Oyedepo, at the 19th matriculation ceremony of the institution for the 2020/2021 academic session, reiterated the school’s commitment to empowering students through qualitative education to solve the nation’s challenges.

“The nation needs to invest and focus more on capacity building to surmount some of the country’s challenges. We are raising a new generation of leaders through a broad-based qualitative education built on sound biblical principles, culminating in the birth of path-finders, pace-setters, and trail-blazers.”
