Report reaching schoolwatch.com.ng via dailytrust has it that, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has awarded six Nigerian universities drawn from each geopolitical zone of the country for their high performance in the administration of their counseling centres.
Director Student Support Services of NUC, Hajiya Uwani Yahya, said on Tuesday that after an assessment of guidance and counseling units in all universities, the commission decided to reward the best to encourage others to improve.
The universities that were presented two computers each by the Minister of Education, Professor Ruqayyatu Ahmed Rufa’i, are University of Lagos which beat the University of Ibadan for Southwest; Bayero University Kano which beat Ahmadu Bello University for Northwest; University of Ilorin for North Central; Nnamdi Azikiwe University for Southeast; University of Maiduguri for Northeast; and University of Benin for South-south.
Hajiya Uwani said all the universities recognized were federal universities because they are more established and that most of the other universities were operating their guidance and counseling centres within the Faculty of Education which is an unacceptable practice.
