NUC suspends Obafemi Awolowo University’s accreditation for Law, Dentistry, 2 other courses

The Universities Commission (NUC) has suspended accreditation on four courses in the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), TheCable is reporting.

The courses include law, dentistry, medical rehabilitation, and botany.

According to TheCable, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) sent a message to candidates who applied for any of the courses to change their course or institution.

The message read: “Your first choice course did not receive accreditation. Login to your profile and change course/institutions.”

Confirming the development to TheCable, the university’s PRO Abiodun Olarenwaju said: “We are going to sort it out, latest by September, and everything will come back to shape.”

This is not the first time OAU has fallen into such troubles as the accreditation of the law faculty was previously withdrawn in 2006.

There are also reports that botany never got full accreditation since its inception as a course of study at the university.
