspension of the operating licenses of seven private universities in Nigeria. This is allegedly due to violations of the NUC guide for school facilities and academic programmes.
The suspended universities are Lead City University, Caritas University, Joseph Ayo Babalola University, Tansian University, Madonna University, Achievers University and Obong University.
Once these issues are corrected with the universities, the suspension will be lifted. But for now it implies they can’t admit new students nor continue lectures for old students until further notice.
This comes just days after part-time programs for all universities have been suspended.
