Nigeria: Faculty Of Law Benue University To Be Shut Down

he Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) is set to withdraw accreditation of the law faculty of the Benue State University (BSU), Makurdi.

Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Msugh Kembe stated this at the weekend while fielding questions from newsmen in Makurdi.

He said the shut down of the faculty became necessary by the Council of Legal Education and NUC because the university has not met the professional requirement.

The requirement for a fully accreditated law faculty of any universitas in the country were a well furnished mute court, law building, law clinic and library as well as proper mix of professional staff which the BSU has not met according to him.
