He said the IEA delegation was in Nigeria to observe COREN typical engineering programme accreditation procedure.

He said, “We strongly believe that at the end of the visitations, we would have demonstrated the strength of our engineering education and proven our capacity and suitability for the attainment of the provisional signatory status to the Washington Accord. COREN through this will be able to forge intra and inter-regional cooperation for Engineering Accreditation and mobility of certified engineering personnel within Africa and between Africa and the world.”
