The School has been working to carry out its share of responsibility towards the fulfillment of the University’s grand vision to become one of the top ten Universities in Africa. To that end, the school has been making sure that researchers would get the forums to present their research works and share ideas with fellow scholars. Academic staffs have been conducting researches in different topics that are expected to have immense importance in solving community’s problem.
