Published

on

The best students of the Santa Mary Nursery and Primary school 2, Nibo, Anambra state, were, yesterday, presented with goats.

A goat was given to each student that came first in their respective classes from primary one to six. The move is an initiative of the Ora Goat Project.


According to a report by Tobenna Obiano, the school organisers said:

“The essence of the project is to inculcate the habit of caring in the Children and also to assist the children in paying their school fees through the proceeds from the goats as it begins to multiply.



As the children learn how to care for the goats, they will as well learn how to care for themselves, parents, family, etc and the society at large especially in this milieu where nobody hardly cares”

Forget About NYSC For Now If You Are Graduating From These Schools

Published

on

Graduating students at the University of Agriculture, Makurdi and Benue State University is not going to be allowed to participate in the NYSC program for two years.

According to the Daily Post, the management of the National Youth Service Corps has banned the two institutions from sending their students for the mandatory one-year national service.

The universities were banned after the NYSC allegedly discovered that the management of the two schools help students to manipulate their age to make them eligible for the one year program.

However, the Vice Chancellor of the Benue State University, Professor Moses Kembe has reportedly reacted to the age-cheat allegation saying the University management was not involved in age manipulation.

Kembe explained that the students manipulated the age themselves.

He, therefore, appealed to the NYSC authorities to leave out the students and punish the universities involved only.

Daily Post also reports that graduates of the affected Universities were denied access to the NYSC registration portal.

Meanwhile, NYSC has extended the ongoing online registration exercise for the Batch C prospective Corps members to Friday, October 19, 2018.

‘Best poly in Nigeria is Federal Polytechnic Nekede’

Published

on

 

The Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri in Imo is the best polytechnic in Nigeria, according to the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).

The Executive Secretary of the Board, Dr Masa’udu Kazaure made this known in Kaduna on Thursday, at the end of the Second Regular Meeting of the NBTE Governing Board. The meeting was chaired by Prof. Modupe Adelabu.

Kazaure explained that the polytechnic emerged the best after scoring 85.08 per cent in the assessment of 112 federal, state and private polytechnics in the country, in the pilot ranking of Nigerian polytechnics. He said that the exercise covered 2015/2016 and 206/2017 academic sessions.

He said that the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro, Ogun came second with 73.08 per cent, while Kaduna Polytechnic, Kaduna State came third with 72.31 per cent. Other polytechnics in the top 10 included The Polytechnic Ibadan, Oyo State, ranked fourth with 67.69 per cent; Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger, fifth, 65.38 per cent; and Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo, sixth, with 63.85 per cent. Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu, Enugu State, seventh, with 62.31 per cent. Federal Polytechnic Offa, Kwara, Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Ondo State and Yaba College of Technology, Yaba, Lagos State were ranked eighth with 60.77 per cent.

Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra was ranked 11th with 60.00 per cent and Federal Polytechnic, Idah, Kogi, occupied the 12th position with 59.23 per cent. The NBTE boss also said that when disaggregated by ownership, the Federal Polytechnic Nekede also emerged the best Federal Polytechnic in the country followed by Federal Polytechnic Ilaro and Kaduna Polytechnic. “The Polytechnic Ibadan, IMT and Rufus Giwa polytechnics were the highest ranked among state polytechnics, while Lagos City Polytechnic is the highest ranked private polytechnic and the 16th in the country. “Dorben Polytechnic and Heritage Polytechnic were the second and third best private polytechnic in the country. Kazaure explained that the polytechnics were ranked based on total number of programmes with full accreditation in the last two years and percentage of programmes with full accreditation. “Other criteria include proportion of academic staff showing the right mix, that is, chief lecturer and principal lecturer down to assistant lecturer; and ability of institution to introduce programme in new and emerging fields. “They were equally assessed based on capacity building of staff both within and outside Nigeria, teaching quality, including staff /student ratio and ratio of full-time to part-time staff. “Other areas are availability of current Campus Master Plan, Strategic Plan, and Academic Brief; percentage of academic staff with relevant higher qualification and professional registration; and 70:30 technology-non-technology enrolment ratio. “Another consideration was the incorporation of entrepreneurship education into the institute’s curriculum and fully established Entrepreneurship Development Centre,” he said.

He said other issues discussed by the board borders on quality assurance, accreditation, resource inspection visits and proliferation of illegal technical and health institutions in the country. He said that 191 out of the 239 programmes in 41 polytechnics visited for accreditation between June and September 2018 were granted full accreditation while 48 got interim accreditation. He also said that 117 programmes were scrutinised for resource inspection within the same period and 94 programmes were granted interim accreditation to commence operation, while 23 were denied. “Four proposed private polytechnics were also visited for approval and licensing within the period under review and only one was recommended while three were asked to remedy some identified deficiencies.

“The governing board also approved a memorandum of understanding with Environmental Health Officers Registration Council of Nigeria to reduce the burden of duplication of quality assurance visitation and accreditation activities. “The board also agreed to hold meetings with relevant stakeholders to put an end to proliferation of illegal technical institutions and unapproved private health institutions operating in the county. “The board particularly commended the effort of the Kaduna State Commissioner for Health, Dr Paul Dogo for expressing concern to the board on illegal health institutions operating in the state,” he said. Kazaure added that the board equally frowned at the conversion of colleges of agriculture to polytechnics by some state governments and agreed to take necessary actions to put a stop to the development.

Published

on

The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, has lost accreditation for four of the courses offered in the institution.
The National Universities Commission reportedly suspended the university’s law, dentistry, medical rehabilitation, and botany programmes, The Cable reports.
Prospective students who selected any of the four courses in the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination have been asked to change their course or institution.
A message was sent to the candidates by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to inform them of the changes.
“Your first choice course did not receive accreditation. Login to your profile and change course/institutions,” the message read.
This is not the first time the institution is experiencing this as the accreditation of the Law Faculty was previously withdrawn in 2006.
The Cable notes that there are also reports that botany never got full accreditation since its inception as a course at the university.
The institution’s spokesperson, Mr Abiodun Olarenwaju, confirmed the development to The Cable. Olarenwaju, however, said the withdrawal of accreditation would be sorted out by September.
“We are going to sort it out, latest by September, and everything will cool.
