quality assurance ensures academic quality
Quality assurance ensures academic quality are the words of The Vice-Chancellor of Joseph Ayo Babalola University, Professor Olasebikan Fakolujo, when he described the effort of the National Universities Commission on quality assurance as the sure way to the standard educational system in Nigeria.
While commending the efforts of the apex regulatory institution for university education in Nigeria to the accreditation team in JABU, Fakolujo stressed that “the issue of sustaining quality assurance is not an easy task and without adequate and regular quality assurance exercise, the quality of the educational system would have been watered down”.
The accreditation team leader, Professor Farouk Umar said “I have heard so much about this institution and I am happy to be here. I want the management to know the essence of accreditation is to ensure a good quality educational system in the institution. I promise to do the work painstakingly without any form of witch-hunt so I solicit maximum cooperation.
At the exit briefing, Farouk commended the efforts of the management in making adequate provision of both human and material resources available. He encouraged the Management to continue in such a spirit so that competent and well-equipped graduates of the University would be chunked out periodically.
