The Embassy of Republic of Niger in Nigeria on Friday, condemned the National Universities Commission (NUC) for declaring that degrees obtained from the Maryam Abacha American University of Niger (MAAUN) are not recognised in Nigeria.
The Embassy of Republic of Niger in Nigeria has come out to state categorically that the Maryam Abacha American University of Niger (MAAUN) is recognised by law and “fulfils all the required terms and regulations” enforced in that country.
This was contained in a letter dated Monday, July 27, 2015 with reference number: NV.156/2015/ANN/AB/S1 from the Embassy and addressed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Abuja over media reports that MAAUN degrees were not recognised in Nigeria.
The Embassy therefore enjoined the ministry to forward the letter to competent authorities in Nigeria particularly the National Universities Commission (NUC) which according it “discredited” the institution earlier.
It condemned the stance by NUC, saying that “this sort of practice is against the excellent relationships of cooperation which exists between the two countries in the field of education.”
It would be recalls that the NUC had previously declared that degrees from the institution are not recognised in Nigeria as it cannot guarantee their quality.
