RE: EDO UNIVERSITY IYAMHO OPERATING LICENSE REVOKED BY NUC
A REBUTTAL
The attention of the Management of Edo University Iyamho has been drawn to a news item being peddled in some social media platforms.
The University Management wishes to inform the general public, parents, students and prospective applicants that the information being peddled is false, baseless and unfounded. The University is running. In fact, admission for the 2019/2020 Academic Session is currently ongoing. Prospective applicants are advised to visit the University website http://www.edouniversity.edu.ng for information and enquiries
The University authority wishes to use this medium to call on the general public to disregard the fake news aimed at tarnishing the image and name the University has built over the last few years of its existence. It is on record that Edo University Iyamho is one of the fastest growing universities in Nigeria.
The University Management states categorically that Edo University Iyamho has no dispute over the ownership of the University. The University is a property of the Edo State Government as it was established by a law of the Edo State House of Assembly, signed into law by the Executive Governor and given recognition by the NUC as the 41st State owned University in Nigeria in 2016. The University is fully owned by the Edo State Government.
The University Management wishes to assure the general public that the University will continue to maintain the highest standard possible in delivering quality Education to Nigerians.
