A total of six teams constituted by the National Universities Commission (NUC) have concluded resource verification of new programmes presented by the University.

Addressing the teams during welcome and exit meetings held at the Governing Council Chamber, Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of Administration, Professor Regina Ogali, who stood in for the Vice-Chancellor, told the teams that resource verification was a regular exercise aimed at improving academic programmes in the University.

“We want to thank you for coming to our University and we wish to assure you that we welcome such visitations because they help correct our lapses. We will fully cooperate with the teams and we promise that all recommendations will be implemented to enable new programmes take-off on sound footings. I can assure you that we are open to new ideas,” she said. Professor Ogali commended the resource verification teams for their frankness and recommendations aimed at positioning the University for better delivery to students and other stakeholders.

In his introductory speech, Coordinator of the teams who is a Director in the National Universities Commission, Hassan Yakasai, noted that each of the six teams consisted of distinguished professors and representatives from the NUC. He further disclosed that the programmes presented by the University comprised of Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Mechatronics and Environmental Engineering, Library and Information Science, Early Childhood and Primary Education, Social Works and Public Administration.

Two of the team leaders, Professors Innocent Ekoja and Florence Obi who spoke on behalf of the Library and Information Science and Early Childhood and Primary Education after the verification exercise, commended the University for a well-resourced e-library and functional internet facilities. “You have sufficient number of books for the take-off of the new programmes with current and relevant journal titles. We hope that the University Management will address some of the observed lapses that we pointed out during the resource verification exercise. We have done our best, the rest is now left for the NUC to decide,” Professor Ekoja remarked.
