The Current Situation at Houdegbe North American University, Cotonou

This Bilingual University situated in Pk10, Cotonou was established  by Prof. Octave Cossi Houdegbe. Since it’s inception, the school had progressed and especially within 2009-2015 the population of Nigerian students was collosal but instead of making positive progress, the state of affairs at the school worsened.

From 2015, Nigerian Law graduates were banned from being admitted into the Nigerian Law School till date. Things even worsened after a new President was elected in the country of Benin. Patrice Talon became president and charged the president of the school of corruption allegeding he had been running the school without paying his taxes. In 2016, everything started to deteriorate as the school had to start paying all outstanding taxes and could no longer afford to pay it’s lecturers. Many students transferred to other universities. In a bid to retain it students, the school reduced it’s tuition fees.
Currently, as at August 2018 there are less than 500 students in the entire University who are mostly on the verge of transferring because there is little or no educational activity going on campus. There is also no electricity and water on campus because the new President of the country accuses the President of the University of operating the school for years without paying any bills. Allegedly, the former president of Benin Republic is a close Ally to the University president and had allowed that “corruption”.
There is no doubt, the new president of Benin Republic is working and the currency which used to go for 3thousand Francs to a thousand Naira is now almost the same as the Naira.
The honest truth is that the school is on the verge of shutting down.
My advice to prospective students simply is, DO NOT GO THERE!
Don’t be decieved, don’t let the pressure of Nigerian University admission process lead you astray cos at this point, you may not be eligible for NYSC soon.Do not waste thousands of money on a degree that could be worthless.
A word is enough for the wise
