Joint Union of Tertiary Institutions (JUTI) Archives
The Nasarawa State chapter of the Joint Union of Tertiary Institutions (JUTI) has appealed to the state government to put in place modalities to ensure the accreditation of all courses in its tertiary institutions.
The Chairman of the Union, Mr. Samuel Bashayi, made the call today in the state capital - Lafia, when officials of the union paid a courtesy call on the Commissioner for Education, Ahmed Tijani-Aliyu.
He said if all the courses offered in the institutions are given full accreditation, it will enhance the quality of education in such schools.
He pointed out that the non-accreditation of some courses was militating against the advancement of the institutions.
The Chairman identified Nasarawa State Polytechnic and College of Agriculture, both in the state capital as worst hit by the non-accreditation of their courses – stressing that the implication was that certificates issued to graduates from unaccredited courses cannot stand the test of time.
He appealed to the state government to step into the situation and address it urgently to save the institutions from total collapse.
In his response, the Commissioner assured the union that the matter would be presented to the state governor for prompt action – just as he expressed government’s readiness to discuss with the union on measures to enhance the quality of education.
