NBTE Accredits 12 New Programmes at Federal Poly Mubi

The National Board for Technical Education has accredited 12 new programmes for the Federal Polytechnic Mubi, Adamawa State.

The Rector of the polytechnic, Sadiq Yahya, said four Higher National Diploma and eight National Diploma courses in the school received the board’s nod.

He spoke in Kaduna on Monday while receiving the institution’s Governing Council members.

He stated that the school submitted 13 of its programmes to NBTE for accreditation but 12 sailed through the board’s quality assurance mechanism.

Yahya, who applauded the move, said steps were on to remedy the deficiency in the outstanding programme.

He also noted that the board had already given the polytechnic the approval to admit students to the programmes in the 2013/2014 academic session.

Expressing concern over the lingering industrial action by two of the three unions in the polytechnic sector, the rector appealed to the unions to consider the plight of students and return to classes.

Yahya, who noted that the Federal Government had taken steps to address the demands of the unions, urged them to ensure the amicable resolution of all the issues.

The Governing Council’s Chairman and former Rector of the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi, Sa’idu Ibrahim-Jahun, commended the rector for achieving the accreditation success under his leadership.
