DISCOVER THE NUC APPROVED PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES IN NIGERIA

There are several universities in Nigeria claiming to be accredited by the National Universities Council (NUC) when in fact, they are not. Unfortunately, many people don’t get to know this until after they have invested their resources trying to study in such intuitions.  Accreditation is done by the NUC as they are the only organization in Nigeria with this responsibility. They evaluate Nigerian universities to ensure that their documents meet the requirements of the minimum academic standard (MAS) which are a benchmark for evaluating quality education in Nigeria.

Accreditation of academic programs aims to ensure that the requirements of MAS are attained, maintained, and enhanced. The National Universities Commission (NUC), serves as the regulatory body for universities in Nigeria and is also in charge of ensuring all private universities in Nigeria meet the benchmark of minimum academic standard requirements. Any private university in the country that is not accredited is being run illegally and if found out, would be shut down.

Southwestern University is a private institute established with the vision of being pioneers in mentoring, modelling and excellence. The school emphasizes the use of knowledge to benefit its students who in turn are expected to impact society positively. Southwestern University is one of the top universities officially accredited and recognized by the national universities commission, Nigeria.

 DISCOVER THE NUC APPROVED PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES IN NIGERIA

The number of Nigerian youth seeking admission to higher institutions is clearly a lot more than the publicly owned tertiary institutions in the country can handle. As a result of this, private universities in Nigeria over the years have grown to be immensely important when compared to Federal and State schools in the country. Several private universities have sprouted up across the country while many are still under construction. However, as important as they are to the country’s development, not all private universities in Nigeria possess NUC accreditation/license to operate.

Following the establishment of the first private university in Nigeria, the National Universities Commission has been issuing licenses to individuals, corporate bodies, and religious bodies to establish private universities in the country.

Many people often overlook the necessity to verify an institution’s accreditation status, instead, their initial queries revolve around such issues as to whether the institution is the best private university in Nigeria for law or the best private medical university in Nigeria or how much the university demands for tuition? However, none of these matters if the university has not been accredited by the appropriate body. It is very important to make sure a private university is NUC accredited before enrolling yourself, child, or ward into it.

Due to the increase of fake private universities in Nigeria, the National Universities Commission (NUC) decided to release the full list of approved private degree-awarding institutions in Nigeria.

Here are universities approved by the NUC

The song sold over 13 million copies, even more than any of the Beetles classic songs. Together with his band for a couple of years, Rocafil Jazz, he recorded several  other songs though none of them was able to match the success and greatness of “Sweet Mother”. His style of music is known as Highlife. Unfortunately, the singer died in 1997. Join me as I take you through his early life, music career, personal life and some of his songs.

PRINCE NICO MBRAGA EARLY LIFE

The “Sweet Mother” crooner was born on the 1st of January in 1950 to a Nigerian mother and a Cameroonian father.

When he was still young, his father bought a Phillips radio and from there he listened and grew interest in music. He listened to songs like Bobby Benson’s Taxi Driver and Rex Lawson’s Yellow Sisi. He spent a couple of years in Cameroon growing up in the late 60s during the Nigerian Civil War. While in school, he learnt how to play several instruments such as conga, xylophone, drums and the electric guitar.

Eventually the hit came with “Sweet Mother”. It came at a time when their recording contract had just been dropped by EMI. They got signed with an Onitsha based label named “Rogers All Stars”.
