Fear grips DELSU as NUC withdraws accreditation of Faculty of Law

Apprehension has gripped students of Delta State University, Oleh campus, following the withdrawal of the accreditation of the institution’s Faculty of Law. Their fear is rooted in the fact that the Faculty of Engineering of the institution also lost its accreditation four years ago. A lot of people now worry that the campus will soon be shut down.

President of the Law Students Association of Nigeria, LAWSAN, at the campus, Mr. Desmond Orisewezie has appealed to the government to work towards bringing back accreditation for those two faculties. “Engineering has lost its accreditation, and now Law Faculty. If the issue is left like that, it means that the campus will be closed which will not be fair, because psychologically, it is going to have effect on the students.”

A student of the campus, Mr. Oghenemine Djebah expressed his worry and urges the Delta state government to look into it. Djebah said that the conditions given by the accreditation team of NUC which he said include the provision of computers for the faculty’s e-library, upgrading of books, provision of air conditioners for the library, the completion and furnishing of the lecture and the moot court, could be achieved with proper commitment from the government and the cooperation of the school authority.
