The Akwa Ibom State College of Education, Afaha Nsit, has matriculated 1,329 students for the 2020/2021 academic year.
The 30th NCE and 3rd batch degree matriculation ceremony was held on Friday 8 October 2021 at the College Sports ground.
The matriculating students were spread across the Institution as follows:
School of Languages 156
School of Vocational & Technical Education 135
School of Science 244
School of Arts and Social Science 220
School of Primary Education 129

College Provost, Dr Daniel Udo in his address thanked State Governor Udom Emmanuel for his visionary leadership which according to him has not only sustained the College but has also facilitated enormous infrastructural and academic growth in the degree-awarding institution.
“Your Excellency Sir, we will remain ever grateful to you for the economic ambience that you created during that last Accreditation and Resource visit by the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) and the National Universities Commission (NUC); your support, which granted some academic programmes of the College full accreditation, remain indelible in the history of this institution,” he said. “Some of our programmes however earned partial accreditation as a result of that exercise, we are hopeful that the flow from your ever-supportive fountain and care will equally see us through the approaching round of institution and programmes accreditation.”
Dr Udo recalled that the then Akwa Ibom State Edict No 2 of 1991 gave birth to the College of Education.
He saluted the vision of the then military governor of the State, Late Otuekong Idongesit Nkanga, “whose growth-driven policy established this citadel of learning”.

To the matriculating students, the provost said the institution expects zero tolerance to all forms of indiscipline and dishonesty.
“Students are expected to abide by the rules and regulations prevalent in this academic community and as entrenched in the matriculation oath, which you must sign to be fully integrated as a student,” he said. “The College operates a well organised administrative system and issues are expected to be channelled through due process before reaching the echelon.”
Dr Udo appreciated the leaders and youths of the host community, for their “peaceful and cordial relationship”.
“We will continue to dialogue in warm atmosphere of understanding as we seek solutions to your primary issues of concern brought to our knowledge,” she assured. “We therefore implore you as landlords to work in close synergy with the authorities of the college and government to permanently stamp out cultism and other social vices threatening our developmental efforts as a community.”
