|Religion / Joseph Prince Buys Singapore's Mall Of N80 Billion Without Raising Offering by HigherEd: 4:46pm On Dec 06|
The Star Vista is a popular mall in Singpore and already houses The Star Performing Arts Centre, home to Prince's 30,000-strong New Creation Church.
Deacon Yong Chee Ram told The Straits Times that the church had decided to buy the mall so that there would not be any risk to using the space if the property changed hands to a new owner.
"Given that The Star Vista and The Star PAC are inextricably linked, our immediate objective ... is both to protect the interest of the church and to preserve the good experience for all who come to The Star PAC," Ram said.
The sale was made by one of Asia's biggest real estate groups, CapitaLand Limited.
Jason Leow, president of CapitaLand Group Singapore & International said: "The divestment of The Star Vista is in line with CapitaLand's active and disciplined asset recycling strategy. Year to date, CapitaLand has divested close to S$5.7 billion worth of assets, exceeding our annual target divestment of S$3 billion. The proceeds from these divestments will enhance CapitaLand's financial flexibility to seize new growth opportunities."
In 2016, the church said it had paid $366m for the Star PAC, which seats 5,000 people.
It told the Strait Times that it already had the funds to purchase the mall, so did not need to launch a fundraising drive to cover the cost of the acquisition.

ThreeBlackBird:You are funny. Let me explain why UI has international students.
These international students are studying Yoruba Language, Igbo or Hausa. The very courses private universities wouldn't offer. No white person is going to come here to study medicine or engineering for now.

ThreeBlackBird:You see the difference. I would really prefer my own kids to school in Covenant university even if we are residing in the west. One of Nigeria's finest writers Stephanie ..... left the UK to study in CU and then go back home during the holidays.
My father graduated from the University of Ibadan BTW and is still a champion of private education. He knows how many times they had to run to Ago Iwoye just because cultist where either attacking indigenes or oba was busy shooting students.

Ejusni:I graduated many years ago boy. I have never entered the 'labour' market and I don't intend to do so. I have always preferred owning the market.
I see you are just writing Neco. In a few years time you would understand two things.
1) The public school you so much love has drained rather than impact you.
2) That the Labour market that you talk about does not give a flying fvck about your degree. It is purely worthless to the private sector especially if you studied anything engineering and scientific.

Ejusni:Another semi educated graduate throwing unfounded theories up and about. At least get your facts right. Last year Naomi Ekpo a graduate of ABUAD(Private) demolished her counterparts from the public varsity sphere.

ThreeBlackBird:Your very self just made reference to Unilag's inconsistent track record by saying they did well last year and did poorly this year.
If anything, the result from law school indicates there is nothing special about the Law college at Unilag. If they want to prove they are indeed a special status school for law, they should consistently produce the highest number of first class degrees(by proportion not number) for the next seven years and should in fact produce the best graduating students at least 50% of those times.
The last year where Unilag produced 20 first class at Law school represented just 7% of the graduates they sent to Law school. While ABUAD a university founded in 2010 had 12 first graduates representing 6%. So a 1% difference is what the Almighty unilag with special status could shoulder up to a University that is not up to 10 years old.
NUC awarding Unilag full accreditation while denying all other schools means absolutely nothing. NUC alongside other Nigerian regulators are not credible. Things are done at NUC for influence and not merits.
Again ask NUC which Universities since establishment have never lost any accreditation and they would show you AUN and Covenant University. Not one single public university hasn't had her accreditation tussled around by NUC.
Remember that the reason for my write up was to prove that first class graduates from private varsities are not in anyway inferior to those from the public university system and I believe I have done that successfully.
|Education / Re: Mudashir Abiru: The Death Of The Private Vs Public University Debate by HigherEd: 10:21am On Nov 30|
First of all I never made any reference to the number of first class produced by private universities at the law school. But since you veered to that let me indulge you. Babcock alone produced 10 first class at the law school out of a maximum class of 100. Unilag produced 9 out of a maximum of 270(Again, Unilag is the university with full accreditation for offering law)
So Unilag sent 270 graduates to law school and only 3% graduated with a First class at law school.
Babcock sent 100 to Law school and graduated 10% with a First class and to top it all a 2.1 student trumped all the first-class grads from ABU, UI and Unilag.
Even Bowen did better than Unilag, they had 4% of their students graduate with a first class.
Babcock sex scandal?
What are you on about? There was no sex scandal at Babcock university. Two adult students were having sex like students all over the world do. They were only foolish to have recorded their sexual escapades. I'm sure right now as we speak students from Harvard, Stanford, Unilag etc are having pre marital sex. So does a Stanford student having sex erode the value of Stanford. I don't get your point.

