Credible information available to schoolwatch.com.ng confirmed that the Nasarawa State House of Assembly has summoned the Vice Chancellor of the state University in Keffi to appear before the House of Assembly to explain why the 2015/2016 admissions by the institution did not favour indigenes of the state.
The House passed the resolution on Tuesday after deliberating extensively on a motion moved by Mr Daniel Oga-Ogazi (APC-Kokona East) under Matters of Public Interest in Lafia.
He said that the 2015/2016 academic session admission list of the university did not favour the indigenes of the state and called on the Assembly to intervene in order to redress the anomaly and get qualified indigenes admission in to the institution.
“My colleagues, I am calling on you to support my motion to enable the Vice Chancellor of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, to appear before the House to explain his role on the 2015/2016 admission list of the university which has not favoured indigenes of the state.
“The Act establishing the university said that 80 per cent of every admission of the institution should be indigenes while 20 per cent should be non-indigenes.
“But in this year’s admission, it is unfortunate that our children are crying out there for not getting admission in to the university,’’ he said.
He said that the appearance of the vice chancellor would help in answering questions that affect the chances of the state indigenes from getting admission in to the university.
Mr Kassim Mohammed (APC-Akwanga South) seconded the motion requesting the vice chancellor to appear before House.
He said that the appearance of the vice chancellor would help in boosting the chances of the state indigenes to get admission in to the university as well as improve on the standard of education in the state.
The Speaker of the House, Alhaji Ibrahim Balarabe, directed the Clerk of the House to communicate the resolution to the vice chancellor to appear House of Assembly to answer questions over the admissions saga. (NAN)
