The suspension of all Part-time programmes in Nigerian Universities

According to the report; Executive Secretary of the commission, Professor Julius Okojie, briefing newsmen in Abuja on Monday said part-time programmes had been abused by universities.

He said the decision was aimed at rationalising the programmes so as to bring them in line with global best practices and standards.

 Okojie said the suspension became imperative in view of the fact that some universities run part-time programmes illegally and some other cases the institutions have over-bloated population in the admission process.
 He disclosed that when the ban would eventually be lifted, admission to part-time programme would not exceed 20 per cent intake, adding that lectures for all part-time programmes would be restricted to university campuses only.

 He said: “For now, all part-time programmes are suspended, we are going to streamline them. In effect, we should not have more than 20 per cent of the total students’ population on part-time programmes.

 “All part-time programmes must be located on campus, we don't want satellite campuses again.” He stressed that regulation was the major part of the commission's activities and NUC would not hesitate to wield the big stick on any defaulting institution.
