DISCOVER THE NUC APPROVED PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES IN NIGERIA

There are several universities in Nigeria claiming to be accredited by the National Universities Council (NUC) when in fact, they are not. Unfortunately, many people don’t get to know this until after they have invested their resources trying to study in such intuitions.  Accreditation is done by the NUC as they are the only organization in Nigeria with this responsibility. They evaluate Nigerian universities to ensure that their documents meet the requirements of the minimum academic standard (MAS) which are a benchmark for evaluating quality education in Nigeria.

Accreditation of academic programs aims to ensure that the requirements of MAS are attained, maintained, and enhanced. The National Universities Commission (NUC), serves as the regulatory body for universities in Nigeria and is also in charge of ensuring all private universities in Nigeria meet the benchmark of minimum academic standard requirements. Any private university in the country that is not accredited is being run illegally and if found out, would be shut down.

Southwestern University is a private institute established with the vision of being pioneers in mentoring, modelling and excellence. The school emphasizes the use of knowledge to benefit its students who in turn are expected to impact society positively. Southwestern University is one of the top universities officially accredited and recognized by the national universities commission, Nigeria.

 DISCOVER THE NUC APPROVED PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES IN NIGERIA

The number of Nigerian youth seeking admission to higher institutions is clearly a lot more than the publicly owned tertiary institutions in the country can handle. As a result of this, private universities in Nigeria over the years have grown to be immensely important when compared to Federal and State schools in the country. Several private universities have sprouted up across the country while many are still under construction. However, as important as they are to the country’s development, not all private universities in Nigeria possess NUC accreditation/license to operate.

Following the establishment of the first private university in Nigeria, the National Universities Commission has been issuing licenses to individuals, corporate bodies, and religious bodies to establish private universities in the country.

Many people often overlook the necessity to verify an institution’s accreditation status, instead, their initial queries revolve around such issues as to whether the institution is the best private university in Nigeria for law or the best private medical university in Nigeria or how much the university demands for tuition? However, none of these matters if the university has not been accredited by the appropriate body. It is very important to make sure a private university is NUC accredited before enrolling yourself, child, or ward into it.

Due to the increase of fake private universities in Nigeria, the National Universities Commission (NUC) decided to release the full list of approved private degree-awarding institutions in Nigeria.

Here are universities approved by the NUC

Exploring the Middle East (The cradle of civilization)

Exploring the Middle East (The cradle of civilization)

The Middle East is home to the finest ancient architecture and civilization known to man.

In the Middle East, history is not something you write about in books. Here, it is a story written on the stones that litter the region, from the flagstone of old Roman road to the building blocks of Ancient Egypt, and the temples from Petra to Persepolis. This is where human kind first built cities and learned to write, and it was from here that Judaism, Christianity and Islam all arose.

Here the past meets the present. Aside from ranking among the oldest cities on earth, the ancient-modern metropolises are places to look at with the eyes of an adventurer.

Beyond the city limits, the Middle East is a land of mighty rivers (Nile, which is the longest river out of Africa), even mightier deserts (the Sahara and peerless wadi rum) and green landscapes of exceptional beauty. Exploring these wilderness areas,; from the snow caped summits in turkey to the kaleidoscopic waters of the Red sea, lies the heart of the regions appeal.

First stop will be; PETRA, JORDAN.

Originally known to its inhabitants in as Raqmu or Raqēmō  is a historic and archaeological city in southern Jordan. Petra lies around Jabal Al-Madbah in a basin surrounded by mountains which form the eastern flank of the Arabah valley that runs from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. The area around Petra has been inhabited from as early as 7000 BC, and the Nabataeans might have settled in what would become the capital city of their kingdom, as early as the 4th century BC. However, archaeological work has only discovered evidence of Nabataean presence dating back to the second century BC, by which time Petra had become their capital. The Nabataeans were nomadic Arabs who invested in Petra’s proximity to the trade routes by establishing it as a major regional trading hub.

Petra is actually a fairly easy place to visit and not too expensive. There’s accommodation which, ranges from tented camps to five star resorts, there is a good public transport. It is safe and people are incredibly welcoming.

The ancient Nabataean city of Petra is one of Middle East most cherished attractions. It’s a place like no other.

Some of its glorious sites are;

THE SIQ;

Which happens to be a gorge, entering through the impossibly narrow canyon gives you the feeling that you are on a treasure hunt, and when the sun sets over the honey combed landscape of the tombs, carved facades and pillars all hewn from the rose-red sandstone cliff.

THE TOMB OF NABATAEAN KING ARETAS III.

The treasury is the highlight of Petra but it’s only the really the beginning of your visit.  Also waiting to wow you mind is.

THE COLONNADED STREETS;

Which happens to be the remains, of the Romans invasion. The Romans took control over Petra in 106 AD. Romans that took the archtectuure of Greeks and perfected it. Those Romans where masters at building , and their road still stands today, along with several columns lining the side of the road. Next stop would be the great temple.

THIS NABATAEAN TEMPLE;

These was built in 100 BC and is the largest freestanding building in Petra. Our next stop will be The Monastery (Al-deir). The hike to the monastery is over 900 steps and for a solid 20 minutes or more. Along the way you pass numerous stalls, worked by women, selling souvenir and jewelers. But if you are not a fan of hiking donkeys are available for a token.

