Landmark University Produces 39 First Class Graduates

Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State, one of the universities owned by the Living Faith Church has produced 39 1st class graduates. Out of the 386 students that graduated during the 2013/2014 convocation ceremony, 39 students came out with a 1st class degree, 186 students graduated in 2nd class Upper, 152 in the 2nd class lower and 9 students graduated with a 3rd class degree.

The Chancellor of the University, Bishop David Oyedepo said, “The investment of our church in education is therefore a visionary move aimed, in the case of Landmark University, at prosecuting an agricultural revolution as a solution to the nation’s food challenges.We are releasing this set of pathfinders also as highly employable graduates, having been specially equipped as productive human resources entities. These graduates have run through a unique education mill and have been equipped with required leadership skills to become agents of change in the leadership that awaits them.”

Oyedepo, who is also the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, appealed to Nigerian leaders to redesign their policies towards developing agriculture so as to reduce the high rate of unemployment and insecurity in the country. He claimed that the university authorities had tackled the nation’s challenge of low enrolment for agricultural programmes. He also added that the management had carried out enlightenment visits to secondary schools and had instituted scholarship programme for students of agriculture.

“In preparing our students for the world of work and in line with the agriculture revolution mandate of the university, farm practice is a mandatory aspect of their curriculum for all students to develop their agricultural entrepreneurial skill, which helps to generate their interest in agriculture, as well help them understand the dignity of labour,”
he said. The Vice-Chancellor, Landmark University, Prof. Ola-Rotimi Ajayi, said the varsity had established collaboration with leading research organisations to enhance the performance of the students.
