THE National University Commission, NUC, Wednesday blamed the rot in the education sector on the takeover of public and missionary schools shortly after the Nigeria-Biafran civil war in the seventies. Executive Secretary of the NUC, Professor Julius Okojie who made this known also said that the abolition of boarding schools as well as 30 years of military rule contributed to high level of indiscipline and decay in the system.

This was even as the NUC has also approved the Jigawa State University, making it the 39th state university and 129 recognized universities in the country.
