Pastor Samuel Olatunji, Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Trinity University, has called on all Christians to continue to promote unity as commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ, adding that the adherence to the instruction would yield unprecedented achievement.
Olatunji made the call at the special thanksgiving service in Lagos to celebrate the licensing of the university by the Nigeria Universities Commission (NUC).
He said that the university’s emergence was an evidence of the spirit of oneness in Christ, which dated back to the 90s when Trinity International College was established by the BoT and has remained steady in its progress in the academic field.
“In the 90s, the condition of the education sector in our country displayed worrying signals of decay in terms of quality of curriculum and content, as well as competence and character. The decline was so alarming.
“Realizing that lamentation would not solve the problem, about 25 years ago, we decided to establish a secondary school and later primary in our own style, which would inculcate into our pupils not only academic excellence, but also morals and character,” he stated.
Olatunji however stated that the school’s achievement led to BoT to establish Trinity University to replicate the success of the primary and secondary schools.
He noted that the license was collected in Feb. and that the institution’s academic activities would commence in April 2019 with students who passed the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Examination and who made the university their first choice.
“We have basically two facilities made up of Sciences, Arts and Social, as well as Management Sciences in fifteen different programs and degrees for a start,” Olatunji added.
