Bishop David Oyedepo, the Chancellor of Covenant University, has said that the university will kick off studies in law and medicine before the end of 2014. Oyedepo said this at a press briefing announcing the 10th year anniversary celebration of the university.

According to him; “Designs and details for constructing faculties of law and medicine are ongoing. By 2013, latest 2014, the faculty of law will kick off. A large portion of our property is being developed to build a world class teaching hospital that will enhance medical services.”

When the arrangements are finalized, he said, these will be at Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State and Landmark University, its sister university in Kwara State.

Oyedepo also used the opportunity to announce that Living Faith Church is set to begin two new universities: “As at 2006, we had seven universities in our 25-year plan; four in Nigeria, and three in other African countries. Construction for the third university in Nigeria, Crown University, will begin in January. Crown University will be based in Calabar and will focus on maritime studies.”
