Dr. David Oyedepo, the Chancellor of Covenant University (CU), Ota, Ogun State and the Bishop of Living Faith Worldwide revealed that the foundation for the third of the planned seven universities of the church will be laid in January, next year.
According to the Bishop, four universities are to be established in Nigeria and three others to be spread in West, Central and East African nations was part of the church’s resolve to reclaim the lost glories in the continent.
The cleric said the third ivory tower, which will be named Crown University, would be sited in Calabar, Cross Rivers State. The university will primarily focus on Maritime studies.
Bishop Oyedepo blamed the rot in the nation’s education system on what he described as ill-advised decision of the government to takeover schools from the missionaries.
He said the foundation of education in the country cannot be discussed without the influence of the missionaries, who he said established the first school in Badagry in 1843.
