NUC To Shut Down Benue Varsity Law Faculty Over Lack Of Facilities




The Nigerian Universities Commission
(NUC) has concluded arrangements and will
soon withdraw accreditation of the law
faculty of the Benue State University (BSU),
Makurdi, Vice Chancellor of the institution,
Prof. Msugh Kembe has said.


Kembe, who stated this weekend while
fielding questions from newsmen in
Makurdi said the shut down of the faculty
became necessary by the Council of Legal
Education and NUC because the university
has not met the professional requirement.
According to him, the requirement for a
fully accreditated law faculty of any
universitas in the country were a well
furnished mute court, law building, law
clinic and library as well as proper mix of
professional staff which the BSU has not
met.


Kembe stated that the law faculty would
need N119m to construct the buildings in
order to meet the council’s requirements
which he, said the university cannot afford
now due to the nationwide financial
crunch.


He further said the sum of N100m was
released during the Governor Suswam
administration to a contractor (name
withheld) for the execution of projects in
the faculty, but that the contractor failed to
deliver the job.


The VC added that the contractor had
claimed it was owed a balance of N59m
which it said the university should offset
before the projects would be completed.
He however said he has made remarkable
achievements since he assumed office few
months ago.


These he said included constitution of
management committee on ICT,
computerization of departments,
directorates and centres, as well as
successful accreditation of 7 programmes
in the university.
