Less than a week after the National Universities Commission(NUC) announced the suspension of all part-time programmes in Nigerian Universities, statisticians have estimated that about 10 million students, mostly workers, who are part of the labour market, would be affected by the action.
The Stakeholders in the Nigerian education sector have expressed displeasure with the decision to suspend part-time programmes in Nigerian universities.
In arriving at the decision, the National Universities Commission(NUC) had argued that the accreditation of 30 courses in the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) would satisfy the needs of this category of Nigerian students who see part-time studies as a way of improving themselves and enhancing their careers.
The situation right now, is that, following the suspension of these programmes, would vastly affect the Nations literacy level, by putting about 10 million students, seeking for literacy, out of school.
Whatever the NUC has In mind, by taking the action, Are they right or wrong, we are yet to find out, but we will soon.
