The Academic Staff Union of Universities has rejected the Core Curriculum Minimum Academic Standards prepared by the National Universities Commission.

A statement signed by the national president of ASUU, Emmanuel Osodeke, explained that it was inexplicable that NUC pre-packaged 70 per cent CCMAS contents while university Senates, who are statutorily responsible for academic programme development, were left to work on only 30 per cent.

He stressed that there were growing concerns about the numerous shortcomings and gross inadequacies of the CCMAS documents.

The union said it was nightmarish, a threat to quality university education, and an erosion of powers of the university Senate in Nigerian universities.
