The Nigerian government through the federal ministry of education on Tuesday, January 9, launched a probe of degree racketeering in foreign and local private universities.

A seven-member inter-ministerial committee will investigate the allegations within eight weeks.

Education minister, Prof. Tahir Mamman, mandated the committee to review the role of any ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) or their officials in the facilitation of the recognition and procurement of fake certificates in question.

The committee includes members such as the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede; the Minister of Youths, Jamila Bio-Ibrahim; and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, among others.

One of the committee’s key terms of reference is to examine private universities established in the last 15 years.

The focus is on assessing whether these institutions have the required facilities, appropriate management structures, adequate funding for programs, and the necessary staff (full-time, contract, adjunct, visiting, among other types).

The National Universities Commission (NUC) periodically conducts accreditation exercises, but this additional scrutiny aims to ensure compliance with specific criteria.

Nigeria currently has a total of 147 private universities, as indicated on the NUC website.

Checks by the Nation reveals that 107 of these private universities were established within the last 15 years.
