Speaking at a public lecture organised to mark the first Founder’s Day celebration of Al-Hikmah University, Ilorin, the NUC Deputy Director, Ashafa Ladan, said that the Needs Assessment report on Nigerian universities shows that less than 50 per cent of lecturers have doctorate degrees.
Ladan warned that some private universities proprietors would “either have their operating licences suspended or undergo forensic auditing due to their failure to put in place proper structure for governance and administration as contained in their academic brief and the university law.”
The NUC director added that profit motive made some proprietors to violate procedures and requirements in an effort to begin lucrative and marketable courses before maturity period.
