Many years ago, Pebble Hills was operating out of a cellar in the Antico Principato di Seborga, and the President of the PHU Nigerian Chapter was a bloke who called himself His Eminence Lord Monarch O. Ojierenem. He was Nigerias first Grand PhD, a title bestowed upon him by the World Information Distributed University in Moscow. Googling him won't yield many hits nowadays, but back then, he was around, so to speak. Started his career at Obe & Nkem, an outfit interesting for a number of reasons, 419 to be exact. These days, Pebble Hills is also accredited by IAO, the International Accreditation Organization (an Axact thingy), and is an affiliate of CUFCE, California University Foreign Credential Evaluation. There was, and perhaps still is, some sort of mutual recognition and validation agreement between PHU and Anointed (or Anoited, the university isn't sure about which it is) University in Johannesburg, South Africa.
