The four girls were among the 24 Chibok girls who escaped Boko Haram in 2014.

They were reportedly offered scholarships under a special preparatory program set up by the University's management.

Also amongst the newly matriculated students were 18 winners of the 67 competitive AUN scholarships for postgraduate programs, as well as several new intakes transferring from other universities in Ghana, Lebanon, Egypt, the United States and some European countries.

Margee Ensign, the President of AUN,  assured the students that they would receive the kind of education which would allow them become leaders in their chosen fields.

“This kind of education will train you to look at problems from varying perspectives."

“All universities identify new problems, come up with new ideas. They discover new truths and some change society. At AUN, Africa’s first Development University, this is what we are trying to accomplish.

“We not only provide you with a different sort of education, we provide you with the intellectual tools to become the future leaders of Africa.‎”
