List Of Worst Universities In Nigeria

Although there are several institutions in Nigeria, some of these institutions’ standards of teaching, as well as the provision of infrastructure and provision of amenities, have made their title of ‘an educational institution’ to be questioned. While some of these universities are public, some of them also belong to private owners.

In this list, we will be discussing the worst universities in Nigeria according to ratings in terms of amenities amongst others, and the ratings from NUC(National University Commission). NUC has rated them as the worst universities that Nigeria has so you might want to be extra careful and weigh your decisions when applying for a course in any of the institutions.

Note, National University Commission is the board in Nigeria responsible for institutions as well as ensuring everything is worth it just like NAFDAC for food and drugs.
