KWHA warns tertiary institutions against admitting students for unaccredited courses

The leadership of the Kwara State House of Assembly on Wednesday warned state-owned tertiary institutions against admitting students for unaccredited courses, saying it would be a worthless effort and would not impact their future career prospects.

The House gave the warning in its resolutions after adopting a motion on the need for accreditation and re-accreditation of courses in the state-owned tertiary institutions.

The Chairman, Education Committee of the House, Mr Jimoh Akanni, who moved the motion, solicited the support of his colleagues to make sure it scaled through.

The house therefore directed all the state-owned tertiary institutions to stop admitting students for courses not accredited to guard against unemployment and other problems associated with fake certificates.

The Speaker, Dr Ali Ahmad said the state should set aside more funds for education, describing it as a critical area rather than earmarking huge sums to other sectors.

He urged the state government to release N450 million for all the state-owned tertiary institutions as requested from the funds approved in 2018 Appropriation Bill for accreditation.

The speaker commended the education committee for a job well done, saying that the house would not wait till there was a crisis in any institution before extending a helping hand.

He directed the House Committee on Education and Human Capital Development with the assistance of the deputy speaker to meet with the state government on issues bordering the legislature.
