Speaking at the Education World

January, 2015, Mallam Shekarau stated that education was
critical to the long-term future
of Nigeria, noting that the current Administration had made
funds available to tertiary institutions across all levels to cater
for the needed infrastructure
and facilities that would enhance

He, however, said that there

it had led to increased enrolment
in the Basic and Tertiary Institutions, thereby ensuring that more
children were provided with an
opportunity to prepare for the
future. He stated that the efforts
of the Federal Government in the
development of new infrastructure and the rehabilitation of existing ones, had transformed the
nation’s educational institutions
for quality, stressing that attention
had also been given to the provision of teaching and learning materials to ensure quality outcome.
The Minister attributed the establishment of 127 ‘Tsangaya’,
known as Al-Majiri Schools,
in the North to the present administration’s determination to
provide citizens access to basic
education across the country.

T
he Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Julius A.
Okojie, OON, has admonished
the new Provost of the Nigerian
Defence Academy (NDA), Professor A. S. Nwankwo, to ensure
that the quality of teaching and
research in the Academy conformed with the set standards in
the NUC’s Benchmark Minimum
Academic Standards (BMAS).
The Executive Secretary stated this on Thursday, 12 February, 2015, when both the outgoing and incoming Provosts
of the Academy paid him a familiarisation visit in his office.
The NUC Scribe noted that the activities of the NDA were complex,
considering its military peculiarities, noting that the Academy
was saddled with the responsibility of training students with both
military and academic skills, unlike conventional universities.
The Executive Secretary advised
the new Provost to always consult
with the Nigerian Military before taking decisions on the programmes to run in the Academy
and also, the NUC, saying that
these programmes, which might
be uniquely designed to impart
military and academic knowledge,
should be communicated to the
Commission, so that the NUC

In his remarks, the Director, Academic Standard, Dr. Gidado
Kumo, stated that in the last five
years, the NUC had enjoyed a cordial relationship with the Institution. He urged the new Provost
to tap from the wealth of experience of the former Provost, Professor Okeniyi, so that he could
fine-tune the programmes of
the NDA, especially the mode of
entry into the Institution’s Postgraduate programmes which he
advised, should be looked into
critically and redirected to fit into
NUC’s standards such that whatever degree a cadet officer acquired while in the NDA would
be both beneficial to both the
military and the society at large,
either in service or out of service.
Responding, the incoming Academic Provost of the NDA, Professor A.S Nwankwo, reaffirmed that
the job of NDA was enormous,
since it entailed grooming students for both academic and military background. He promised to
bridge the gap between these two.
He said that the NDA was restructuring its Post-graduate school,
which had made it not to admit
students this session and to make

refunds to students who fell under the programmes that were no
longer being offered in the institution. He added that there was a
new faculty which the institution
was putting in place and would
let the Commission know in due
course, promising his commit-
ment to the development of the
Institution. He mentioned that the
visit was aimed at seeking more of
NUC’s support so that the NDA
could be one of the best degree
awarding Institutions in Nigeria.
In his remarks, Professor Okeniyi
pledged his continued support
to the new Provost, stating that
at the moment, the only programme awaiting accreditation
in the Institution was Psychology,
which, he said, would soon be visited by the NUC for accreditation.

The NUC Scribe told the visitors
that the University had contravened some of the Commission’s
operational guidelines and procedures, especially in its recruitment
processes, stressing that the Institution employed some unqualified personnel, including a fake
professor. The offence, he said,
made NUC to step in to correct
the anomalies. He added that poor

for the leadership role and administrative guidance provided

received with the aim of putting

Dr. Saliu added that the University also contravened the Commission’s directive by continuing
to admit students into its Computer Science Department which
had been denied Accreditation in

The NUC Scribe, who made the
call when a delegation from the
NSE paid him a courtesy call in
his office, assured the Society that
the Commission had ensured that
Nigerian universities had a level
playing ground and the right environment to succeed like their counterparts in developed countries.
Professor Okojie noted, particularly, that the quality of engineers
produced in some Nigerian universities was not good enough,
adding that the quality of engineering graduates had a direct
impact on the quality of infrastructure in the country. He added
that the Federal Government had
provided and embarked on massive infrastructure development
throughout the nation, saying that
Nigerian graduates had more opportunities, than ever before, to
be part of these developments.
The Executive Secretary informed
the delegation that the Commission had recently introduced new
programmes in the Nigerian University System (NUS) to better
prepare the nation for the challenges of globalisation and for the
citizenry to be competitive. He admonished the NSE to always ensure that sanctions were applied on
defaulters in the sector to checkmate unprofessional practices.

NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES COMMISSION

practices. The qualifications/awards resulting therefrom
