The Secretary-General of the Association of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (AVCNU), Professor Michael Faborode, has revealed reasons why the National Universities Commission(NUC) suspended part-time programmes in universities in the country, saying that it is done to put university education on the right footing.

Professor Faborode, who was a former vice chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, remarked that the part-time programmes had been abused by some universities, as some people had turned it into money making venture.

He said: “In this country, we put all sorts of things such as sharp practices, examination malpractices, fraud and 419 in what we do and we must crush thembecause these are the things that impede progress. We cannot say that becauseeverybody must go to the university that we overlook somethings, illegal universities must not be allowed to operate because they shortchange and create problems for us.

“They make our degrees questionable when they go outside this country because they are not doing the right thing. Anybody who wants to do things must do it properly and legally too.

“People do things illegally here. Do you know that some people are running illegal NYSC camps and those who graduate from illegal institutions may not be able to do anything. So, people have abused the issue of part-time programmes.

  2. Okunbanjo Olajide says:

    I dont tink NUC gets it ryt to dat xtent.We all know dat PT programmes are meant 4 money making by our university but d suspension makes no sense.D universities need funds nd d govt is not providing d funds 4 dem.D motive of establishin private universities is d same wit d PT programmes of Govt universities- to make money.

  3. To my own point of view part time is meant for those who are still struggling to earn a living and they still have more to further there education,So i wonder why NUC suspend it,i’m fed up.

  4. Peterson degree says:

    I think i support nuc’s motion because we dn’t even know who the real students are.but ptp has saved much lives u know? Because most student had ealier been frostrated by jamb,pume and admission stress.

  5. The federal government should do something about the part time programme in the federal universities,espercialy those who are doing five years programme. Some of those in part time programme are not up to 30yrs and in which they suppose to go for NYSC. By so doing it will limit the going for NYSC Through backdoor. The FG should pls considered some certain things because without NYSC you cant get a job pls

  6. Christy. says:

    Most people go to part time because they re tired of writing jamb.just imagine a person writing jamb 5 times that person will be so tired cos d time he/she will use to take another jamb form will be enough to take a part time form nd start his studies. Most unversity av a certain numbers of candidate to admite so Ʊ can pass ur jamb or pume nd not be sure of ur admission cos wen D̶̲̥̅̊ε̲̣̣̣̥γ̲̣̣̥ get d numbers D̶̲̥̅̊ε̲̣̣̣̥γ̲̣̣̥ can accommodate they will stop admitting.Since they av suspend part time let them make effort to create more admision Ƒσя those who want to be a full time student. Cos if Ʊ ask those who re in part time they will tell how many times they av written jamb Ά̲̣̣̣̥п̥̥̲̣̣̣ϑ let them find solutions for those who re in part time nd re not up to 30yrs so that they will be going Ƒσя service.Because its the same thing those in full time Ά̲̣̣̣̥п̥̥̲̣̣̣ϑ those in part time re learning.

  7. upto know nuc dint allow ptp to move on. are dey still under suspention? pls answer me. thnk u.

  8. pls, this is my contribution. I belive that there are illegal universities but i know that the suspession part time is not the best, lets look at it like this what if ur not opportuned to go to the university like 1 who lost his or her parents when he or she was too young n grow up wit much stress n strugle coping wit a job to study in the university? I mean lets be fair to ourselves we al knw how hard things are in this contry, instead lets set up a body to fish out n resolve them instead of using our power without feelings 4 others. Thanks 4 this orpportunity.
