  • WoW!!! finally dey caught us… useless nigeria universities, that shud imply to Engineering especially… they will continue to sort and sort and sort till they die and rot in hell… literacy level is killing da nation and da worst will come wit dis generation of graduates… shebi na we we 4 dis 9ja

  • They should ask those people that stopped Uniben medical school from admitting students by writing the UK universities not to accept graduates from that school. That was the beginning of this problem.

  • I hope Nigerian government will do something about this- And our president will adjusts his food and catering allocation against 2012 from about a #1billion to #1million. And invest on education, instead of spending so much on his stomach!

  • Nigeria universities has seen nothing yet, those who can do well in medicine wil b given other courses and medicine will be offered only to the rich…. Its all as a result of corruption.. Fucking bull shit

  • I like dis,all d university lecturer are after money. Student will suffer to gain admision for many yrs,it will be difficult,but those student that paid money will gained admission.why are we writing screening exam? Dis universities has kill d image of Nigeria

  • This is a RED SIGNAL on future glory of this nation…:to get admission,u’ll bribe and better people full the street searching for admission for years with no help and hope.
    On getting to institution,desperado find their way and get minimum of 2:1 while the lecturers frustrate the serious&diligent ones…

    NNPC made a post that 80% of 2:1 & 1:1 candidates failed aptitude test(how do they manage 2 get the cert they r holding..?)

    Govt placed little concentration on education(less than 10% of budget and they will still embezzle this fund)

    Universities admitting undergraduates into courses NOT of their choice

    A TIME WILL COME THAT A GRADUATE OF THIS COUNTRY WON’T BE RELEVANT BOTH HOME & ABROAD BECAUSE; NIG. COMPANIES VALUE FOREIGN CERTIFICATES THAN NIGERIAN UNIV CERT JUST AS ICAN IS NO MORE RELEVANT

    THE RESPONSIBILITY TO CORRECT THIS IS IN OUR HANDS ALL:
    1. Admission seekers need to change their mentality
    2. Lecturers should learn to be contempt with their salary and stop requesting or accepting bribe, stop messing girls promising to help(despite they r destroying future glory)
    3.Parents should exercise patient hen it comes to matters like children s’ choice of selecting course of study
    4. govt should pay more focus on welfarism of ASU and NASU and all administrations…reduce academic calendar interruption(strike)
    5. better lab equipment,properly organized lecture room….
    GOD BLESS NIGERIA
    ~~~EMMANUEL~~~

  • wao, this is incredible, these foreign universities are not better than ours, there are students who are withdrawn on academic ground that came up tops in UK university. so what are they trying to prove? i think we are paying more attention to certificates from foreign nations and so they can riducle ours. cant we be proud of made in Nigeria for once? this is rubbish. must we work there?

  • God will see us through in this country. a lie can travel for many years but the truth will one day be found. let’s take our education serious. it’s not just about certificate but can u stand by the certificate u have? let’s think twice and be more serious. God bless Nigeria.

  • is a shamful thing that graduates in 9ja cannot defend their cert let alone the so called lecturals. imagine a professor can’t invent any thing in 9ja so were are we heading to?

  • This is bullshit! Damn UK! Damn u guys supporting this! We that sweated d years in school n much struggle would just end like this! Fuck y’all! I’m going to USA…fuck you if you agree with dem…fuck off my internet

  • This is a lesson to the Fedral Govt of Nigeria.
    Instead of looking into the well fare of the future generation, those on top are after their private wel fare….,…fuck up…. Picking…pockets!

    I wish we learn from this and equip our laboratories.

  • Well, I am not suprised as many have said, the Universities are concerned more about than the quality of education being delivered not to talk about sexual imoralities of the lecturers. I have to agree that “we” have to clean up our system and not allow anyone to degrade and demoralise the efforts of the hard working and honest students and lecturers but the truth is that our system lacks adequte structure and quality.If “we” Nigerians cannot stand up and be counted thing like this will be exposed by others. I have to disagree with Ben Itodo’s comments “these foreign universities are not better than ours, there are students who are withdrawn on academic ground that came up tops in UK university. so what are they trying to prove? i think we are paying more attention to certificates from foreign nations and so they can riducle ours. cant we be proud of made in Nigeria for once? this is rubbish. must we work there?” – Please be informed that there are different factors that could contribute to students performance as a result of change of environment. I studied both in Nigeria and the UK and there are differences in both countries. The system in UK is more condusive to learning than it is back home and I have to admit that there are more relevant amenities in UK/US universities than in the Nigerian universities. Please do not get me wrong it is the level of importance that the system puts on our education and future that dictates the quality of such educational system.
    I hope this will help to shape the quality of our Universities as “we” tend to work better under crises in Nigeria (fire fighting approach). There is always light at the end of the tunnel hopefully the education Minister and the law makers are ready to act.

