Redeemer’s varsity to invest in infrastructure, human capital
Vice-Chancellor, Redeemer’s University, Ede, Osun State, Prof. Anthony Akinlo, has promised that the school would invest more in world-class infrastructure and human capital for sustainable leadership above its peers in the country.
He also charged all staff of the university to brace up for higher performance for sustainable leadership in the Nigerian education space.
Speaking on the recent achievement of the institution as the best private university in Nigeria, Akinlo stated that the feat has conferred higher responsibility on the institution, adding that the ranking would increase healthy competition among its peers within the Nigerian university system.
He said he foresees a situation where all the participants would go back to the drawing board to do the needful, which would position them for better ranking by meeting the set standards and performance metrics.
The Professor of Economics warned against complacency, urging all staff to work harder, compete better and get set for higher performance for sustainable leadership in every area.
It could be recalled that the Visitor of Redeemer’s University and General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, during a sermon at Akwa Ibom Carol Festival 2021, commented on the recent ranking of the university as the Best Private University in Nigeria, saying the university God helped him to start few years ago, has become number two in the whole land, next to the oldest of all the universities, the University of Ibadan.
“When people ask, “How come? I say when you meet the Redeemer, he changes everything. He changes your failure to success; He changes your sorrow to joy; He changes your barrenness to fruitfulness; He changes your sickness to health; He changes everything,” he said.
