Only B. Agric is Recognized by NUC



The Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Julius Okojie, has told the National Institute of Animmal Science (NIAS) that the Commission recognised only B. Agric as the approved nomenclature for degree programme in Agriculture in the Nigerian University System (NUS).
Receiving a delegation of NIAS on a courtesy visit, led by its President, Prof. I.F Adu, the NUC scribe stated that BSc. Animal Science was unknown to the Commission and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), as NUC had not granted approval to any Nigerian university to run and award a degree in Animal Science.
Prof. Okojie acknowledged that the Institute had a large Council of people and also an environmentally- friendly body, charging it to look into the issue of the harmonisation of the programmes with utmost sense of urgency as the NUC would not be dragged into the issue of segregation.
