Varsity Waives Tuition For Students Of Religious Studies by JosEast(m): 8:39am On Nov 16, 2018
The McPherson University (McU) said it is giving tuition free scholarships to undergraduates enrolled in its religious studies programme.

At the pre-convocation press briefing at its campus in Seriki Sotayo, Ogun State, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Adeniyi Agunbiade said despite funding issues, the university has been giving scholarships and defraying students’ tuitions in other programmes.

Agunbiade said the university now in its sixth year and preparing for its third convocation wad keying into corporate social responsibility around its host communities.

“All of our students irrespective of their faiths or backgrounds are enjoying subsidy as much as half of what they are meant to pay. The Foursquare Gospel Church is paying that.

“Then we have scholarships for some of the academically sound students and for those that came through the church, they also enjoy N100,000 reduction in their tuitions. We also ensure that it is tuition free for all those who are into the religion studies,” the Vice Chancellor said.

Prof. Agunbiade added that the impacts of such scholarships are becoming manifest as more Secondary school leavers with Right qualifications are picking up the varsity’s admission forms while it’s graduands are consistently recording excellence in professional examinations and are becoming sought-after in labour market.

Useless offer.
Why grant tuition waiver for only students of Religious Studies?
Nigeria is in it's mess because of it's abundance of extremely religious folks and not an absence of them.

While I commend the university for the act, I advice that this waiver be extended to meaningful disciplines like Medicine, Engineering, Law and Architecture.

Because a graduate of Religious Studies has zero viability. The only person a graduate of Religious Studies is ahead of is a person without a WAEC certificate.

Nice one from McPherson University who have thought about the people just like Sir Richard MacPherson who did the same with his 1951 constitution.

Covenant University and Redeemers University, what are you waiting for?
Fountain University, Awon NASFAT where are you?

This is a welcome development.

Now this must shift to the northern universities.

To islamatize Nigeria is a must.

So it's reading Law and later becoming Charge-and -Bail and Medicine, becoming a Quack that is a Course? You can't adequately think out the simple reward that awaits a Religious studies graduate who'll later have unlimited access to ALL the tithes and offerings, plus countless visitations to the State Houses spread across the Federal Republic, if he's a good prophet?

Jairus was told that his daughter was dead. Jesus told him 'Fear not, just believe' and he brought her back to life.

We have 46 days left in 2018 and you're afraid that your aspirations for the year won't happen. I encourage you not to fear but keep your faith intact in God.

Guy this your point is myopic. with all due disrespect. So medicine, engineering law and architecture are the only meaningful courses in a university?. No course is useless guy.
