About Benson Idahosa University
In 1992, Archbishop Benson Idahosa applied to the Honorable Minister of Education for a license to establish and operate a private University. Following this development, an expert team of Academics and Professionals was set up to prepare a feasibility report, an Academic Brief and develop a Master Plan for the proposed University. Operating as the institute of continuous learning (ICL), the proposed University organized academic and professional programs for young students.
In 1998, Christian Faith University became Benson Idahosa University and F.E.B Idahosa became the university’s second president. In February 2002, ten years after the application to start a private University, the Federal Government, acting through the national Universities Commission (NUC), graciously granted Benson Idahosa University license to operate. The University started operating as a fully licensed institution in March 2002 with an initial student enrolment of 400, registered into two faculties (Faculty of Arts, Social Sciences, Education and Faculty of Basic and Applied Sciences).
