The cleric described ABUAD as message to other Nigerian Universities, saying, “they can be centers of excellence and an all round human development centers, as well as of global reckoning. If it is possible in ABUAD, it is also possible in other universities.
“I have been to the university to study and I have friends who own Universities, but ABUAD stands out. “God has made ABUAD to be flourishing in the life time of Babalola and the Bible says that they shall still bring forth fruits in their old age. I am seeing Europe in ABUAD. It is a university of tomorrow.”
