The National Universities’ Commission (NUC) on Monday lifted the suspension order placed on three universities, out of the six it initially suspended.
The Jospeph Ayo Babalola University (JABU), Ikeji-Arakeji, in Osun State; Achiever’s University, Owo, Osun State; and Tansian University at Umunya, Anambra State; can now function, the NUC said.
This lifting of the suspension order is contained in the NUC Monday Bulletin released in Abuja.
The commission said the suspension was lifted because of the corrective measures taken by the universities to rectify the infractions that led to the suspension of their operational licences.
In the statement, the commission said it would soon send a team to conduct fresh forensic audit on the six private universities, whose licences were earlier suspended.
Apart from the three whose suspensions were lifted, the other universities to be visited by the NUC are Madonna University, Okija; Caritas University, Amorji-Nike, Enugu; and Lead City University, Ibadan,
The statement said that the audit would cover all aspects of the universities’ operations.
The commission said it will also continue to monitor the universities’ implementation of agreed actions, and would ensure continuous compliance with its extant guidelines and regulations.
