Ajayi Crowther University, Osoogun Campus is to be established immediately. Already, in addition to the St. Andrews campus Oyo, two new campuses (College of Medicine and Faculty of Engineering), as well as Faculty of Agriculture at Awe campus were opened within the past six months.
The VC, the Rt. Rev’d Prof. Dapo Asaju, with the Bishop of Ajayi Crowther Diocese, the Rt. Rev’d Kemi Oduntan, dedicated the 40 hectares of land for the take-off of the University. The University will host the ‘Centre for Anglican Communion studies’ , ‘Centre for Mission Studies’ , ‘Department of History and Archival studies’ ‘Entrepreneurship Centre’ and Faculty of Agriculture: to take off in September 2020.
Also proposed here are: Crowther Museum and Archive and eventually, the mausoleum to contain the remains of Bishop Ajayi Crowther whose remains need to be reburied in his home town, Osoogun where he was captured in 1821 (this will be determined by the national church). So far, 94 buildings were executed in the three campuses during the five year tenure of the VC Asaju, all internally funded. Pray for us to accomplish these aspirations for Osoogun in the few (four) months left of my tenure as VC.
–Rt. Rev’d Prof. Dapo Asaju, Bishop Theologian.
