Not less than eight foreign universities from the Benin Republic, Niger, and Cameroon have been banned by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) from taking part in the 2021 Batch A orientation course.
According to a report by Daily Nigerian, most of these schools, otherwise called Cotonou universities, award degrees a few months after matriculation.
Although the NYSC leadership did not state the reason for this drastic decision in its circular (dated Friday, March 5) to state/FCT coordinators, it informed all D&R and foreign-trained verification officers in states to take note.
The NYSC is yet to reveal its reason for this stern decision.
