Recommended Posts

Following certain questionable degrees obtained by Nigerians from foreign institutions, the Ministry of Education has set up a 16-man committee to vet all certificates obtained from foreign institutions by Nigerians.



According to the minister of Education, Adamu Adamu the members of the committee will cut across the 6 geo-political zones in the country who will in turn vet about 40,000 certificates.

The committee was inaugurated by the Minister at the 33rd meeting of the National Standard Committee on Evaluation and Accreditation of Foreign Qualifications.


In the words of the minister, “according to a preliminary assessment by the Ministry of Education, no fewer than 40,000 Nigerians were either holding or currently studying in various tertiary institutions abroad.”

He said, “degrees from questionable institutions, especially from countries such as Benin Republic, Togo and Cameroon, had already been identified by the ministry.”

He said, “There is a need to assess the quality of foreign academic qualifications obtained by Nigerians in order to determine their Nigerian equivalence for the purpose of further studies and employment.”
“The recommendations that will be given by the committee will prove crucial to the well-being and future of those that acquired the qualifications and foreign certificates.”
