Authorities of the University of Jos (UNIJOS) on Wednesday have confirmed the accreditation of five courses of the institution by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
A statement by Mr. Abdullahi Abdullahi, Deputy Registrar, Information and Publications, stated that the confirmation became necessary in view of rumours making the rounds that the programmes were nor accredited.
“The attention of UNIJOS management has been drawn to misleading information being circulated over the accreditation status of some programmes being offered by the university.
“These rumours have it that History and International Relations, Medical Laboratory Science, Biochemistry, and Science Laboratory Technology, have been accredited by NUC and are therefore not certified to be taught in the institution.
“The management wishes to state categorically that the above mentioned programmes are fully accredited. The accreditation status still subsists at the very least until the next round of accreditation exercises,” Abdullahi stated.
The statement also urged the general public to disregard the false information in its entirety as it was a complete mispresentation of the facts.
