The National Universities Commission, NUC, has been commended for its regular efforts at accrediting academic programmes in Nigerian Universities and for helping to ensure standardisation of academic training and knowledge impartation.
This commendation was given last week by the Vice Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Prof. Igbekele Ajibefun, while playing host to the NUC accreditation teams who visited the University for a review and accreditation of various academic programmes.
Prof. Ajibefun, who was represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Prof. Olugbenga Ige, said accreditation and review of academic programmes are some of the best innovations of the National Universities Commission for which it should continually be applauded. He stated further that accreditation of programmes has helped in keeping academic programmes in Nigerian varsities in good standing and has also helped to standardize them.
He added that, Our University is young, yet it is a leading University in Ondo State that is aspiring to be the best in the country. As a University, we are very eager to develop. Over the years, we have been doing very well with the quality and exploits of our graduates and undergraduates.
In their reactions, the team leaders for the Mathematics, and Physics and Electronics Departments, Professors G. O. Avwiri and O. O. Micah, respectively appreciated the University for the warm reception. They clarified that the teams are not in Ajasin Varsity on a fault-finding mission but for the peer review of programmes so that they can remain in the realm of standards as spelt out by the NUC.
