OAU Clarifies Rumour Regarding Reaccreditaton Of Disaccredited Departments

The public relations officer of Obafemi Awolowo University, Mr. Abiodun Olanrewaju, has made clarifications as regards the accreditation of departments ongoing at the University.

Rumours have been going round the institution that the Faculty of Law, a department that lost accreditation during the last accreditation programme, has been reaccredited but information gotten from the PRO proves otherwise and clarified the process of the accreditation.

It should be recalled that five departments of the institution lost accreditation during the last accreditation programme. Law, Dentistry, Fine and Applied Arts, Botany and Family Nutrition are the departments hopeful of getting back their accreditation.

In a conversation with OAU Kilonshele, the PRO stated that the school will not be the one to officially announce the accreditation decisions.

“It’s not here that they will accredit, it is when the accreditation team gets back to Abuja. It’s the National University Commission (NUC) that will announce, not the school. They will write their report and submit to the NUC, the NUC will pronounce,” he said.

He also cited other universities that they have been to as examples. “All the universities that they have been to, you can’t see in the paper that they have accredited or not. OAU should not be an exception.”

He also praised the accreditation team and urged the university members to exercise caution.