Today, Nigeria has a total of 85 and 79 public and private universities respectively. However, while the public sector recruits about 98% of the total student population in Nigeria the private sector can only attract 2% mostly due to the high cost of tuition. Further more, 37 Public Universities in Nigeria offer Law with the highest admission capacity going to the University of Lagos - which is permitted to admit 270 students per annum. 18 private universities are also allowed to offer law as a degree but with lesser approved admission capacities.
It was therefore amusing to many spectators how the much derided and under represented private led education sector was able to graduate the overall best student at the Nigerian law school. And much so, the overall best student Mudashir Abiru who was a 2:1 Graduate of Babcock University triumphing over many first class graduates from University Of Ibadan, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka, Ahmadu Bello University and University of Lagos - the supposed 'special status' law awarding institution with full accreditation.
Not surprisingly, the Private sector has proven her value numerous times as the viable, sustainable model of higher education in Nigeria. Redeemers University founded in 2005 recently became the World Bank African Center of Excellence For Infectious Diseases and has attracted millions of US dollars in grants. Covenant University currently ranks the best University in West Africa by the venerable Times Higher Education. Afe Babalola founded in 2010 last year produced the overall best student at the Nigerian law school. Covenant university also led the PRESSID project three times consecutively under the administration of the last President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Every now and then when Private Universities convoke first class graduates in large numbers we have poorly informed graduates and academics from the public university sector who make condescending commentary against the real worth of the value of their class of degrees which is an erosion on the commitment and diligence these young lads put in to get their degrees.
Today, with a 2.1 graduate of Babcock emerging the overall best at the Nigerian law school i would humorously pay back Public school graduates in their own very coin. A 2.1 in Babcock is equivalent to a first class in Unilag
But in all seriousness, I hope it is time we put an end to the reckless derision and query on the value of degrees obtained at Private Universities.

ThreeBlackBird:As for your early morning rant against CU. Sorry but you won't succeed at driving an equivalence between CU and the straight up crap that happens in your FG schools.
The case of the registrar had nothing to do with sex for marks. They had consensual sex for years in exchange for giving her a pass at CU's community rules.
She later felt it was an assault because she was a minor. But know this, the day she wanted to out him it took a single phone call between her and Oyedepo to get the registrar sacked and evicted from campus. She didn't even need to step a foot in Nigeria.
We didn't need a Kiki mordi to handle that. We the Alumni community outed him and got him sacked. So I'm pretty sure CU's internal control is credible enough to handle anything thrown at it.
As for the Unilag project I feel something else is at play here. First and foremost Dutum delivered the 8 floor Senate building of CU at 350 million naira and is expected to deliver the Unilag Library of 9 floors for 2 billion naira. It's clear there's a lot of fraud going on.
That means CU senate building(350m), Landmark university college(1.2B) and Dominion Hangar(350m) isn't up to Unilag's library budgeted at 2billion. I have seen that building prototype and my company would deliver it for #500 million naira. This is reason why I am not one to run after an FG project. Apart from the fact that there are too many people trying to get a kickback, sometimes they won't pay you on time and then heap the whole blame on you when things go sideways
You see the problem going on for the Unilag project is that there are lots of contesting parties trying to loot Tetfund dry.
As for Dutum's technical track record take a look at this link and understand what I'm saying.
Dutum is not a small player so technical expertise isn't the question here.

