NUC Accreditation Has Kept Academic Programmes Competitive – AAUA VC
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.
In his words, “Accreditation and review of academic programmes are some of the best innovations that NUC has brought to the Nigerian University system. It has allowed proper review of programmes, so that the programmes can continue to be in good standing. Apart from the fact that it brings about a lot of infrastructural development, it has also led to human capital development. And for the NUC to organize this to make arrangement for this on a yearly basis, is a commendable step.”
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.
“Our graduates are excelling in various institutions where they find themselves and those on campus are doing very well too. Just this year, one of our graduates bagged First Class at the Nigerian Law School final Bar examinations, adding to the list of First Class products that AAUA has serially produced at the Nigerian Law School in the last four years. Also, if you move round the university, you would see the level of our infrastructures and development.”
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.
Professor Ige assured the accrediting teams that the University would be willing to heed advice and readily act on recommendations accordingly.

Prof. Ajibefun, who was represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Prof. Olugbenga Ige, said the societies have served as good mediators in the sustainability of their members’ financial empowerment. He added that the Institution would continue to support such societies in their quest to meet their financial obligations to members.
The keynote Speaker and Director, Ondo State Cooperative Service, Mr. Braiye Williams, commended the Academic Staff Cooperative Multipurpose society for meeting up with global standards in the organization of its activities.
He reiterated that cooperative societies are operated on basic ethics and values, and that such values are general norms that cooperators, committee members and staff should imbibe and use to guide their operations.
