  • FOREWORD
    I feel highly delighted to write the foreword to the maiden issue of the Department of Educational Foundations’ Handbook. The essence of the Handbook is primarily to familiarize our staff and students with the Departmental Programmes, facilities and general practice in ameliorating students’ problems during registration and throughout their studies in the Department in particular and the University in general.
    The Departmental Handbook provides a short history of the Department which was created along with other Departments when the University was established in year 2011. The creation of the Department cannot be unconnected with the fact that education is one of the fundamental basis on which the prosperity and future of a nation depends. Indeed, without education, no nation would be able to achieve all-round progress nor would its dignity and bright future be realised.
    At present, the Department runs two unique programmes (B.A. (Ed) English Language and B.Sc. (Ed) Human Kinetics and Health Education) which attract many scholars from other Universities on visiting and sabbatical. Indeed, the Department benefits tremendously from their wealth of experience in boosting the Departmental programmes in particular and the University in general.
    It is my honour and privilege to present the Departmental Handbook to both the staff and students for guidance.
    God bless you all! Amen.
