Precious Cornerstone University (PCU) Ibadan, a faith-based institution owned by The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, has been granted licence by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to operate fully as a private university.
Professor Kola Oloke, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, disclosed this on Sunday while formally presenting the licence to the Chancellor of the institution, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, at the PCU auditorium at Victory Garden, Ibadan.
The university which took off in 2019 and now at 300 level, and expected to graduate its first set by 2022, had before now, been operating on a provisional licence.
Speaking at the presentation of the certificate which was signed by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu on 7th April,2021, Bishop Wale Oke who is also the presiding Bishop of the ministry, said it was the result of series of assessments carried out by the NUC on the university that gave birth to the feat.
The Cleric who is also the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), assured that nothing would be left undone in a bid to make the PCU renowned as a centre of academic excellence.
While commending the university management for their efforts so far, he charged them not to rest on their oars until the goals of the institution are achieved as articulated and envisioned.
