THE announcement the other day by the National Universities Commission (NUC) that it had banned 57 illegal degree-awarding institutions operating in Nigeria was nothing more than another of its annual ritual in the face of its lax regulatory instincts.

A RECENT inquiry into NNPC made the following findings: The corporation as structured is extensive, and its control far beyond the normal span of management control that would be expected from the existing management staff.
