Nigerian Government has announced plans to crackdown on dozens of illegal higher institutions, including 66 universities and 68 polytechnics.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made remarks on it at a media conference on Saturday in Abuja, where he provided the list of 66 illegal universities and 68 polytechnics, monotechnics and specialised technical and vocational institutions and said the proliferation of illegal higher institutions especially, universities, has become a source of embarrassment to the government.


He cited greed, corruption and insufficient access for the large pool of qualified UTME candidiates as the major factors responsible foe the recent upsurge in illegal institutions.
