    UK’s King’s College Hails ABUAD for Education Excellence

    President of the foremost United Kingdom (UK) university, the King’s College London, Prof. ShitijKapur, has described the achievements recorded by Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), as unparalleled within a decade of its establishment.

    Kapur said he was particularly amazed that the students’ population of over 8,000, which ABUAD recorded within a decade, took King’s College more than a century to achieve.

    He stated this at the weekend, during the launching of Afe Babalola Centre for Transnational Education at King’s College London, held at ABUAD campus.

    The President of King’s College, who led some management members of the institution to the event, also described the ABUAD Multi System Hospital as another unbelievable record set by the young citadel of learning within a decade of its existence.

    He said the team came to learn from the ambition and mission of ABUAD that resulted in its unprecedented achievements recorded within its short lifespan.

    In her remarks, Vice President, International Engagement and Service, King’s College, Prof. Funmi Olonisakin, said the Centre would give opportunity for the brightest students in Africa quality education.

    Also, while fielding questions from newsmen, founder of ABUAD, Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), described the launching of the Centre as an assurance that under-privileged people would have access to education.

    He said: “This development is an assurance to me that the under-privileged will access education and the future is bright. There are so many people who could not afford to go to school, like in my own case.’’

    “This relationship we are having with the King’s College will give them the opportunity to learn without necessarily going to King’s college or ABUAD and yet they can become graduates like I did.”
