The chairman added that the curriculum of the institution is predicated on sound moral values laced in academics, preparing students to compete with their counterparts anywhere in the world.

“The university is just about two and a half years old and it has quite a lot of things to offer and with your collaboration, thinking along with us, knowing our own vision, we will be able to propagate this for the world to understand, to know that we are here and we can compete. In fact, we are already competing, anywhere that the word University is mentioned in the world,” Abraham said.

Abraham said that the institution remains his personal vision that will prepare graduates differently to meet with emerging trends in education worldwide.

He said  “Discipline is our watchword to ensure success and we are very serious of the characters of students admitted into the institution.

“We teach our students moral and leadership qualities. In building future leaders here, we nurture our students and do not allow them to wander.”

In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof Patrick Ebeowo, said the institution will remain a centre of attraction in the south south in education with the infrastructure and academic manpower on ground .

Ebeowo said that Topfaith University has commenced the task of ending education tourism, as he was deployed from Kenya back to Nigeria to serve as vice chancellor of the institution.

He said that the Topfaith University which started with 177 students, now has increased to over 500 undergraduates offering different courses in five faculties and 24 departments.

“By the time we started, many students had already made different choices of institution in their JAMB applications.

“All we did was give them a choice to still come here if they really wanted to and with the special blessing from God, we started with 104 students. The second year, we had about 177 students.

“By our last matriculation, which is the third matriculation we’ve had, we had 210. We have close to 500 students now, in spite of the economic situation in the country,” Ebeowo said.

The vice chancellor said all the four courses of the institution have been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
