Speaking on the outcome of the accreditation exercise, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Anthony Akinlo, thanked the Almighty God for His unflinching support and the university’s proprietors for their investment in infrastructure and procurement of equipment needed for the exercise to be successful.
He noted that success would have been difficult to achieve without such massive support from the proprietors and the staff. He reiterated the need for the university’s stakeholders to know that the university, unlike any other, is a project in the hand of God and that such massive financial spending on the procurement of equipment, the elevation of physical infrastructure, and the recruitment of staff could only have taken place through God’s support.
