FG bans more universities from Ghana, UK, US operating in Nigeria

The Federal Government has announced the banning and suspension of several universities from Ghana, the UK, and the US that were operating campuses in Nigeria.

This action comes after the suspension of accreditation and evaluation of degree certificates from Benin Republic and Togo following an investigative report by the Daily Nigerian Newspaper.

The investigative report detailed how a reporter obtained a degree from Cotonou University within six weeks and participated in the mandatory one-year scheme organised by the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.
