MOUAU Stakeholders React to JAMB Board De-listing of MOUAU Science Courses
There is a new wave of reactions from stakeholders as JAMB Board has decided to de-list all of Michael Okapra University Courses.
Stakeholders from Ikwuano/Umuahia, have moved forward to appeal against the planned de-listing of the Faculty of Management Science from the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike (MOUAU).
It could be recalled that a presidential directive ordered specialised universities like MOUAU to stop further teaching of non-agricultural programmes.
Speaking on behalf of others at Ikwuano, Onuigbo, after a stakeholders’ meeting, a lawmaker representing Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency at the National Assembly Sam Onuigbo, said the directive has made the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to delist without delay all management courses from the list of courses being offered by the university.
Onuigbo, who doubles as Chairman of House Committee on Climate Change, appealed to the leadership of the National Assembly to mandate the Committees onTertiary Education and Services and Legislative Compliance to look into the matter.
He said: “There is a need for all of us to come together and discuss the future of our children and the matter has to do with Presidential fiat based on the request of Ministry of Agriculture to remove courses in the management college in the Universities of Agriculture in the country.
“During the last admissions exercise, the Federal University of Agriculture in Abia, 19,000 qualified students applied for admission, the university was able to admit just 5,590, while over 13,000 candidates were denied admission.
“This policy is a threat to the society. The law that established the University of Agriculture makes it very clear that one of the objectives of university is teaching agriculture extension and allied disciplines. that law is still in force, the law has not changed and it has not been amended”.
Onuigbo praised the Federal Government’s resolve to diversify the economy through agriculture and the very important role the universities of agriculture, especially MOUAU has played in that direction.
