The newly commissioned College of Law of Chrisland University, Abeokuta, has been fully approved and certified for operations by the Council of Legal Education (CLE), the body in charge of the Nigerian Law School.
The approval was made known to the Vice Chancellor, Chrisland University, Prof (Pharm.) Chinedum Peace Babalola, by the Director-General of the CLE, Prof. Isa Hayatu Chiroma, SAN, who noted that the council, which head earlier visited the school, had sat over the request and finally granted it, as all requirements were met.
In an exclusive statement sent to CEOAFRICA by the Vice Chancellor, whose deep sense of joy could not be hidden from the tone of her voice, on Wednesday, the university is exceedingly joyous to announce the good news as all its hard work has never gone unnoticed.
According to the African Union Laureate and woman of many firsts, “The DG of the Council of Legal Education just called me to say that the council met today and approved our Law programme, here, in Chrisland University. Glory! Glory!! Glory!!! We thank God that our efforts have yielded positive results.”
Meanwhile, the National Universities Commission (NUC) had earlier given its nod for the Law programme, some months ago, following the visit of its accreditation team to the world-class Chrisland University’s College of Law.
The first female pharmacist Fellow, African Academy of Science, in her remarks during the 4th convocation ceremony of the school, held last week, expressed optimism that the school would have intakes for Law in the 2022/2023 academic session.
Recall that the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN) recently upgraded the Department of Nursing of the school to a faculty status, increasing its admission quota from 50 to 150 students within few months, following the state-of-the-art facilities found in the university during an accreditation visit, led by the Registrar, NMCN, Alh. Faruk Umar Abubakar, himself.
Chrisland University has continued to plant her footprints in the sand of time, within just seven years of its establishment, with the latest being its ranking 9th among all the private universities in Nigeria and 17th among all the universities in the country.
