Kazaure has warned members of the public to beware of individuals and institutions which are in the habit of admitting students to study courses in unapproved and illegal Polytechnics, Monotechnics and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) with a promise to award the National Diploma (ND) or Higher National Diploma (HND) certificates.

Illegal Polytechnics

The Executive Secretary warned that those institutions have not been licensed by the Federal Government and are therefore operating illegally in violation of the Education (National Minimum Standards and Establishment of Institutions) Act CAP E3, LFN, 2004.

For public notice, we shall list out the  unapproved or illegal polytechnics, Monotechnics and IEIs in Nigeria. It has been understood that anyone who obtains certificates from any of those institutions would not be recognized for the purpose of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC), employment and for further studies.
