The founder, Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), has advised the  Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the National Universities Commission (NUC) to prosecute and confiscate property belonging to operators of illegal universities in the country.

He gave the advice Sunday at the 9th convocation ceremony of ABUAD where a total of 1,415 got various degrees.

Babalola said that would rescue the country’s tertiary education from imminent collapse.

At the occasion, ABUAD bestowed honorary doctorate degrees on the Governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Zulum, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo Adejugbe and the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Sulu Gambari.

Speaking on behalf of the honourees, Governor Zulum said lack of education was chiefly responsible for the cases of insecurity being witnessed in Nigeria.
