OOU, CU get full accreditation

0

Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye and Covenant University, Ota are celebrating the full accreditation of all their programmes in the recently concluded November accreditation exercise of the National Universities Commission (NUC).

In a statement signed by OOU’s Head of Public Relations, Mr Niyi Oduwole, the 23 programmes presented to NUC by the university got scores ranging from 70 to 95 per cent in the exercise.

This feat, Mr Oduwole claims, makes OOU the university with the highest number of accredited programmes (52) in Nigeria.

However, he said six new recently introduced programmes of the university are yet to go through accreditation.

Some of the programmes given accreditation include Mechanical Engineering, Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Accounting, Banking and Finance and Business Administration.

Expressing his joy over the development, the Vice-Chancellor, OOU, Prof Odutlola Osilesi, attributed the success of the institution to the moral and financial support from the Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, the Governing Council as well as commitments demonstrated by staff and students and other stakeholders.

He, however, added that the university’s goal is to have her outstanding programmes accredited and also attain academic peak globally.

In a related development, the apex regulatory body for university education has also approved all the 11 programmes presented to it by the Covenant University, Ota for accreditation. Some of the accredited programmes, according to NUC, include Accounting, Banking and Finance, Political Science, Mass Communication, Sociology etc.

It would be recalled that in 2005, the NUC approved all the 16 mature programmes of CU and also rated it overall best in a nationwide accreditation exercise of that year.

Also in 2006, the three academic programmes put forward by the university for NUC accreditation exercise received full accreditation. The programmes are Policy and Strategic Studies, Management Information System and Information and Communication Technology.

FG Launches New School Curriculum

0

The federal government has launched a new curriculum known as the new basic education curriculum for primary and junior secondary schools.

The new curriculum is said to address amongst other things, issues of value re- orientation, poverty eradication, critical thinking, entrepreneurship and life skills.

The Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) is responsible for the compilation and completion of curriculum used as a guide to qualitative education in both primary and secondary schools.

The National Council on Education (NCE) has already approved the curriculum and plans are in high gear to produce the curriculum in mass for immediate use in schools.

The executive secretary of the NERDC, Professor Godswill Obioma presenting the new curriculum to other stakeholders in the education sector at the Education Resource Centre,Abuja said the new curriculum seeks to correct the abnormalities of the former one which was lacking in the areas of human capacity development.

Professor Obioma sensitising teachers on the advantages and effectiveness of the new basic education curriculum said it allows and gives opportunity for the students to be taught skills and educate them on the need to appreciate their culture.

He added that if teachers adequately implement the curriculum then students would be able to interact very well, which would sensitise the environment and promote peace and development in the country.

A feature of the new curriculum is the phasing out of primary science and integrated science for what is now known as Basic Science and Technology, which according to the Obioma prepares a child adequately for the higher studies by providing a solid foundation on which to build upon.

He said that Information Communication Technology (ICT) has been introduced into the primary school curriculum, alongside culture and creative art all to build the child for the hazards of the future.

In an interview with Daily Trust, Obioma said they intend to implement the curriculum on a piece meal basis, to allow for proper planning and self development. He said, “we would start from primary one and gradually phase out the old primary school curriculum, we also start with JSS 1 and phase out that of the junior secondary school.

“The curriculum has two component, the primary and junior secondary curriculum, that was the initial plans by the council on education last year , but now we have done an advocacy nation- wide on the curriculum, and they all agree that the curriculum be introduced from primary one and then taken up gradually.”

Ogun Universities Leads Computer Competition

0

The University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (UNAAB) and Bells University of Technology, Ota both in Ogun state won the gold and bronze medal respectively in the first ever Nigerian Universities Computer Programming Contest which features 25 universities.

The tournament was organised by the National Mathematical Centre (NMC) to tests the skill and ability of the students in writing computer programs and to choose the country’s representative for the ACM (Association of Computer Machinery)  International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals. The global contest is an annual event designed to help universities and countries advance computer education, research and professionalism. It is organised at country or national, regional or continental and world levels, the last being the finals.

UNAAB’s victory  won her the ticket to represent Nigeria at the Regional Contest taking place in Egypt next month. But, due to the fact that the contest was just beginning in Nigeria and participants were yet to gain enough experience, UNAAB would only attend the regional contest in an observer status.

The world finals (the 32nd) sponsored by IBM will hold next year, April 6 – 10, in Fairmont Bariff Springs, Alberta, Canada.

Poly Admission: NBTE clears MAPOLY, YABATECH, 19 others

2

The National Board for Technical Education has given the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Ogun State, the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos and 19 others a clean bill of health to admit candidates into all programmes on offer in their respective institutions.

The NBTE had barred 32 polytechnics in the country from admitting fresh candidates into business and art-related courses for the 2006/2007 academics session. The NBTE Executive Secretary, Dr. Nuru Yakubu, had last week said that the supervisory agency took the decision because the affected institutions exceeded the 70:30 admission ratio in favour of technology-based programmes granted them by the National Policy of Education.

