How Nigerian Universities Can Emerge World Class – Covenant varsity VC


The Vice-Chancellor, Covenant University, Otta, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, has said that Nigerian universities require intensive and impactful research, alongside teaching and community service to emerge world class.

Adebayo said this at a workshop held at the University of Benin on Thursday.

The workshop was captioned, “University ranking: Experiences of Covenant University”.

The workshop was organised by the University of Benin’s Centre of Excellence in Reproductive Health Innovation (CERHI).

The vice-chancellor said that universities in Nigeria could not continue to do what they were used to and expect different results.

Covenant University, he said, had long resolved to be doing even what the world class universities, such as Harvard and Oxford, were not doing; hence its high rating amongst the world higher institutions.

“Most universities in Nigeria concentrate on teaching and, perhaps, community service and have left out the area of research.
