Achievers University, Owo, was conceived by a group of Nigerians who have a vision to establish a world-class University. I was privileged to be appointed as a member of the Planning and Implementation Committee in 2004. All through the period of three years of my service in the Committee, it was clearly evident from the seriousness and the commitment of the promoters that a well-focused University would emerge.
By the time the Federal Government of Nigeria approved the University on 24th October, 2007, virtually all the facilities to ensure a smooth take-off of the University were on ground. It was, therefore, not a surprise that four months after the licensing of the University by the National Universities Commission (precisely on 11th December, 2007), the University officially started operation i.e. 2nd April, 2008.
The pioneer students, numbering 149, resumed for the first semester of 2007/2008 Academic Session on 7th April, 2008. Since then, a lot has been accomplished at Achievers University in terms of quality of tuition and infrastructural development. No doubt, a number of challenges confronted us as pioneer management; it is gratifying to note that within 100 days of operation, all academic and frontline officers had been properly accommodated.
The Governing Council of the University exhibited the serious commitment to excellence by ensuring that all offices are internet-connected; the entire University premises is internet serviced; all classrooms installed with interactive boards; and genuine efforts made to recruit qualified and experienced lecturers. Every student of the University is provided with accommodation as this constitutes one of the policies of the University. Read More »
