The Federal Government, through the Federal Ministry of Education, has started the formation of an inter-ministerial committee to look into the activities of private and foreign universities operating in Nigeria. The committee has members such as the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, the Minister of Youths, Jamila Bio-Ibrahim, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, among others.

One of the committee’s key terms of reference is to check private universities established in the last 15 years. The goal of this is to assess if these institutions have the required facilities, appropriate management structures, adequate funding for programs, and the necessary staff (full-time, contract, adjunct, visiting, among other types). The National Universities Commission (NUC) periodically conducts accreditation exercises, but this additional survey aims to ensure compliance with specific criteria.