The action had unsettled many stakeholders as some candidates who sat for the 2007/2008 Monotechnics, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education Matriculation Examination had besieged YABATECH and MAPOLY to find out the true position of their preferred course of study.

But the NBTE Public Officer, Mr. Lawal Hafiz, in a telephone chat with our correspondent, said that only 32 of the polytechnics were directed to admit fresh students for their technology programmes.

“The remaining 21 are not affected. They have been playing the game according to the rule. The national policy says that student ratio in polytechnic should be 70:30, but some of them are negating this simple rule, he said.

He explained that the NBTE had given the affected institutions enough time to regulate their admission policy accordance with the rules.

“But we are surprised that they have bluntly refused. Now that the NBTE is wielding the big stick, they are complaining. We are not bothered. Things should be done normally.”

Hafix, however, said that MAPOLY and YABATECH were never on the list of the institutions that has been barred from admitting students that had bias for business and art related courses.

“MAPOLY and YABATECH and 19 others have no such problem. They have been cleared to admit fresh student into all their programmes. We are aware of a newspaper publication that included YABATECH on the list of those stopped. It is an error.”

He said that other polytechnic that had been granted by the NBTE to admit fresh students into all its programme include the Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger State, Federal Polytechnic, Offa, Kwara State, Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, Ramat Polytechnic Maiduguri, Bornu State, and the Universal College of Technology, Ile Ife, Osun State.

With this development only MAPOLY, YABATECH and the UCT, Ile Ife, have been cleared too admit students into management related courses for 2007/2008 academic session in the South West.

The implication of this is that thousand of candidates who had applied for these courses in polytechnic in the zone during the 2007 MPCE examination, may have to wait a little longer before they could live their dreams of securing admission to polytechnics.

The Public Relations Officer of MAPOLY. Mr. Yemi Ajibola, said the action had sent jitters down the spine of many stakeholders in MAPOLY. He, however, said that a letter dated October 15, 2007, and signed by the NBTE s Director of Programmes, Dr. M.S. Abubakar, which cleared the institution, had doused the tension in the polytechnic.

0

Determined to improve the state of infrastructure in public schools in Ogun State, the state executive council has approved N1.4bn for the renovation of dilapidated buildings in its schools.

Also, the state government has approved the establishment of the Gateway Industrial Petrol Gas Training Institute with a mandate to produce middle level manpower for the petroleum energy sector.

The state Commissioner for Education, Prof. Segun Awonusi, was quoted in a statement signed by the Information Officer to the state Governor, Mr. Kunle Ewuoso, after the last state executive council meeting to have said that GITI would perform functions similar to that of the Petroleum Training Institute, Warri, Delta State.

According to Ewuoso, the government took the decision to spend that much on the renovation of 271 secondary and primary school spread across the state in order to raise the standard of education.

Ewuoso quoted the commissioner as saying that, “the present administration at inception set up a Task Force, which visited 271 schools, and they were able to inspect 744 blocks. “As a result government was able too generate a data base on the number of schools to be rehabilitated, which is costing N1.4b.”

He added that since it was impossible for government to spend N1.4b on the rehabilitation of schools at once because of its limited resources, its had concluded arrangements that between 10 and 15 schools would be renovated on a monthly basis until all the 744 blocks were renovated.

Awonusi, while justifying the establishment of the GITI, said that the challenges of technical manpower the state would face when it started the exploration of oil and gas found in commercial quantity in the state, informed the establishment of the institute.

He explained that the establishment of the institute was an additional opportunity for youths in the state to acquire technical skills that would make them marketable in the nations oil industry.

According to Ewuoso the institute will be located in Oni, Ogun Waterside Local Governemt Area of the state, adding that government has approved the immediate construction of workshops and the renovation of the existing structure at the site.

The state government, Ewuoso said, had also approved the immediate employment of 20 teachers adding that the teachers would be posted to the Ogun Waterside LGA of the state, where it has been discovered that there was shortage of teachers.

JAMB Clarifies Issues On Remedial Programmes

1

THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has clarified its stand on remedial programmes being run by some Universities. JAMB Registrar, Prof Dibu Ojerinde has been quoted by several newspapers as having announced that the board was cancelling remedial programmes in the affected universities.

But the board’s Information Officer, Chinwe Ogbuka in a letter to The Guardian, stated that the various comments made and newspaper editorials written over the issue showed that many people do not understand the real issue about remedial programmes.

Her letter partly read: “Prof. Ojerinde was quoted extensively by reporters as saying that, by next year all candidates seeking admission into the nation’s Polytechnics and Colleges of Education must sit for the MPCE examination. The Registrar was equally reported to have said that remedial programmes would no longer be accepted as a criterion for admission of candidates into higher institutions in the country.

“The Registrar, who was responding to questions from journalists at a press conference, said that the decision to put a stop to the use remedial programmes results for direct admission was informed by the desire to raise the quality of candidates being admitted into Polytechnics and Colleges of Education across the country.

