  18. Pls help solve these riddles:Has NUC power of approval/accreditation over non-Nigerian universities? Is it not the Fed. Min.of Educ. that has responsibility for RECOGNISING (or otherwise) the approval/accreditation of the HOME government? NUC should publish the addresses/locations of Houdegbe North American University Benin in Nigeria for the sake of the current 5,000+ Nigerian students of this university (not counting we graduates) & to clear the rumor that this university is being blackmailed. Since a university cant be hidden, cant the police arrest, prosecute & shut down campuses? And how come, as the records authoritatively confirm, ALL Nigerian graduates of this “illegal” university are admitted for NYSC every year after clearance by the Fed. Min. of Education?