If they like let them be harmed with hell fire I really don't care. Nigerians are naive people and they better know it.
The point of my post is not to brag about anyone's wealth but to let people know that no matter how horrible a nation turns out the rich will most likely be fine.
I had friends who when we were all more or less not economically in the right place, we would spend time analysing the disaster called Nigeria. The poor policy, the loopholes. However, the more we grow the more they changed. It's as though when people get richer they forget the plight of their own parents, villages and communities. This is why a child of a pensioner who saw his own parents suffer from non payment of pension can become governor and deny other people's parent of their pensions. He simply forgot the pains and cruelty.
This is why Oyedepo has repeatedly earned my respect following the recent elections. As a top 5 pastor in Nigeria you enjoy a whole lot of things. Including unrestricted access to Aso Rock. Oyedepo by fighting what he knew was bad for the country despite being one of the least touched turned himself into a target for govt.
Oyedepo, Adeboye, Kumuyi, Oyakhilome, Olukoya are folks which enjoy privileges the likes of Dangote, Alakija enjoy. If you notice many of them express discontent, they rarely strongly condemn govt. And as long as that mutual respect exist EVEN A MUSLIM PRESIDENT WOULD DEFEND THE INTEREST OF PASTORS.
Example: Buhari was quick to fire the person who dared to tell GOs to step down. But was unwillingly to fight for Christians being slaughtered.
I can tell you that if not for Adeboye that many in the ruling party don't want to offend they would have shown Oyedepo pepper in this admin. Yet we had Nigerians talking crap against the man. I since concluded that Nigerians deserve what they get.

On a side note. I remember during the presidential elections when the likes of Oyedepo was severely kicking against the election of Buhari, many people called him unprintable names. Some went as far as saying the man's source of wealth has been blocked and that was why he was always complaining.
That sounded laughable to some of us who are fully aware of the financial strength of the Living Faith Church. Anyway, within that same Buhari admin the man changed his Private Jet and even Chopper. So that doesn't seem like what a sinking person would do.

Bishop Oyedepo visits Dominion University, Anoints and Prays for the University to Succeed.
Bishop David Oyedepo, Chancellor of Covenant and Landmark Universities was yesterday guest of Bishop Taiwo Adelakun, Chancellor, Dominion University, Ibadan.
Bishop Oyedepo arrived with his wife, Pastor Faith Oyedepo on the morning of Thursday 20th November 2019 and was taken on a walk round the university before addressing the staff and students at the university auditorium, meeting the University Senate and anointing the school premises.
According to the university’s Facebook page, the institution was excited about the visit and made good comments about it:
We are still excited about the PROPHETIC visit of our Mentors, the Chancellor of Covenant University (Our model institution), Bishop David Oyedepo and his beautiful wife, Pastor Faith Oyedepo. Our Chancellor, Bishop Taiwo Adelakun took his mentors on a tour round our school facilities. We appreciate all the prayers made today and for believing in the future of our great Institution "Dominon University".
Plans for the establishment of Dominion University started in 2013. Fortunately, on 9th January 2019, it was approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria as the 73rd Private University. Over 50 universities in Nigeria are owned by Churches while Dominion University proprietors are the Bishop Taiwo Adelakun led Victory International Church, aka Rehoboth Cathedral.
On 5th February, Dominion University received her license and hosted the Nigerian Vice President, Pastor Yemi Osinbajo on 11th July. A few weeks, precisely on 29th October, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Visitor of Redeemers University of Nations visited the university for its Inauguration Service while Bishop David Oyedepo will once again make a trip to the institution on Saturday 30th November 2019 for her Commencement Service.
