Dedicated to the primary goal of raising God-fearing leaders and helping define their future, the university is doing everything within its powers to safeguard its high academic standards, shutout ungodliness, and discourage mediocrity in its system.

Speaking recently about the state of the Nigeria educational system and delinquency amongst students, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Joshua Olalekan Ogunwole said “Globally, governments are taking more responsibility towards ensuring that quality education is available to everyone. As a matter of fact, the fourth of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations (UN) in 2015 is to provide Quality Education for all by the year 2030. While commitments like this from the UN provide hope that someday we will have a society free of disadvantaged kids who cannot afford to go to school, it also raises a concern for nations like ours where good education is a scarce commodity”. He further added “while it appears that the standard of education is stagnating and in most parts of our country deteriorating, it is the spread of social vices that is threatening our co-existence and the future of our nation like never before. Hence we must come together to put an end to it.”

Surprisingly, recently on campus, during what should have been a routine test and general evaluation of our students and their wellbeing, we were saddened at a tip-off that a number of them had begun to deviate from the values under which we have based all our teachings, as few of them tested positive to substance abuse.

“As an institution that is committed to teaching Excellence and Godliness, we considered this development most unacceptable and immediately engaged with parents of the affected students to come pick up their children who had been suspended. Our students are conversant with the rules and regulations governing activities on campus, and the corresponding penalties for defaulters hence, no one was surprised at the suspension.

Unfortunately, a fire outbreak was reported on campus hours after the suspension and we are aware that conspiracy enthusiasts have already begun spreading rumours of students’ rampage due to this incident. Whilst a full-fledged investigation is underway, preliminary reports indicate that the incident was caused by a mattress that was set on fire, however, the situation was brought under control, quickly” the Registrar, Dr. Kayode A. Ogunleye said.
