He said that the university had been fulfilling its mandate, especially in the area of ​​continued academic activities and community service, despite security challenges in the region.

“We have been able to record some successes even in difficult areas. There was no day that we closed the university even at the height of the insurgency.

“In fact, there is evidence to suggest that even NUC agrees that we are one of the best universities in the country.

“NUC has clearly indicated that our own affiliation with other colleges of education has been very well mentored by us,” he said.

He noted that at that time the insurgency was very high, NUC could not put together a single team to go to Maiduguri for the purpose of accreditation.

“So we were granted a waiver to continue our teaching, research, and community service mandate.

“Then a few years later, when things started to settle down, now we had the situation where NUC started sending teams to come and accredit our programs.

“We went through accreditation and got full accreditation for some of our programs and some of them we got provisional accreditation, but we continued to work hard and got accreditation,” he said.

Civil and Water Resources Engineering

He further said that currently, all university programs have full accreditation except “Civil and Water Resources Engineering”.

“But we have put enough resources; we have injected about N200 million through the appropriation budget, even the Borno government has also injected some facilities.”

Shugaba also said that in recent years the university had started to register research successes and said that it registered about five patents and made a breakthrough in registering them.

“Now we are seeing the commercialization of them.

School of Medical Sciences

“Our own School of Medical Sciences has also been previously designated since 1986 as a center of excellence, as has the law school,” he explained.
