AFUED 61 courses for accreditation

By Sade Adewale, Ondo

As part of the procedures to ensure full accreditation of the planned 61 programmes to be run by Adeyemi Federal University of Education (AFUED) Ondo, the National University Commission has conducted a second round of resource verification exercise at the school.

The NLC Resource Verification Team (NUCRVT) stated that the exercise was not meant to find fault in the school but to provide good recommendations that would be beneficial to the university when fully operational.

The schools visited by the NUCRVT members included the School of Science, Languages, Arts and Social Sciences, Vocational and Technical Education, Early Childhood and Primary Education, Adult and Non-Formal Education, and Education.

Speaking at the end of the assessment, Prof. Bello Umar commended the management of the institution for the level of preparations made before the commencement of the verification exercise.

He noted that the quality of teaching, non-teaching staff, and facilities made available before the exercise indicated the institution’s readiness to commence full academic activities.

The Agricultural Science Professor, however, emphasized the need for the university’s management to embark on the rehabilitation of some structures that require a facelift in the institution.

In addition, he recommended the provision of additional equipment to be provided in the agricultural science laboratory, stating that the move would facilitate teaching and learning in the department.

Other recommendations of the NLCRVT included the recruitment of additional qualified academic staff, the development of the e-library, and the provision of recent academic journals to complement existing ones available at the library.

While commending the effort of the school management, she emphasized the need for offices to be properly arranged and the provision of more databases at the University library.

Mmeka said the commission would not relent in ensuring that the institution is well-positioned to enable it to compete favourably with other institutions worldwide.

Responding, the Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) of AFUED, Dr. Samuel Akintunde, assured that all recommendations would be implemented.
