This is why Bishop Oyedepo plans to establish 7 universities
The Chancellor of Covenant University and Landmark University in an interview said he plans to establish seven universities.
The Chancellor of Covenant University in Ogun state and Landmark University in Kwara state in an interview said he plans to establish seven universities.
When asked why he wants to found five more universities in addition to the two he already has, the Bishop said he is trying to avoid having too many students on one campus.
''We are trying to avoid having too many students on one campus so that we will not lose the quality of the training programme. Otherwise, the quality would wear down gradually. But because of the present security challenge that the nation is facing, it’s normal for us to review our approach in a manner that does not create tension for workers and anybody else.
''We believe God to help us out of the crisis. So if there are no adequate mentioning of our programmes, it is to create adequate room to see these security issues overturned''.
Meanwhile, the founder of the Living Faith Church has disclosed that the Church has not made any profit from the Covenant University which was established in 2002.
Oyedepo argues that the tuition fee students pay at Covenant University is worth the service the institution renders.
You will recall that Nigerians came for the Man of God in 2016 when he announced that the tuition fee increase was approved by God.
''Tuition fees hike has God approval''- Oyedepo 2016.
The current tuition fee of the University was increased in November 2016 from N631,000 to N799, 500. According to Bishop Oyedepo, the tuition fees had God approval.
However, the Man of God warned people to stop criticising Covenant University school fees or face God's wrath.
The tuition fee of faith-based institutions in Nigeria always attracts controversy as people complain and accuse church founders of shortchanging their poor members who financially contribute to the establishment of the universities but can not send their parents to the schools.
