A school where the head as well as the heart would be educated, and where all subjects would be taught through the eye of the word of God.”
He urged the graduating students to be “the change we want to impart on society,” adding that with the accreditation of the school’s academic programmes by the National Universities Commission (NUC), the university was preparing to takeoff its college of medicine.
