Landmark University was still basking in the euphoria of graduating her first set of students from Engineering programmes and the College of Agricultural Sciences in her 2nd Convocation Ceremony, when the July edition of the Ranking Web of Universities was released, ranking Landmark University as the number 1 private University and 15 among the entire Universities in Nigeria. A feat the University attributed to God’s helps in her operations and the quality of Faculty and Staff which He has given the privileged to serve here.
Landmark University which is barely four years old was established under the auspices of the Living Faith Church Commission Worldwide headed by Bishop David Oyedepo in March 2011. The University opened its gates for Undergraduate academic operations on the 21st of March 2011 with three colleges; Agricultural sciences; Science and Engineering; and Business and Social Sciences. The institution presently runs twenty-three (23) programmes that are accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and other relevant professional bodies.
The Vice-Chancellor Professor Aize Obayan, the Management, Faculty and Staff of the University are excited about the development, as all is being put in place to scale new heights.
It is worth noting that Landmark University is the first Private University in Nigeria to set an enviable pace in the pursuit of Agriculture in terms of providing both human and material resources to revolutionize the psyche of youths towards Agriculture and Agri- business that will culminate into food security, employment and robust economy for the nation.
The University is driven by a Vision and a Mission to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in the Continent of Africa. In the words of the Chancellor Dr. David Oyedepo, “Landmark University has come to rewrite this history, especially in terms of feeding the nation and eliminating hunger because we believe hunger and poverty are the greatest problems of the African Continent”
The Institution has in its short years of existence released two sets of graduates who are christened “Pathfinders.”
