3 min read

At least 35 indigenes of Katsina State are studying cyber security and space engineering at the Al-Hikmah University, Ilorin, Kwara State.

Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Noah Yusuf said that the Katsina State government is bankrolling the programmes for the undergraduates.

Yusuf urged other state governments to take a cue from the Katsina State government by sending their wards to the Ilorin-based citadel of higher learning.

He added that the university “council has approved the deployment of closed circuit television cameras on the school campuses for security purposes.”

Briefing reporters on the results of the institution’s 2022/2023 National Universities Commission accreditation, the Professor of Sociology said the “university is set to hold her first ever endowment fund. The launch of the fund will coincide with the school’s founder’s birthday”.

He put the total number of the institution’s accredited programme at 50.

He said: “Since we assumed office on 13th July 2020, the recent accreditation would be the third under our administration. The first was in November 2020 in which the university had overwhelming success with full accreditation status in 22 programmes.

“Again, in January 2021, the university slated 11 academic programmes for the exercise. Like the previous one, the university had an excellent performance with all eleven programmes attaining full accreditation status. “We are glad to unveil the results of the last NUC accreditation which was conducted between 13th November and 7th December 2022.

“All the programmes we presented to NUC attained full accreditation status. The courses are English, agriculture, human anatomy, computer science, information system, and education physics. Others are law, biology, and geology.”

He also said, “The current accreditation status of the university has provided an additional selling point for the institution as a foremost citadel for quality education with moral and spiritual excellence”.
