Hajiya Maryam Mohammed, Information Officer of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja), has made it known that forty-nine out of fifty academic programmes of the institution have been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
The Information officer made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) while reacting to reports that the institution had the highest number of unaccredited programmes.
Mohammed stated that the accreditation of UniAbuja courses was done by the NUC and other relevant professional agencies in the country.
“As it is today, we have fifty programmes in the university and forty-nine of them have been accredited by NUC and one was turned down, but we are working on it to get it back on board.
“The report making rounds online that UniAbuja has the highest number of unaccredited courses is a 2016 reoprt even before the NUC visited the institution.
“NUC has not paid another visit recently, neither has any professional body come around to strip us off accrditation, so am surprised the way people are talking about our accreditation,” she stated.
She added by saying that the institution had put all necessary requirements in place and was looking forward to getting ninety-five per cent accreditation for the development of education in the country.
