Obafemi Awolowo University has had its NUC accreditation for Law, Dentristry and two other courses withdrawn. The National Universities Commission (NUC) withdraws accreditation for five (5) courses offered at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).
NUC Withdraws OAU’s Accreditation For Law, Dentistry, Botany and Fine Arts
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has reportedly suspended the university’s law, dentistry, medical rehabilitation, and botany programmes.
In text messages, the school asked admission seekers for the 2018/2019 academic year they will not be given admission into Law, Botany, Dentistry, Fine Arts and Medical Rehabilitation as JAMB had so advised due to accreditation issues.
“Your first choice course did not receive accreditation. Login to your profile and change course / institution,” the text message read.
When contacted, OAU spokesperson, Abiodun Olanrewaju said the institution “will sort it out”.
The spokesperson of JAMB Fabian Benjamin advised “the candidates to go on and change” the courses.

The spokesperson of the National Universities Commission (NUC) in a text message Sunday night told PREMIUM TIMES the programmes had been denied accreditation, but said it did not translate to full suspension.
“In the actual sense, Medical Rehabilitation has full accreditation status,” he said.
A mother, Suliyat Aina, told PREMIUM TIMES that the university did not get things right as the notification came as a shock.
“My son ran to me showing me the text message he got from JAMB with respect to the course, he applied to study in Ife (Botany). He was confused but we could do nothing,” she said. I made him understand that the best for him is to change his course. I stay in Ife and would not want him to go far away from home at his age.” (Source: Premium Times)
