Know: Kings varsity commences operation, as 120 students get scholarship
Kings University, Ode-Omu, Osun State, recently matriculated its pioneer students and officially inaugurated the school.Founder and chancellor, Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo, who awarded scholarships to 120 students of the school, said the university aims at raising leaders that would impact the world economically, intellectually and socially, apart from leading Nigeria to join the league of technologically advanced nations.
According to the chancellor, the faith-based school will lay emphasis on information technology, leadership and entrepreneurship.
He said: “In Nigeria, most institutions only inform the head and do not transform the mind, making their products skillful thieves that know how to rig elections and squander public fund. Our products shall make the difference; take the nation to greater height. We have begun talks with Oxford University, London, to partner with us to achieve our goals.”
Expressing optimism that the school will do well, the Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed that apart from being the first university in the country to be commissioned with its pioneer students, the university has been on its permanent site long before the National Universities Commission (NUC) licensed it.
