NUC Team Lauds AAUA’s Facilities, Standard… “With what we have seen since we arrived yesterday, I have no doubt that the University is doing well. All we have seen are of international standard. It is commendable that a state-owned University like yours is doing so well.”
The leader of the verification teams of the National Universities Commission, Prof. Daniel Njokwu, has commended the giant strides of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko (AAUA), despite its young status.
Prof. Njokwu gave the commendation on Monday last week when he led the two teams of the NUC to AAUA for verification exercise of the University’s newly-established Faculty of Agriculture and the Department of Performing Arts. Speaking in the Senate Chamber of the University’s Senate Building, Prof. Njokwu said, “With what we have seen since we arrived yesterday, I have no doubt that the University is doing well. All we have seen are of international standard. It is commendable that a state-owned University like yours is doing so well.”
He also thanked the University for its hospitality. The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) of the University, Prof. (Mrs.) Oluyemisi Adebowale, who received the verification teams on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Igbekele Ajibefun, thanked the NUC officials for undertaking the exercise which she noted was to ensure quality in the higher education sector of the country.
She said, “Adekunle Ajasin University is the nation’s fastest growing university and the most subscribed university in South-West Nigeria as published by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in 2015. AAUA, without being immodest, is a University that is aiming higher and committed to growth in every facet.”
The DVC also expressed confidence in the volume and quality of facilities that the University has acquired for training in the Faculty of Agriculture and the Department of Performing Arts under the Faculty of Arts.
Prof. Adebowale noted that the University, in the last December’s verification exercise, had received 100 per cent accreditation of its courses. She said, “26 out of the 27 courses presented for accreditation in December last year got full accreditation, only one got interim accreditation.” Prof. Adebowale added, “The University has massive hectares of land, both at Supare community and Idoani town. AAUA is putting in place several facilities that can enhance the status of the various Faculties. I am sure you won’t be disappointed with the resources we have on ground.”
