|Winners Chapel To Lay Foundation Of 3rd University In January At Calabar by maxproxl: 10:43pm On Oct 22, 2012|
Culled from "the national pilot"
The Chancellor of Covenant University (CU), Ota, Ogun State and the Bishop of Living Faith Worldwide, Dr. David Oyedepo, has said that the foundation for the third of the planned seven universities of the church will be laid in January, next year.
Bishop Oyedepo spoke yesterday during a media briefing to mark the 10th anniversary of Covenant University.
He said his intervention in education sector was to prove that sanity could still return to the much troubled sector in the country.
He said the plan to establish four universities in Nigeria and three others to be spread in West, Central and East African nations was part of the church’s resolve to reclaim the lost glories in the continent.
The cleric said the third ivory tower, which will be named Crown University, would be sited in Calabar, Cross Rivers State. The university will primarily focus on Maritime studies.
Bishop Oyedepo blamed the rot in the nation’s education system on what he described as ill-advised decision of the government to take over schools from the missionaries. He said the foundation of education in the country cannot be discussed without the influence of the missionaries, who he said established the first school in Badagry in 1843.
