5President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday attended the launching of a private university, Eagle Heights, owned by the National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

The Nigerian president was also in attendance when the Senior Pastor of the Word of Life Bible Church in Warri, Delta State, was presented a $4.9 million private jet – his first – in 2012 by members of his congregation to commemorate his 40th year anniversary as a preacher.

At the foundation laying ceremony of the private university located at Omadino, Warri South Local Government Area, of Delta State, President Jonathan was joined by dignitaries including the host governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse II and Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, among others.

Oritsejafor, who almost two years ago first joined the swelling rank of private jet-owning pastors in Nigeria, yesterday formally joined the league of private universities’ owners in the country.

Universities owned by pastors and Churches in Nigeria have been criticized for charging their students what has been termed outrageously high tuition fees, neglecting the less-privileged members of the congregation, whose meagre contributions might have gone a long way in establishing the schools.

Information Nigeria reports that Pastor Oritsejafor’s university is expected to admit students for the 2014/15 academic session.
