Lagos — The British Council in Nigeria and National Association of UK Certified Education Agents (NAUKCEA) have struck an accord on how to combat the menace of fake admissions into UK varsities often perpetrated by unlicensed agents.
At a news briefing in Lagos, Director of Education, British Council, David Higgs told journalists that the relationship between the British Council and NAUKEA is geared towards improving trans-national relationship between Britain and Nigeria, especially in the area of education while at the same time putting a stop to what he described as the dubious recruitment exercise by certain education agents.
"We realised that we are entering a turbulent period in the cause of providing affordable higher education resources for Nigerian students who are willing to study abroad. We are into competitions with schools from United States, Canada, Ukraine, South Africa and even Ghana. But for us in Britain, we really want to see more transnational relationships between Nigeria and UK so as to further cement diplomatic relationships that exist between the two countries," Higgs said.
