The affected universities are: Madonna University, Okija; Caritas University, Enugu; Achievers Uinversity, Osun; Lead City University, Ibadan; Obong University, Obong and Tansian University, Umunya.
NUC spokesman, Mallam Ibrahim Yakassai confirmed the suspension of the varsities to a Nigerian daily( Not BusinessDay) on Wednesday night.
