NUC Moves To Ban Illegal Courses Offered By Specialised Universities

The National Universities Commission, NUC, has
commenced the process of dis-accrediting some
courses being handled by specialized
universities.
Specialized universities are those set up to
pursue specific courses and programmes to
generate manpower in particular sectors of the
economy. They include universities of technology
and those of agriculture.

This followed a directive by the Federal Ministry
of Education that specialized universities should
not handle courses outside their mandate two
months ago.
The NUC Director of Information and Public
Relations, Ibrahim Yakasai, who confirmed this
development, disclosed that the commission held
a meeting last week Tuesday in Abuja with the
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB,
and the vice chancellors of specialized to
harmonise the courses being offered by the
institutions.
“On Tuesday, we met with JAMB and Vice
Chancellors of Specialized Universities,” Mr.
Yakasai said.
“The schools brought all their programs and we
are looking at them.
“We are looking at the courses that are actually
related to the mandates given to them, looking at
the courses that are relevant for the Agriculture
universities and those that are also relevant to
technology universities; thereby delist those that
are not relevant and ask them to stop doing
them.
“We will then revert back to the schools on the
ones being approved for them and then we
forward it to JAMB.” He stated
He further mentioned that students that have
already been admitted into such courses in those
unsiversoityes wull be allied to graduate whil the
lectures teachning those coyrses will be
depileyted to telated ones
