UNILORIN Seeks NUC Approval To Increase Its Admission Quota

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof. Abdul Ganiyu Ambali (OON), has announced that the University would admit more students for the 2016/2017 academic session, if on-going discussions with the National Universities Commission (NUC) yield positive result.

Prof. Ambali, who disclosed this penultimate Sunday (June 26, 2016) during the annual Iftar/interactive session with journalists in Kwara State, said that the University authority was already putting necessary modalities in place towards accommodating more students.

He disclosed that in view of this, more lecture theatres, more class rooms, and more hostels are being built to make learning and teaching more conducive for both students and staff.

The Vice-Chancellor explained that discussion was on-going with the National Universities Commission (NUC) on the need to increase the carrying capacity of the University of Ilorin, which is the most sought-after tertiary institution by admission applicants.

Prof. Ambali expressed confidence that the request would be considered by the NUC following the obvious provision of enabling environment created by the University aimed at advancing teaching, research and community service, the tripartite mandates of all ivory towers.

Speaking on the recent rumour that the University had released the modality for its post-UTME screening, Prof. Ambali said it was baseless and unfounded.He explained that the authority of the University of Ilorin was yet to release either the date or modalities for the admission processes and urged admission seekers and their parents to disregard the fake modality that has gone viral on the social media.

The Vice-Chancellor reiterated the University's commitment to maintain and sustain its uncommon academic integrity in the interest of not only the members of the University community but also the entire world.

The get-together was moderated by the Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs, University of Ilorin, Mr Kunle Akogun, and attended by the Director, Center for Peace and Strategic Studies, Dr Mahfouz Adedimeji; the Chairman, Editorial Board of Unilorin Bulletin, Dr Lukman Azeez; and journalists from the print and electronic media in the state.
