National Universities Commission

Given the strategic role of the National Universities Commission (NUC) in the accreditation and monitoring of academic programmes,

the joint team of the EXCOs and BoT of ADAN met physically with the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer of the Commission, Professor Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, in his Office in Abuja on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 for about one hour. During the visit, the President who introduced the contingent expressly informed the Executive Secretary of the aim, vision and mission of ADAN and its strategic role in ensuring that professionalism of agriculture education is upheld in the various Faculties of Agriculture in Nigerian Universities.

The President was also quick to state that this strategic role which aimed at building the capacities of our students, mostly young people, for agripreneurship and job creation, required its synergy with all stakeholders of which the Commission is part. He chronicled some fruitful partnerships and collaboration that ADAN has fostered over the years and the current innovative partnership toward re-designing agriculture curriculum to be demand-driving, stressing that the industries and other end-users are the one that determines the fate of the graduates as the labour market has continued to grow with what the public classified as unemployable graduates.

To forestall this emerging negative scenario, ADAN, according to the President, has taken stocks of its critical stakeholders and resolved to interface with them towards finding ways to improving the synergistic relationships. The President concluded by stressing the need for closer partnerships, collaboration and linkages with NUC for improved service delivery. ADAN’s recommendation to NUC’s Executive Secretary was to join hands with the Association in promoting end-user-based agriculture curriculum re-designing to make the programme more attractive and impactful. In his response, the ES who was joined by some of his Management Staff, could not hide his joy and excitement over the visit, promised to work more closely with ADAN and expressed hope for fruitful partnership.