“The Registrar’s comment on remedial programmes became so topical, that two national newspapers wrote editorials on the matter. In the editorials (which is the opinion of the Newspapers on the issue), the papers agreed with the Board on the aspect of the cancellation of remedial programmes for admission in order to protect the integrity of the admission process and ensure that qualify candidates are admitted into the Institutions.

“But, the papers were quick to counter the views of JAMB by saying “we must, however, point out that JAMB is not exactly correct in its supposition that Pre-Degree and Remedial programmes are only undertaken by students who are deficient in their minimum O’ level qualifications.

May I at this point correct the misconceptions and erroneous impression about the remedial programmes being “banned”. It is pertinent to mention that the issue of not using results of remedial programmes for Direct Entry Admission into higher institutions in the country is not a new policy by JAMB. Rather, the board only wants to implement the policy made by the government.

“The Federal Government had, as far back as 1998, through the Federal Ministry of Education, issued directives to Vice Chancellors of all Universities, Rectors of all Polytechnics and Provosts of all Colleges of Education on remedial and other related programmes in tertiary institutions.

“Also the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in 2000 gave institutions approval to run remedial programmes with clearly spelt out conditions. According to the council’s approval, remedial programmes are, in all cases, to be aimed at remedying registration deficiencies in respect of Degree, Diploma or NCE programmes as the case may be, especially when such deficiencies affect candidates from Educationally Less Developed States.

“One of the conditions approved by the FEC for running remedial programmes by the institutions was that, such programmes are to be accredited by their respective accrediting bodies namely, the National Universities Commission (NUC) for Universities, National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) for Polytechnics and National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) for Colleges of Education. In addition to other conditions approved for the remedial programmes, the FEC directed that “all Remedial candidates are to sit for the requisite selection examination (UME or MPCE as the case may be) in order to qualify for absorption into the programme.”

“Thus Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde or JAMB did not introduce any new policy that says that remedial candidates must sit for JAMB Matriculation Examinations for admission into Higher Institutions. It is equally of note that institutions have continued to violate conditions and guidelines approved by the Federal Executive Council for running remedial programmes.

“In a letter to Heads of Institutions on Matriculation and Admissions into Tertiary Institutions, the then Minister of Education, Dr. Sam Olaiya Oni reminded them that JAMB is empowered to conduct admissions into tertiary institutions.

“The letter reads in parts, “For the purpose of clarity, you are to note that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s enabling Degree 33 of 1978 and its subsequent amendments confer on the Board the determination of Matriculation requirements and placement of suitably qualified candidates into courses and programmes leading to the award of Degree, National Diploma (ND) and Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE).”

“Dr. Oni further said that, “remedial programmes are aimed at only remedying deficiencies in pre-requisite qualifications of prospective candidates for admissions and are NOT alternatives for normal entrance into tertiary institutions nor should the beneficiaries of these programmes be preferred to other applicants who do not have to go through the same programmes”.

This was the point Prof. Ojerinde explained at the press conference, that the remedial programmes only allow candidates to remedy their deficiencies in their qualifications and then sit for JAMB Matriculation examination.

“It is worthy to note that about three years ago, the Joint Consultative Policy Committee on Admissions into Degree Awarding Institutions in Nigeria resolved that regularization of admissions should stop. But unfortunately, Universities are yet to comply. The Policy Committee meeting was attended by all Heads of Degree-Awarding Institutions, Executive Secretary of NUC, JAMB and Chairmen of the Senate and House Committees on Education.

“Direct adsorption of remedial candidates by Institutions without recourse to JAMB does not only give a distorted information about the number of candidates in the nation’s Tertiary Institutions but also makes effective planning difficult. For example, the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) office will like to know how many graduates are coming for service in the years ahead. Without proper admission procedure, the National Youths Service Corps will not be given correct statistics of Corps members to be mobilized in a service year.

Ogun Promotes ICT-Based Education

0

Ogun State government has taken delivery of another batch of 420 computers under its School-Net programme for secondary schools across the three senatorial districts. Under the initiative, all secondary schools are to have computer laboratories to be manned by a trained IT teacher.

Delivering the work stations to beneficiary schools on Friday, the consultant to the state governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel on information communication technology (ICT), Mr. Folorunsho Ali said the idea was to foster knowledge in the areas of socio-economic and political development in response to global competitiveness.

The School-Net has so far covered 128 secondary schools in the state since inception in 2004, while the latest delivery would be shared among 40 schools under its third phase, Ali stated.

Ali lauded the initiative of the governor in IT development, saying the government would soon begin the connection of primary schools to the project “apparently to catch them young”.

The School-Net project manager, Mr. Tunde Kuku allayed fears that the laboratories would go the way of science laboratories in the past, with assurances that CISCO trained professionals would do routine maintenance of the laboratories through the trained teachers.

He agreed with the School-Net coordinator, Mr. Tunji Akoni that exposing the secondary schools students to systems would give them an edge over the contemporaries and position them at advantage for global competition.
