The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, on Monday said some private universities were aiding academic corruption and decadence in the country.
Oloyede spoke in Abuja at the opening ceremony of a two-day summit on Nigerian private universities, themed, “Private University Education Delivery in Nigeria; Challenges and Opportunities,” organised by the National Universities Commission.
He said, “The government opened up the space a few years ago for private operators to come and complement government’s efforts at providing university education to Nigerians, but it seems like the aim is gradually being defeated.
“When you visit some private universities, you will be ashamed for Nigeria. From the structures, you will know that something is wrong.
