By Idris Katib 

Authorities of Crescent University,Abeokuta have debunked rumours making the rounds that the institution's Master's programmes are not approved by the National Universities Commission (NUC),the regulatory body in Nigeria.

In a release by the Public Relations Officer of the university,Idris Katib,the vice chancellor, Prof. Ibraheem Gbajabiamila confirmed that the National Universities Commission considered and approved the Master's programmes of Crescent University,Abeokuta since 1st July 2013 in a letter issued by the office of the Executive Secretary of the Commission with a reference number NUC/ES/312/VOL 1/135.

Prof. Gbajabiamila stressed that sequel to this approval,the university had commenced its Master's degree programmes since 2013/2014 academic sessions and has since produced two sets graduates who are doing well in employment.

He noted that a personality of His Excellency,Judge Bola Ajibola,the proprietor of the university would not bend the rules by allowing his university to run unapproved courses both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The vice chancellor recalled that one of the beneficiaries of Master's programme of the university,Adedeji Ajayi,who graduated from the Department of Mass Communication with a PhD grade is now working with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) as Senior Journalist in charge of planning.

Assuring members of the general public that the university would continue to turn out quality products,Prof. Gbajabiamila added that "several products of our university have also been appointed as managers in banking,insurance and other sectors of the Nigerian economy and even abroad".

He however urged parents and prospective candidates to crosscheck with the office of the executive secretary of the NUC on the "status of our Master's programmes".

Crescent University's first class is indeed world class.Parents who desire quality and can afford the fees of a private university will prefer an institution like Crescent because their products sell them to the world.While some private universities are advertising buildings,Crescent usually tells the parents and candidates successful stories of its alumni around the world.Congratulations to this university of the future

One will agree that Crescent is now coming up with its academic progress.As a beneficiary of the school's part time degree,I can beat my chest about the quality of the programs.No sale of handouts and the lecturers are super strict

NUC should have updated it's records before publishing the list of Universities given approval to run postgraduate programs. The omission of approved/accredited University like CRESCENT university is uncalled for. Qudos to Crescent management for promptly releasing this publication.

I bagged my BSc from Crescent University few years ago.The university doesn't compromise its standard.No settlement whatever

The PR strategy of Crescent is OK. The university often showcases its stars and even congratulate them in its advertisements.This is a selling point & will kill any negative stories against the university.I believe Crescent will continue in this direction.

Workers at NUC are a prototype of the ministry staff; some are lazy bones.To update simple record from 2012 became a problem.Shioooor

This university has tolerance for non Muslims.I did a GNS course philosophy of Islam.I was able to know that Islam has a lot of provisions and tolerance for other people.The lecturer was fantastic because his lectures were interactive
