Do you know that just like we have the best universities in Nigeria, we also have the worst universities in Nigeria?
Why are some universities the worst? The National University Commission (NUC) listed some worst universities in Nigeria early this year.
Meanwhile, because some universities in Nigeria are worst by the National University Commission (NUC) does not necessarily mean they have inexperienced staff.
Or they have the worst teaching methods and whatever you can think of.
They are the worst universities mainly because they do not meet the standard qualities of the National University Commission (NUC).
These universities’ infrastructure, facilities, equipment, and social amenities might not be up to the standard required.
However, as a student seeking admission into a higher institution, you need to be well-informed in your decision-making process.
Some students choose the wrong school because they are desperate to be in a higher institution. That is why it is important to research the school you want to attend before applying for admission.
Instead of attending a university that the NUC has listed to be among the worst universities, you can easily choose from the best universities.
So, which universities are the worst in Nigeria? Let’s find out!

We have so many universities in Nigeria, but not all of them are fit for Nigerian students. So, it is important to know some of the worst universities you shouldn’t attend.
However, the fact that the National University Commission listed some universities as the worst in the country doesn’t necessarily mean they are terrible.
A common factor is that all these universities are still new and not fully developed. All the above universities had a short time frame of existence, but they will develop and meet up to the standard over time.
