The Vice Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Prof Michael Adikwu had on Monday stated that, Uni Abuja will soon start running courses in mass communication, nursing, biochemistry, geology and others.
The Prof, who made this known during a briefing in Abuja, to celebrate three years in office as vice-chancellor, noted that the university had secured full accreditation for most of the courses that were not fully accredited in the past.
“We are thinking of courses not hitherto running in the university how we can begin to offer them – courses like nursing, mass communication, biochemistry, geology and host of others. We are looking at expanding into those areas. If we have more courses, more students can be taken. All the 12 courses have full accreditation,” he said.
However, he added that the allegation against the university paying half salaries to the university workers was not true.
“It is not true that we were paying half salaries. We have never paid less than 85 per cent or 90. The bursar can confirm this that we have never paid less than 85 per cent. It was not only University of Abuja, but all the federal institutions. Some paid 75, some paid 80. Our own was very good,” he stated.
