The National Universities Commission (NUC) has stated plans to scrap the diploma programmes run at undergraduate level in Nigerian universities. The development was made known by the Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, in Abuja earlier this week, when he received the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Masaudu Kazaure.
“We are going to formally put a deadline on it, that there should be no diploma again to be run by universities, let us allow those that are statutory, allowed to run diploma programmes, the polytechnics, to continue with them,” he said.
While making the announcement, the Executive Secretary of National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Kazaure, made use of the medium to dispel the rumours that the federal government had converted the Kaduna Polytechnic and Yaba College of Technology to City University.
It would be recalled, the NUC had announced a list of unaccredited courses in Nigerian universities.
The Commission had warned that any certificate issued for these courses will be considered void.
