The Vice-Chancellor, Crawford University, Igbesa, Ogun State, Prof. Samson Ayanlaja, has said that the 100 per cent success the institution recorded at the accreditation exercise carried out by the National Universities Commission is a testimony to the determination of the university to provide globally competitive education to its students.
This was contained in a statement signed by the VC after the NUC released the result of the accreditation it conducted on programmes on offer in the nation’s universities.
According to him, the rating of the university’s programmes by the NUC is an attestation to the fact that “Crawford programmes are all in excellent standing in content, context and operation.”
Giving a breakdown of the NUC result, Ayanlaja stated that the university’s Accounting, Business Administration, Banking and Finance, Economics, Industrial Relations and Personnel Management, Marketing, Sociology, Political Science and International Relations earned full accreditation.
He added that the institution’s Biochemistry, Microbiology, Industrial Chemistry and Physics with electronics also earned full accreditation status, while Geology and Mineral Sciences had earlier been given clean bill of health by the NUC .
Ayanlaja, however, stated that the university’s Computer Science and Information and Communication Technology programmes had interim accreditation status, adding that efforts were on to rectify the only deficiency observed by the NUC.
“The result of course represents our concerted efforts aimed at providing our students and members of staff the needed impetus to excel in their chosen careers. We are poised to seeing that our burning aspirations and heartfelt desires to produce well-rounded graduates moulded in the fear of God are achieved,” he stated.
He added that the result was an indication that the institution was on the right path of fulfilling its goals of producing world beaters.
