• The National Universities Commission has warned Nigerian students and parents against patronising Maryam Abacha American University, Niger Republic, noting that the commission had been inundated with enquiries from some Nigerian students who had been offered admission in the university.

    The Director of Information and Public Relations in NUC, Ibrahim Yakasai, who made this disclosure, said that the concerned students were offered admissions on part-time with a graduation time of four semesters for programmes like Nursing, Medical Laboratory Science, Public Health among others.

    “In Nigeria the duration for a full time degree programme is not less than three years for direct entry and at least six years for part-time, while professional programmes in Science, Engineering and Health Sciences including Nursing, Medical Laboratory Science and Public Health are not offered on part-time basis in Nigeria. Also, all part- time cross boarder education in Nigeria is not allowed,” he explained

    Yakasai further lamented that the university admitted Nigerian students who did not have the basic requirements to gain admission into the nation’s tertiary institutions in addition to running courses such as Nursing, Medical Laboratory Science on part-time basis which, according to him, was not acceptable.

    While disclosing that Ghana National Accreditation Board (NAB) had banned 53 tertiary institutions in Ghana some of which Nigerian students run to from advertising and admitting students due to lack of qualification, Yakasai noted that all countries were at liberty to accept or reject certificates from any foreign university they felt was operating below their acceptable standards.
