NUC grants Precious Cornerstone University full licence


The National Universities Commission (NUC) has granted licence to the Precious Cornerstone University (PCU), Ibadan to operate fully as a private university.

This is a faith based institution, owned by the Sword of the Spirit Ministries.

The Vice Chancellor of the PCU, Professor Kola Oloke, made this known when he formally presented the licence to the Chancellor of the institution, Bishop Wale Oke, at the PCU auditorium at Victory Garden, Ibadan.

The university, which took off in 2019 and now at 300 level, and expected to graduate its first set next year – 2022, had before now, been operating on provisional licence.

Speaking at the presentation of the certificate which was signed by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, on 7th April, 2021, Bishop Oke, who is also the presiding Bishop of the ministry, said it was the result of series of assessments carried out by the NUC on the university that culminated into the feat.

Oke, who is also the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), assured the public that nothing would be left undone in a bid to make the PCU renowned as a centre of academic excellence.
