[b]Trash.... Trash... and...
A lot of People would say Bill Gates was not a university Graduate when he made it. Mark zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard to be someone in life. Seun osewa, Steve jobs, etc and the list goes on. But they will never tell you the ratio of people who made it through education to the ratio of people who became successful without education.They condemn it to make it seem Schooling is a total waste of time.
The truth of the matter is Getting a degree nowadays is different from that of the 90's when a certificate can guarantee a better future for its holder, That was the Fact then. In this era, getting a degree only gives you a few inches edge over non degree holder, then making it totally depends on the individual.
As an undergraduate, or a potential admission seeker, You need to stop carrying this 90's idea in your head. That 90's fact is now a fairy tale(Credits to Robert kiyozaki). Your success starts with your mindset not your degree.
If working with your degree certificate is your main aim, Always have a backup plan should in case plan A fails, that's just the way it is... That is to prove to the o.p that getting a degree in any country (Nigeria included) is never a waste of time

And back to the o.p notion of Nigerian universities precisely.
One thing I'd advise you do is...
Carry your B.sc certificate earned in a Nigerian University to any university in the whole world if you won't be admitted for an M.sc or Phd program....

A better version of your rant should have been
** Do not rely on your certificate alone, acquire vocational skills to buffer up your self worth**