Petra also brings to you one of the holiest places in the world,

THE TOMB OF AARON

Aaron, Moses ‘brother. To get there can be equated to the stress of pilgrimage. The highest point in the area gives hikers a view of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Before you bid Farwell to Petra, make sure you see Petra by night. It occurs three nights a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 20:30) the Siq which happens to be a gorge are lit with 1500 candles. This different view of Petra and it’s described as magical.

The best time to visit Petra is March to May and September to November. As temperature aren’t so high and the crowds are smaller. The winter can be bitterly cold night and chilly during the day. During summer the months can be unbearably hot, because it’s a desert nation.

Do not forget to bring back the most prized treasure of Jordan the Dead Sea salt. Petra should be on your bucket list.

 

 

 

 

And the desert rose takes us toEGYPT;

THE THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF MARKETS (IN NIGERIA).

Published

THE THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF MARKETS (IN NIGERIA).

Markets in the usual wavelengths of things is ordinarily where intending prospective buyers of any ware(s) and or product(s) haggle with the seller(s) of such selfsame wares and products until a mutual business consensus (agreement) is reached between the referent duo as mentioned and relayed above.

Moreover, the above submission about the topic under the context holds sway and true in the peripheral lengths and breadths of things.

However and in addition to the earlier submission, a further study saddled with a deep reflection about market lately reveals that markets especially in the Nigerian economic and business clime serves as a potent platform for a sublime therapeutic essence and efficacy specifically for women largely since they throng the market scenes with their wares and on a small(er) scale men since they as well actively participate in the bipolar to and fro sales and buy(ing) of products and or wares.

Furthermore, Nigerian women often go to the market scenario not necessarily because they have a(ny) sizable quantity of wares and or products to buy and or sellout. They largely and merely go out to the market their distended pent up emotions that they have harboured and are still harbouring from their familial and or spousal bust-ups since men – their husbands in a twist of natural proclivity are not and won’t be giving them – women and or wife/wives enough listening ear to accommodate all the whole gamut of their unresolved (pent-up) emotions.

The women and or wives would readily and consequently use the market to release their broken-hearted and or maligned posture to other women and or wives they see in the market by embracing, hugging and seeing themselves eyeball-to-eyeball for long which subtly give and afford them the much-expected love and caressing and a warm communication reintegration which they have for long missed and are still missing husbands who have either eloped with another woman elsewhere or deceased or divorced and or separated.

By so doing, the typical lifespan and or longevity of married women tend to prolong beyond the ordinary.

Thus far, a keen and a careful reading and perusal of the above excerpt clearly and concisely depicts and portrays the market as a therapeutic gym(nasium) especially and specifically for married women in Nigeria but not merely a scene where buyers and sellers meet to haggle out prices of wares and or products.

Finally, I do hope that the excerpt tallies with the configured topic on the headline.

ThankYou for reading through!

My name is MOSES ODIBE OGBAJI, writing from Ichakobe-Ibilla, Benue State, Nigeria.

WE’LL PUSH, PUSH UNTIL YOU WIN, PRESIDENT BUHARI ASSURES OKONJO-IWEALA
President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Abuja assured Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance and Economy, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, that the country will explore every opportunity and deploy its entire energy to ensure that she becomes the Director-General of World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Dr Okonjo-Iweala is one of two candidates contesting for the top position of the multilateral institution.
President Buhari, who received the former Managing Director (Operations) of the World Bank at the Presidential Villa, said she deserved more support to get the top job because of her profile and diligence in serving the country, and the world.
“I assure you that we will do all that we can to ensure that you emerge as the Director-General of WTO, not only because you are a Nigerian, but because you are a hardworking Nigerian. You deserve this,’’ he added.
WE’LL PUSH, PUSH UNTIL YOU WIN, PRESIDENT BUHARI ASSURES OKONJO-IWEALA
The President assured Dr Okonjo-Iweala that he will make more phone calls, and send letters to some world leaders for more support.
“I did the same for Dr Akinwunmi Adesina for President of the African Development Bank. Both of you served the country under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). You are both highly qualified. We will continue to support you. I will immediately make those calls,’’ the President told Dr Okonjo-Iweala.
In her remarks, Dr Okonjo-Iweala, a renowned development economist, thanked the President and his ministers, particularly the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, and Ministers of Industry, Trade and Investment for supporting her staunchly.
“I feel very proud of Nigeria. I am getting so much support from you, Mr President, Chief of Staff, Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Ministers of Industry, Trade and Investments. The ministers have been working around the clock to ensure that I succeed,’’ she said.
The former Minister of Finance also appreciated ECOWAS leaders for their endorsement, mentioning in particular the outstanding contributions of President Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger Republic and immediate past Chairman of ECOWAS as well as President Alhassan Quattara of Cote d’Ivoire.
She asked the President to “make one final push within the week to beat the Koreans and bring this to Nigeria by sending a few letters and placing telephone calls to some world leaders, and also thank others for their support.’’
“Mr President, put a smile on my face,’’ she said, “I am very proud of the country.’’
