Private varsities will always churn out many first class graduates because … — VC

The Vice-Chancellor of Caleb University, Imota near Lagos, Prof. Ayandiji Aina, has given reasons why private universities will continue to produce many First class graduate, saying that the schools do not compromise quality and adhere to their carrying capacity with regards to admission.

Aina made the revelation in a media chat while reacting to a National University Commission (NUC) 2017 reports which indicated that Nigeria private universities produced more first class graduates than the public universities.

The report drew attention of critics from various quarters, especially scholars, on the possibilities of the private universities lowering or compromising on standards to increase enrolment.

The VC said that first class students produced by private universities merited their degrees and had proved it again in other areas.

“People say we are producing many first class graduates in the private university and I ask them if they have assessed the students to know if they are lower in quality.

“There is no way a student will make first class and I have to regulate him or her down to second class because I want to graduate less number of first class.

 

 

“There are cases of second class upper students of private universities making first class in the law school and that is an endorsement for us.

[penci_blockquote style=”style-1″ align=”none” author=”Prof. Ayandiji Aina”]Recently, one of our second class upper graduates from Caleb University, Seyi Arole, was the best graduating student in Architecture, in one of the universities in Canada[/penci_blockquote],

According to him, the Nigerian Government sponsors 200 first class graduates nationwide yearly for their PhD’s and for the first three editions, a particular private university has been producing about 10 per cent of the beneficiaries.

The Vice-Chancellor made a comparison between attitude of lecturers in private and public universities, saying some public universities lecturers do not attend lectures until about three weeks to the examination before compelling students to go through marathon lectures.

“Many of us who graduated from the public universities can testify to this,” he said.

The VC said it was also not unusual to hear a lecturer in the public university say it was impossible for a student to score 70 per cent in their course.

According to him, a lecturer in the private university must complete his or her 15 weeks in class and cannot compromise on this because attendance is strictly monitored.

He noted that most private universities also connect their classrooms and other resources for international training to upgrade standard, adding that this was giving them an edge over their public counterparts.

Aina said most private universities now organise an interface between their students and industries and that they are also recruiting the best hands in the public institutions and industries.

“There is no way an institution would do all this and not produce the best, so I implore the public institutions to follow suit.

“There is no need to suppress the opportunity of students but rather allow their intellect and talent grow for posterity sake,” he said.
