Responding, Professor Afolabi
stated that the visit was meant to,
among other things, appreciate
the Commission for the development of an undergraduate BMAS
for Environmental programme.
He noted that such an effort
would go a long way in complementing the commitment of the
Council in ensuring the development of environmental health

than curative health system and

vironmental health officers and
other health practitioners in the
country. He observed that good
education was a sine qua non
to revitalising any organisation.
Professor Afolabi recalled that
the slogan “prevention is better
than cure” was better practiced
in the 1920s during the Colonial
era, as more Nigerians adhered
to environmental rules by ensuring a clean and decent environment, noting that such adherence
contributed to the reduction in
the rate of environment-related
diseases in the country. He however regretted that shortly after
independence,
Environmental Health Officers were used by
politicians to intimidate and harass political opponents, a reason,
which he said, contributed to
the sudden decline in the activities of EHORECON in Nigeria.
The leader of the delegation
further recalled that, in about
1972, Environmental Health
programme was introduced in
Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile
Ife, but was later replaced with
medicine, with more emphasis on
curative rather than preventive
measures in the country. He maintained that in spite of this trend,
the programme on preventive
measures were preferable as they
were less expensive and created
health consciousness, adding that
EHORECON had made frantic
efforts over the years to revive its
activities, part of which, he said,
was the recommendation for the
Chairman of the Council to be a
Cabinet-Round Minister to ensure
a smooth implementation of its
laws. He, however, noted that the
recommendation was mistaken
for a Cabinet Minister. He said that
the Council was working towards
developing a scheme of service
that would guarantee improved
remuneration for its members.
Professor Afolabi disclosed that
Environmental health practice
in Nigeria got professional recognition through the enactment
of the Environmental Health
Officers (Registration, etc) Act
of 2004, adding that the Council had contributed significantly
towards containing the spread
of Ebola disease in the country, with the employment of 490
Environmental Health Officers,
by the Federal Government, to
man border areas to prevent further spread of the Ebola disease.
The Chairman of the Council
sought for collaboration with the
Commission in its university-wide
activities and also appealed to the
NUC to consider more universities in running the environmental health programme in order to
create more opportunities for prospective undergraduates. At the
meeting were Management members of the Commission and Council members of the EHORECON.
ODL Enhances Democracy – Prof. Alkali
T
he Special Adviser to the
President on Political Affairs,
Professor Rufa’i Ahmed Alkali, on
Friday, 16 January, 2015, reiterated the importance of Open and
Distance Learning (ODL) to Nigeria’s democratic transformation,
suggesting that the ODL mode
had made education and training accessible for more people at
less cost, and without compromising quality. This was the crux
of his Convocation Lecture at the
National Open University of Ni3
geria (NOUN), titled “Open and
Distance Learning and Democratic Transformation in Nigeria”.
Represented by a former Minister of Sports, Professor Taoheed
Adedoja, the Special Adviser, who
is also a Professor of Political Science, argued in his Lecture that, as
a young democracy, Nigeria encountered several challenges and
that the likelihood of surmounting them, not only rested on the
nation’s ability to institute creative
policies, but also on the willingness to faithfully implement these
innovative policies. He observed
that Nigeria’s democratic environment had opened up limitless avenues for public education in all
sectors of governance and that,
since the establishment of NOUN,
Government had opened a unique
platform for the advancement
of knowledge through a process
that gave every Nigerian, especially those who sought academic
advancement and self-improvement, an opportunity to succeed.

dent was sworn-in in May, 2010,
the years 2007, 2008 and 2009,
were years of global economic recession. Through out the world,
oil prices fell, manufacturing declined, unemployment soared,
banks were in distress and many
large companies merged while
others completely went bankrupt.
According to him, it was at this
point, that the present Administration took over the ship of state
and effectively came up with the
vision of transforming Nigeria,
economically, socially and politically – hence, the initiation of the
national Transformation Agenda.
Professor Alkali disclosed that
immediately President Goodluck
Ebele Jonathan won the April,
2011 presidential election, he
launched a series of initiatives,
most notably, the Transformation Agenda, which was based on
a summary of how the Federal
Government planned to deliver
projects, programmes and key priority policies from 2011 to 2015.
He recalled that before the Presi- While noting that education was a

