this challenge. Starting from the bedrock of a Staff Development platform, the
University, through the School of Postgraduate Studies, is committed to
developing and implementing postgraduate programmes which will provide the
foundation for achieving the University’s goal of being a leading Research
University in its desire to align itself with Nigeria’s Vision 20-2020, which
seeks to consolidate the Country’s leadership role in Africa in particular and
the world at large.
