By Babs Oyetoro
As Anchor University patiently awaits the outcome of the National Universities Commission (NUC) Resource Verification visitation which took place recently, the vice chancellor, Professor Samuel Oye Bandele is confident that the institution would receive the nod of the regulatory body to commence the new programmes planned for this session.

Prof. Bandele’s optimism was based on the premise that the school authority worked assiduously to ensure that all the requirements of NUC were provided for knowing full well that the regulatory body would not compromise on its standards.


“We are aware of the requirements of NUC and we did everything humanly possible to put everything in place before the visitation by NUC. Besides, we know that the NUC is a credible body that will not compromise its standards and we appreciate this stand too”, he disclosed.

The university don informed that the school management listed four professional courses for verification ahead of the new academic session. The courses are: LLB Law, B.NSc Nursing Science, BSc Architecture and BMLS, Medical Laboratory Science.

He, however, commended the National Universities Commission for its quick response to the school request saying the body has been playing pivotal role in the development of education in Nigeria.

He also identified these three bodies- NUC, JAMB and TETFUND as the bedrock of the Nigerian educational system.

According to him, “JAMB ensures quality assurance in admission, NUC emphasises quality output in intakes while TETFUND ensures infrastructural qualities as well as sponsorship of teaching and non-teaching staff for quality delivery”.

He described the headship of these bodies as men of integrity and incorruptible whose main goals are quality delivery of education in Nigeria.

He finally thanked the NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Adamu Rasheed for maintaining an impartial relationship among Nigerian universities whether federal, state-owned or private with regard to quality education delivery.
