ONLY 25 UNIVERSITIES HAVE THEIR COURSES FULLY ACCREDITED, SAYS NUC.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) recently released the list of the Universities in Nigeria with their Courses fully accredited. According to the report, contained in its 2021 Nigerian University system ranking of the 170 Universities in Nigeria, only 25 of the Federal, States and Private Universities met the full accreditation requirements of NUC.

Conspicuously, Glorious Vision University, Ogwa, was one of the few Universities that made the “tight list” of 25. Others include Adeleke University, Osun State, Al-Qalam University Katsina State, Caleb University Lagos State, Chrisland University Lagos State, Crescent University Ogun State, Federal University Lokoja, Federal University Wukari, Federal University Keshere, Hallmark University Ogun State, Hezekiah University Imo State, Ibrahim Babangida University Niger State, Igbinedion University Edo State, Kano University of Science and Technology, Kano. Others are Kebbi State University of Science and Technology, Kogi State University, Maitama Sule University Kano, Mcpharson University Ogun State, Mountain Top University Ogun State, Niger Delta University, Nigeria Defence Academy, PAMO University of Medical Science River State, River State University, Summit University Kwara State, and Umaru Musa Yar’Adua University Kasina State.

It should be noted that following the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) accreditation visit to GVU in November, 2014 and 2019, all the academic programmes of the University have been fully accredited. The Vice-Chancellor, Professor A. Babatunde Idowu, said he was not really surprised at this feat, stating that the University since the first NUC visitation, had improved on all the necessary things needed in the ultra- modern laboratories, classrooms and lecture halls which are fully equipped with modern and world-class apparatus. He said since the COVID-19 pandemic when the classrooms and laboratories were used for online teaching, the young University has greatly improved.  Professor Idowu reiterated that with this report released by the NUC, he was not in doubt that the just concluded 2021 NUC accreditation exercise in December, would be work-over.

The VC emphasized that GVU as a faith-based institution was not involved in any window-dressing approach when it comes to academic course content. He reiterated that from the NUC first assessment in 2014 when all the GVU  programmes scored between 81.2% and 93.8%, he was sure that the exist report of the just concluded accreditation would be reflected in the final report.

He said the report had further confirmed the world-class status of Glorious Vision University. Quoting from the Bible verse of Proverbs 4: 1 which says ’’But the path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day,’’ Professor Idowu added that GVU was set on the path it must follow. He stressed that in pursuing the vision of the founding fathers, the institution has gradually become a haven for quality education, moral uprightness and research destination for students and researchers.   Professor Idowu used the opportunity to state that the University was eagerly waiting for the Council of Legal Education visitation to the University.
