Minister For Education Meet With VC And Other Staffs Of Uniabuja Over Students Protest

The Federal Government may rescind its decision on the suspension of four key programmes at the University of Abuja (UniAbuja), as some of the aggrieved students day yesterday took their protest to the Federal Ministry of Education. The protesters had on Wednesday barricaded the Airport/Giri Expressway, leading to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to register their displeasure over government’s decision. But the situation was brought under control by security personnel. Over 1,000 students protested the suspension of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Engineering and Agricultural
Science programmes in the institution, a situation that has degenerated into a disruption of academic activities in the institution. It is believed that government is
working on the advice of the Needs Assessment Committee it constituted to assess the priorities and needs of public-based universities in the country. The committee is headed by Mahmood Yakubu, Executive Secretary of the
Tertiary Education Trust Fund
(TETfund). The committee recently visited the institution were it found out that most of the affected departments lacked essential facilities. There was no clinical laboratory for Medicine, while Vet Medicine and Agricultural Sciences lacked an ideal farm settlement for practical. Minister of Education Ruqayyatu Rufa’I, engaged the Vice Chancellor, Sunday Adelabu, other senior officials of the university and students representatives in a truce meeting that lasted for several hours at the ministry. It was inconclusive and has been rescheduled for next Thursday.
