The National Universities Commission (NUC) has
urged all private universities operating in Nigeria to uphold the
Commission’s operational guidelines and procedures to ensure quality
graduate outputs, in the best interest of the Nigerian University
System (NUS) and the country as a whole.
The Executive Secretary of NUC, Professor Julius A. Okojie, made the call during the 2nd Convocation Ceremony of Salem University (SU), Lokoja, held on 29 November, 2014, at the University Main Campus.
Professor Okojie advised the private
institutions to adhere strictly to the laid down regulations, especially
those affecting governance structure, the roles and duties of the
principal officers in the university administration, warning that
erring universities would be sanctioned
appropriately.
He added that unless there was a free hand for the university administrators to operate, the mission and vision of the
universities could not be achieved.
The Executive Secretary, who
was represented by the NUC Visiting Professor Adebisi Balogun,
commended Salem University for its academic stability, adding that the
Institution had availed itself the opportunities provided by upholding
the operational guidelines of the NUC.
He congratulated the graduands, whom
he described as young achievers and future leaders, admonishing them to
be good ambassadors of the Institution wherever they might find
themselves.
Best of luck To You all…
