More insights have emerged on the factors driving the establishment of the $1billion University of Science and Technology in Arigidi Akoko,Ondo State, by leading African prophet, TB Joshua (MFR).
TB Joshua is the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), headquartered in Lagos and hails from Ondo State where he started his ministry before relocating as church membership grew out of population.
Business Hilights investigations revealed that the salvation, healing and deliverance centered man of God had been nursing the plan and variously hinted of the need to set up a world class University of Medicine to serve as a complementary institution to his ministry located at Ikotu Egbe in Alimosho Local Government of Lagos.
During one of the Church service some years ago, he revealed that the essence of setting up the University teaching Hospital is to help in complementing spiritual healing where normal physical is needed.
The idea to float the University of Medicine had been a long-time plan of the Prophet who always say that the scheme will take off at the moment he receives a clear directive from God to begin.
Additional features coming for the Varsity include airfield and helipad for private jets, helicopters and Naval airships to compliment the Naval School at Imeri, first of its kind in the Universe.
In addition, the university will also boast of over 90 foreign expatriates as its academic staff while the supporting and administrative staff will be sourced within Nigeria.
Already, his kinsmen under the aegis of Akoko Progressive Union in Akure, the Ondo State capital, have started thanking the Man of God for deciding to sculpture the academic edifice at home.
In a statement, the Union said “We equally thank the governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Akeredolu for the quick release of the C of O of the university land. Long live Prophet T.B Joshua. Long live Akoko land”.