  • sometimes i think deeply wit pity in my heart if Nigeria would ever gt 2 a stage of growth which some of us pray for. it doesn’t seem lyk it cos each day in this country is filled wt many sad & unblivabl sorry, and unfortunately it is in all sectors. Wat can we all do? we cant continue in ds shame even though it doesn’t seem to b directed to us personally, but as a family i think we shld call earnestly wt all sincererity on our creator? God help us.

  • Nigeria problem is just one thing! & if that can be tackle then things will go well in this country. Our problem lies on employing based on certificate! If one is not opportune 2 go 2 school in this part of the world, no job 4 him or her. Why must it be so? Why can we accept everybody based on what u have upstir & can deliver. The more certificate is demand 4 employment, the more our standard of education will fail! Untill that aspect is solve we should be expecting more nigeria university 2 be blacklisted not only in the uk alone but the rest of the world. We don’t go 2 school bcos we want 2 learn in nigeria o! We go 2 school bcos we want 2 have certificate, bcos without certificte no job. How long will will continue like this? We should be given job based on what we can deliver with certificte or no certificate. God help us & bless us.

  • I think that will all are going too far in our responses to this issue, the country (britain) haven’t told us the main reason/reasons why they blacklisted these schools medical Graduates pls let them tell us.

  • This is shamful and abysmal to Nigeria as a giant of corruption, so called giant of Africa. Many students had graduated through the back doors,lecturers are after money and the governments are worst part.
    I am siezing this to urge and appeal to the fedral government to respond to ASSU, if they don’t want more university to be blacklisted.GOD BLESS NIGERIA.

  • Nigeria hv alot of problems facing them…Subsidy removal,Education standard not organised….WHY DID GOVERNMENT LIKE 2 PUNISHING US…INFACT DAT THEIR CHILDREN AE NT SCHOOLING IN DIS NIGERIA.THEY ARE ALL SCHOOLING ABROAD..LEAVING US IN DARKNESS..AM SINCERELY TIRED 4 DIS OUR COUNTRY NIGERIAN.when will dis country(NIG) grow??

  • wow!! Great Job.
    They caught them finally.
    Thanks to UK house for their effort to carry out the investigation.
    Hmm!
    Am really happy for only this even i had written Jamb three times but POST Jamb being a problem because of Nigeria University not in favour of the poor men children.

    You guys should work harder to make post jamb(ume) is eradicated from we country because that’s where most universities cut their lion share.
    Thanks to UK house.
    Keep it up, there are still 97percent out there undetect.
    Goodluck!

  • Am having a suggestion,
    Although it will a difficult task but if a matured thinking is to this my sugestion will make a rain.

    My thinking is this;
    Gov. Should design a public website for for student where they secretly lay complains about any lecturer misbehaviour. That can be achieved by allowing only admitted student to gain access into the complaint box and the list of all Nigeria Universities and their staff will be included.
    I hope the u guys understand what i meant and hope will taken if not all but part of this sugestion into consideration.

    Thanks.

  • The problems of nigeria r 2 much and are always multiplying. Goverment always wants to make matters worse. Today asuu strike,2morrow subsidy removal,next power failure and so on. The only thing we can do is 2 keep on praying 4 a better nigeria

  • There is problem with Nigerian Universities and the lecturers,I think all boils down to non preparations of students to task ahead.60%of nigerian students wants to be graduates with or without thorough coverage of the course outlines.when a lecturer is threatened to compute result by unknown student of the world beyound,what do you expect?
    Remember,there was emphasis,excluding those that finished from the affected universities before 2010.I remember in 2007 when 100 corpers were denied from serving because of the level of grammatical impunity flowing from their mouths. NIGERIA IS FOR US,LET’S SAVE NIGERIA AND SAVE OUR IMAGE.

