Accreditation: Help save CAILS, Provost cries out to Gov Ahmed


Provost of the College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies (CAILS), Ilorin, Dr Musa Abdullahi has appealed to the Kwara State Government to ensure the release of the required funds for accreditation of courses available at the institution.

Abdullahi who stated this recently at the annual Ramadan lecture hosted by the college added that though the request for funds for the accreditation of courses had been approved about eight months ago, the state government is however yet to support the approval with cash backing.

“The delay in the accreditation of courses has affected the interests of the students negatively, those who have graduated could not collect their certificates while those still in school will definitely face similar problem. The delay has also affected our degree and diploma programmes, a situation which has stopped us from admitting new students. This has reduced the number of students in the college and if urgent steps are not taken, it may lead to the closure of the school that has been in existence for 27years but we pray such will not happen,” the provost said.

The Committee of Unions of Tertiary Institutions (CUTI), of the college had last month given the authority 21-day ultimatum on the issue of accreditation of courses, though it was followed by another 14 days ultimatum, there was said to be no response from the state government which led to the current seven days ultimatum for the government to address the matter.

Speaking on the topic; Curbing the Destructive Effects of Disunity Among Scholars: The Islamic Perspective, the Chief Imam of Afonja Central Mosque, Osun State who was the Guest Speaker, Alhaji Abdulwahab said there is the need for unity and cooperation among scholars of Islam throughout the world.