major part of the Federal Government’s Transformation Agenda,
the Convocation Lecturer stated
that Nigeria’s geographic size was
such that the conventional system
alone could not meet its educational needs. Hence, he suggested
that, education of this population
was a critical factor in achieving
democratic transformation and
that beyond the conventional universities, a well-managed ODL
system could bridge the education gap and impart the necessary
skills to the citizenry, irrespective of their location, to facilitate
the development of the nation.
According to the Professor, ODL
provided equity in educational
pursuit and served as an avenue for
professional development, making available improved resources
for students to acquire new skills
and ensure that they were better equipped to contribute to society. He observed that, recently,
there had been an international
policy discourse around lifelong
learning, one which ODL ensured, adding that the policy recognised the mode as a major step
in guaranteeing employability.
Recounting the history of ODL
in Nigeria, the Special Adviser
noted that the Nigerian National
Policy on Education (NPE) stated
that, at any stage of the educational process, after junior secondary education, “an individual
shall be able to choose between
continuing full-time studies,
combining work with study or
embarking on full-time employment without excluding the prospect of resuming studies later”.
Professor Alkali further explained
that ODL was aimed at providing
access to quality education and equity in educational opportunities
for those who otherwise would
have been denied; meeting special
needs of employers by mounting
special certificate courses for their
employees at their work place; encouraging internationalisation, especially of tertiary education curricula and ameliorating the effect
of internal and external brain drain
in tertiary institutions, by utilising
experts as teachers, regardless of
their locations or places of work.
In his remarks, the Chairman of
the Convocation Lecture and Executive Secretary, Nigerian Educational Research Develoment
Council (NERDC), Professor
Godswill Obioma, observed that
the Administration of President
Jonathan had, since assumption
of office, initiated several steps
to promote access and quality
in the education section. He remarked that NOUN had been in
the forefront of achieving these
objectives, as it had admitted
more students than any other university in the country, while ensuring that the quality of its programmes was not compromised.

GUIDELINES ON PART-TIME AND SANDWICH
PROGRAMMES IN NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES
Below are guidelines for conducting Part-time and Sandwich
programmes in Nigerian universities. All universities currently
operating Part-time programmes are expected to comply with the
guidelines on programme by programme basis.
Consequently, universities still interested in running Part-time
programmes are advised to forward fresh applications to the
NUC on programme by programme basis.
This is, however, subject to the readiness of the university to comply
with the following extant guidelines on part-time programmes:
1. The admission and graduation requirements, Staffing, Library
and physical facilities requirements must be in line with the
Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) for the
various full-time academic programmes;
2. For a programme to be eligible to run on part-time basis,
the approved full-time equivalent must be available in the
university, must have earned full accreditation and must be
run within approved campuses;
3. The enrolment into part-time programmes must not exceed
20% of total students’ population in the programme;
4. The minimum duration of the part-time programmes must
be 150% of the approved duration of the Full-Time equivalent;
5. Approval shall not be granted for part-time programmes
in Environmental Sciences, Engineering/Technology, Law,
Medicine/Medical Sciences, Pharmacy/Pharmaceutical
Sciences, Dentistry; and Veterinary Science;
6. All admissions into part-time programmes must be through
the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Parttime programmes must be run within approved campuses of
universities where the human and material resources for the
teaching of the programmes are domiciled, i.e. on the main
campus of the university;
7.Part-time programmes shall be subjected to the NUC
accreditation assessment upon maturity of the programme;
8. For any programme to be eligible for part-time mode, it must
have produced two (2) sets of graduates and satisfied the
Resource Verification Requirements.
9. Commencement of a part-time programme MUST be subject
to NUC’s approval. Approval of commencement of all parttime programmes must be obtained.
The National Universities Commission shall not hesitate to apply
appropriate sanctions on any university which violates any of the
stipulated Guidelines on Part-Time and Sandwich Programmes.

NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES COMMISSION
List of Universities with Approved Postgraduate Programmes
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has observed
with great concern that some Nigerian universities are
running unapproved postgraduate programmes, leading to
the award of Masters and PhD degrees. The Commission
has also observed that some Parastatals and Institutes are
awarding these same Postgraduate degrees, either on their
own or through unapproved affiliations with Nigerian and
foreign Universities. Such practices are not only unethical,
but also antithetical to time-tested quality assurance best
practices. The qualifications/awards resulting therefrom
are not recognized. The Commission hereby notifies the
