VC points the way forward Towards Transforming Nigerian Universities' Quality

  

The Vice Chancellor, Federal University Oye –Ekiti, Prof. Isaac U Asuzu, has stated that quality education and national development are achievable if only government, private agencies and individuals invest in education at all levels and thus join hands in the pursuit for quality education for all.vc points way out

The Vice Chancellor made this assertion during the monthly university wide lecture held at the university Main Auditorium, Oye-Ekiti. He emphasised the need to motivate academics with a new vision of education in the areas of global networking, mobility and collaboration as well as internationalization, which leads to mobility of academies, students, and professionals, giving rise to universalization of curricula to enable them take the leadership required to respond to the nation’s challenges.

According to the Vice Chancellor, there is need for a change in learning methods from the old system of rote learning to that of critical thinking and judgement. Ways of handling issues must also not stick to convention so long as there are better and more innovative ways.

Prof. Asuzu, who mentioned poor quality of secondary education as one of the challenges to good academic standard in our tertiary institutions stated that there had not been any efficient system of getting the right calibre of students into our tertiary institutions, since Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) seems to be overwhelmed by the number of candidates that seek admission each year. This challenge has therefore necessitated the Nigerian universities’ recourse to internal screening mechanism popularly referred to as Post UTME.

According to him, “To stem the issues of cultism and other social vices in our institutions of higher learning, management, and authorities concerned should insist on zero tolerance to such vices rather than subscribe to cultism as a means of protection”. He observed that students no longer take serious interest in their studies. Consequently, “management of Federal University, Oye - Ekiti will insist on zero tolerance to examination malpractice and cultism”, he concluded.
