The Management of the University of Jos has debunked misleading information being circulated; especially on the social media on the accreditation status of some programmes being offered by the University.
The University in statement issued by its Deputy Registrar, Information and Publications, Abdullahi Abdullahi a copy of which was made available to THE NIGERIA STANDARD in Jos, Thursday, said “according to these fake online reports, some programmes being run in the University including History and International Relations, Medical Laboratory Science, Biochemistry, and Science Laboratory Technology, have not been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and are therefore not certified to be taught in the institution”.
“Management wishes to state categorically that the above mentioned programmes are fully accredited and the accreditation status still subsists at the very least until the next round of accreditation exercises.
“The general public is hereby advised to disregard this false information in its entirety as it is a complete misrepresentation of the facts on ground as can be attested to by JAMB’s approval for the University to admit Candidates into these programmes in the current Admission exercise” the statement maintained.