  • yes it is true that the system of education in nigeria is low, but that is not enough reason for the GMC’s to blacklist any univerty, if that is the case Nigeria will be left with no choice than to pass her judgement to some of the UK university. And also want to criticize the coment of some Nigerians listing some universities as the best, it is wrong. Please you have to grow up. This is a battle we have to fight collectively, no critism. Mr President you are an educatinist, do something, this is a slap on your face.

  • That’s d right thing to do.I love wat d UK did cos dats d only way we’re gunna learn our lesson in dis country.For christ sakes corruption has eaten deep into our system nd gradually we are geettin lost

  • It is simple: the issue is left in the hands of power officials who have all in their capability to dictate for good instead most of them in one way or the other request for never-laboured income/sexual desire which is the gigantic tool used in demolishing the great visibility structure of this country”NIGERIA” to me’DASULAIMON’ I don’t think there would be a change untill then when every LION & CAT of all walks of life in NIG. accommodate fear of GOD & NONCORRUPTIONAL IDEAS/HABITS in OUR daily carry outs.

  • What do you expect, our tertiary institution is characterized with so much abnormalities. Our education standard has been dis-valued, graduates are half baked, tutors are full of immoralities. Only God can save Nigeria not only the educational sector.

  • Blacklisting 9 uni in 9ja is blacklisting d whole uni in 9ja D mistake dat use 2 occur do nt normally start 4rm dat very point bt 4rm d initial 9ja edu shuld b d most focus point in d country wat i mean is dat uni is nt d only educational institution dat we ve if 2 mention we ve d primary & secondary sch if dis two stage culd b tackle by gvt of d day other’s wil b take care of which implies college of education, monotechnic, polytechnic & university. All these r d strength of our country bcos since d pen is mightier stronger senseable than d sward & we shld do away wit irregularity may God bless we all & 9ja our country

  • Matters which are of great interest to d mind are d same matters which could define a man.first of all, the nigerian student.Now d curiosity of nigerian students 4 knowledge is waxing cold and almost to freeze unlike 4 “social activities” which is boiling so hot and almost to a 150 degree celcius. in collaboration with d knocked educational system of nigeria.The end result of such is DOOM. 4 education is light and all it requires 4rm us is to follow it wholeheartedly and it will lead us no one is left out.

  • I don’t suppose there’s a soul who walks on the face of this 21st century earth who underscores the real value of education. Yet it’s not about going to school like we always hear, it’s about being refined and polished by the system we go through. If that system, no matter how bad is eventually destroyed, wherein lies our hope?

  • the fact that the nigerians students are surpasses the oversea ones cannot b shuned but wat contributed to their acedemic braketru is d availability of genue tools & equipmnt(infrastructure)…also,nigerians shud admit competnt studnts rather than putin their over indulged ward(s) for d course they cant cope wt.

  • I still beileve that the emphasis we place on certificate has contributed to the decline of education in nigeria, if people are recruited/ employed based on what they know and can performed, students will sit up. imagine the great discrimination between the university and the polytechnic graduates, we all know what each stand for, in as much as i will agree with Oluwole Ajala above, i still think we could do better if things are done on merit.

  • Having read majority of the comments above I cannot help but laugh out loud because it’s evident the educational sector as a whole has gone to rot! I belong to the old school and I know what things used to be like back during my school days(which offcourse was a military era)…it was tough and we had to learn and earn our grades, it was a thing of pride to pass with distinction and bribing to pass was unheard of! But I digress…why I laugh is that majority of the comments posted above shows complete woeful grammer and command of English(even by those who post as graduates),terrible spellings and sentence constructions! Wao! I think all the schooling structure from nusery to University level should be over hauled,besides this civilian administration has been the waterloo of the education sector judging from the dates listed above as in admissible(2010 to present). No doubt this democratic setting has raised corruption to an all time high! And it is said that the monies looted since the commencement of democracy is more than that from all the military regimes combined!

    • You are very correct. I noticed that too, but i must say I learnt my English in primary school. The system needs total overhauling. I had an experience of solving maths in my own way and the lecturer marked me down because i did not do it his own way, when i studied extensively. I aspire to be a lecturer someday only for the aim of giving back to the the society, because I know what i suffered to come out of University. I never believed in sexual harassment but it happened to me but i refused to compromise and God saved me. My mum said leave the certificate and have your dignity. We have to Labs or rather good Labs. A tree cannot make a forest but I hope to put in my little effort in making Nigeria better. That is my passion.
