With great joy in my heart, I welcome our amiable students and faculty to the second semester 2021/2022 session. We have made much progress having attained a full departmental status this semester. The support from the university management for this newly attained status has been tremendous and of course from our ‘mother department’ Biological Sciences!
Expectations are high for many students in chapel, entrepreneurial, and extracurricular activities slated for the semester aside from the regular and compact academic activities. This will enhance a physical, spiritual, and mental balance in our students for maximal delivery of learning outcomes.
To all our 300 level students presently on their compulsory Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES), Please excel in all you do and we’ll be eagerly expecting your presentation to the department on all your exciting discoveries upon your return.
And to all parents/Guardians of our dear students, we love you and pray that the Lord will continue to grace you to nurture your wards to God’s desired product in Jesus's mighty name, Amen!
To our prospective students, your choice is right with us, wait for no further to activate your admission processing into our department and join the army of global trailblazers, absolutely empowered to excel!!!…..
