Eight new courses will join the 23 courses on offer at Clifford University, Owerrinta, Abia State, in the 2022/2023 academic year commencing in October 2022, Vice-Chancellor Prof Chimezie Omeonu disclosed on Sunday, 14 August.
Omeonu disclosed news of the new courses as Keynote Speaker at the third graduation ceremony of the TEDA School, Eke-Owerri, Obingwa LGA of Abia State. Eighty-five students passed out of the Total Education Development Academy in the 2022 “Emeralds” class at a colourful ceremony witnessed by eminent administrators, academics, family, and friends.
Omeonu said the courses include Medical Laboratory Science, Public Health, Environmental Health Science, Law and Social Justice, Guidance and Counselling, Library and Information Science, Personnel Management and Computer Science Education.
The vice-chancellor said the eight new courses would add to the 26 programmes that Clifford University currently runs.
Clifford University is a private Christian co-educational Nigerian university owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Nigeria. The university is in Ihie, Abia State, Nigeria, and belongs to the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world’s second-largest Christian school system.
Omeonu charged graduating TEDA students to go into the world and showcase their strong foundation of learning, morals, and faith. He cautioned them against indolence or debilitating exuberance of youth that could derail their journeys. He asked that they learn to work collaboratively with others in life’s journey.
TEDA School commenced in 2013 with six students but now has a student roll of 750 students and a staff complement of 117 personnel.
Omeonu also canvassed the students to consider choosing Clifford University for the next level of their education.
Clifford University took off on land that belonged to an Adventist school until the government seized it following the country’s 1967–70 civil war. The government returned the land to the church in 2013.
The Adventist Church named the school after Jesse Clifford – a British missionary who brought Adventism to eastern Nigeria in 1923, serving in Nigeria for eight years.
