The National Universities Commission (NUC) has revealed that only 25 universities have been fully accredited in Nigeria.
The 25-varsity list surprisingly excludes the best-ranked varsities in the country as it is made up of institutions that have their courses 100 per cent accredited.
The full list was released in the NUC’s 2021 universities ranking, and excludes top institutions like University of Ibadan, University of Lagos, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, among others.
