The registrar made the appeal in a paper he presented at the Sixth Annual International Conference of West Africa Universities at the Universite Cheikh Anta Diop, Dakar.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede
“Our universities must be made not to limit their visions to the production of graduates capable of meeting only the needs of their various nations (markets.)

”The challenges of trans-border research have been identified to include the differences in the education systems in the sub-region, weak internal assessment mechanism and superficial external quality assurance system.

“Proliferation of private and public higher education institutions as a result of liberalisation of education is also part of the challenges,” Oloyede said, according to a statement signed by JAMB’s Spokesman, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in Lagos, yesterday

The conference had the theme: “Trans-border Education and Research; Quality Assurance Implications for African Universities.”

It was aimed at bringing together academics in West Africa to jointly come up with research proposals and execute same together to find solutions to challenges facing the sub-region.

Oloyede also called on universities in the sub-region to set aside a certain percentage of their admission space for international students.

“This way, universities in the sub-region can compete with their counterparts globally,” he said.

According to him, universities must live up to their primary mandate of teaching, research and community development to be able to understand problems of the sub-region and proffer solutions.
