The Vice Chancellor of Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) Professor Aloysius-Michaels Okolie, on March 13, lamented the scarcity of medical personnel across health facilities in Nigeria.

Okolie stated that to forestall such ugly trends in the nursing profession, ESUT has commenced collaborating with the Enugu State Government to expand the admission quota for the Nursing Sciences Department in the university.

He made the revelation when the Town Planners Registration Council of Nigeria, TOPREC, and Architects Registration Council of Nigeria, ARCON, visited for accreditation of the Urban and Regional Planning, and Architecture Departments of ESUT.

While also lamenting the harsh economic situations in Nigeria, specifically as they affect the standard of living of the masses, he urged other vice chancellors to wisely utilise funds coming into their universities for the development of their institutions.

The chairmen of TOPREC and ARCON accreditation teams, Prof. Bolanle Wahab and Prof. C . B Chukwudi, respectively, while speaking to the management of ESUT, affirmed that they were in ESUT to examine the programs and check if they were in line with the quality of the professional bodies.

They encouraged the departments involved to put all the cards on the table to guarantee excellent exercises.
