The Vice Chancellor of Caleb University, Prof. Ayodeji Olukoju said the re-accreditation of the institution’s Accounting programme by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) has further validated the university’s claim of academic excellence.
He said the programme’s re-accreditation, which is domiciled in the Department of Accounting and Finance, Faculty of College of Social and Management Sciences, has gone a long way to boost the confidence stakeholders have in the institution.
“We are giving the parents the best quality and we will not stop at anything to make our students to compete favourably with their peers anywhere and to succeed in their academic endeavor,” the Vice-Chancellor said. He attributed the giant stride attained by the university in all spheres of its development to the support of the founder, Dr. Oladega Adebogun, the lecturers and students, saying without their dedication and commitment in all ramifications, “we would not have achieved this far.”
The ICAN Accreditation Certificate was presented to the Dean, College of Social and Management Sciences (COSOMAS), Prof. Nosa Owens-Ibie by the ICAN President, Mr. Chidi Onyeukwu Ajaegbu at the ICAN Office Annex, Ebute Metta, Lagos.
With the re-accreditation, which is for another five years, Owens-Ibie said accounting students will be exempted from writing some stages of ICAN examinations.
