Explaining why mentors were appointed for the new universities, Anwuka said mentoring was part of the requirement as contained in the Education Act Cap E3 Law of FederalRepublic of Education 2004 implemented by the NUC and the Federal Ministry of Education.“It is the part of the requirements. Anolder university within the university zone where each of the new universities has been approved is given the mandate to oversee and mentor the new universities in termsof academic and administrative culture for three years within which period they must have learnt the art of university governance and academic details.”The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, throwing more light on the issue of mentoring,said, “the law is very specific on exactly what is required. I think the first is that each of the mentoring universities would, among other issues, ensure that the correct appointment of the governing council is made; that they recruit appropriate principal officers both academic and administrative; that there would be availability of human and material resources for the commencement of any academic performance.“They also have the responsibility to ensure implementation of carrying capacity. They must also assist in staff development.

They must also modulate students’ examination; must guarantee quality assurances of the university.

They also have responsibility to moderate admission and also moderate external examination even the older universities were also mentored by universities abroad.“But we believe that by today, we have reached the situation whereby our own universities are capable of mentoring the universities,”

Mohammed said.
