The NUC had earlier suspended the operational licenses of seven private universities

The National Universities Commission’s decision to suspend the operational licences of seven private universities in the country has been applauded by the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN).

Speaking on Saturday in Lagos, Solomon Onaghinon, the Secretary-General of the association said that the NUC?s decision was aimed at sanitising the education system. 

The commission had on July 4 suspended the operational licences of seven private universities for allegedly not meeting up to its set targets on school facilities and academic programmes.

The suspended universities are Achievers, Caritas, Joseph Ayo Babalola, Lead City, Madonna, Obong and Tansian.

Malam Ibrahim Yakassai, the NUC spokesman in announcing the suspension had said that the action was because the NUC wanted “to continually work on the current standard of Nigerian Universities”.

Onaghinon said, “I appreciate the NUC?s position to take appropriate action before the affected institutions get worse.

“There is the need to shape better students if our country must grow and develop,” he said.

He said that the declining standards of education in the country was worrisome, and added that if nothing was done to correct it today, it would affect the future of the people and the nation.
