The British Council has provided a £10,000 grant to support entrepreneurship education at Covenant University and the Kwara State University (KWASU).
On the direct impact of the grant to KWASU, the funds would help boost KWASU’s Entrepreneurship Centre (EC) for the purpose of launching and developing Startup companies to solve problems, create wealth and generate employment opportunities.
It is also expected to enhance students’ creativity and ability to set up their own business, while deepening the relationship between Covenant University and KWASU.
Expressing delight at the groundbreaking feat, the Vice-Chancellor of Kwara State University, Professor AbdulRasheed Na’Allah, commended the institutions’ Centre for Entrepreneurship for teaming up with Covenant and Wolverhampton Universities in its application for the grant.
“I am very proud of the exceptional performance by this award winning centre and commend its strategy to join forces with the Industry in educating our students about the fact that there is no level that they cannot achieve in the creation of wealth as long as they develop great ideas and work along successful and innovative lines.
“I also commend KWASU Centre for Entrepreneurship for collaborating with Nigeria’s Covenant University and Great Britain’s Wolverhampton University in its application for this grant,” he said.
