1 min read

The National Universities Commission (NUC), has called on African universities to recognise the value of forging partnerships with institutions worldwide to address constraints and provide students with skills needed for employment.

Acting Executive Secretary, NUC, Chris Maiyaki, gave the charge on Friday, in Abuja at the 3rd Annual Conference of the Forum for Innovation in African Universities, FIAU, with the theme: ‘Strengthening Africa’s Higher Education in a post-COVID-19 world

Maiyaki said by embracing international collaborations, the universities can tap into a wealth of expertise, resources, and opportunities for their students and faculties.

While noting that there was a challenge of resource constraint faced by universities across Africa, he said to address the situation, the institutions require strategic partnerships.

He said: “Collaboration with governments, private sector entities, philanthropic organizations, and international development agencies is crucial in pooling resources, sharing expertise, and creating sustainable funding models.”
