NUC Approves Upgrade of Osun College of Education To Varsity

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved the upgrade of the Osun State College of Education, Ilesa, to a full-fledged University to be called the University of Ilesa, making it the 220th university in Nigeria.

The Commission said the approval followed a request by the state government for the upgrade, and their ability to meet the criteria for the establishment of a new university or upgrade of an existing institution.

NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, handed over the provisional license of the new institution to the officials of the state government led by the governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, at NUC headquarters in Abuja, on Thursday.

In his remarks, the NUC boss congratulated the State government for the success and encouraged the management of the new university to approach the Commission for any professional or institutional support so that won’t operate contrary to established guidelines which might attract severe sanctions.

He said that action applications were expedited because of the promise NUC had earlier made to the state during the dissolution of the “marriage” it had with Oyo State regarding the ownership and management of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho, Oyo State.
