Also gets Nursing and Midwifery Council Full Accreditation.
The National Universities Commission (NUC), after a Resource Verification Exercise, has approved the establishment of the College of Law to commence an L.L B Law degree programme at McPherson University, Seriki Sotayo, Ogun State.
This news was contained in a letter to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Francis Igbasan, and signed by the Deputy Executive Secretary (Academics), Dr. N. B Saliu, on behalf of the Executive Secretary of the Commission.
The Commission also gave her blessings for the commencement of B.Sc. Public Health programme, to the institution. The letter, dated 8th June 2023, with the title, “Resource Assessment Visit to Proposed Academic Programmes” read in part “I am directed to inform the Vice-Chancellor that the Executive Secretary has considered and approved the establishment of the full-time mode of the following undergraduate programmes, to be run in the Main Campus of the University, with effect from the 2023/2024 academic session: L.L. B Law and B.Sc. Public Health.”
Highly delighted, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Igbasan received the news with words of appreciation to the Commission, “our request for the Resource Verification Exercise to the NUC was not misplaced. We were adequately prepared, as the human and infrastructural requirements have been on the ground ahead of their visits” he said.
In a related development, McPherson University also got a Full Accreditation for its Bachelor’s degree in Nursing Science (B.NSc) programme from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN). It will be recalled that earlier in the year, the National Universities Commission (NUC), granted Full Accreditation to the Nursing programme, along with three other academic programmes, including B.A. Religion & Peace Studies, B.Sc. International Relations and B.A. English.
The recent Full Accreditation by the apex professional body for Nursing & Midwifery practice implies that graduates of the Institution’s Nursing programme would be armed with both academic degrees and professional certifications from the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Vice Chancellor, Prof Francis Igbasan states further, “McPherson University has so far got the needed Accreditation for all academic programmes we run and to the glory of God, we shall commence the Law and Public Health programmes in the next academic session. The Nursing and Midwifery Council Accreditation is also an icing on the cake and the news will serve as an impetus for us to stay focused, not resting on our oars.”
