The National Universities Commission, NUC, on Thursday reiterated that no tertiary institution in Nigeria is allowed to charge tuition fees in dollars.

The acting Executive Secretary of NUC, Chris Maiyaki, emphasised this at a media parley with education reporters in Abuja.

He was reacting to a statement by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, inviting proprietors of private universities and other institutions of higher learning in Nigeria who allegedly are charging fees in dollars.

“On the dollarisation of tuition fees in this said university, we have investigated it and the university is not charging fees in dollars. They only charge dollars to foreign students. So, I want the media to join hands with us to tell the public that no Nigerian university is allowed to charge fees in dollars,” he said.

The executive secretary also said that the commission would continue to approve more universities as long as they meet standards and have the capacity for sustainability.

He disclosed that the commission would issue licences to two universities by next week to add to the existing 270 in the country.

According to him, it would give room for access to tertiary education and stem the tide of Nigerians going outside the country to study.

“Due to the huge gap in demand and supply of university education, the National Universities Commission will continue to give approval for the establishment of more universities,” he said.

He added that the commission would continue to process applications for Distance Learning Centres across the country to give room for education access.
