Department of Economics


Assalamu alaikum,

I am honored and privileged to write this piece of speech. First of all, I would like to give thanks to God the Almighty for all the blessings He has bestowed on us. Secondly, I will like to commend the efforts of the management team, academic and non- teaching staff for the successful completion of the First Semester Examination 2016/2017 session.

I will like to call on our students to abide by the University’s rules and regulations and to be good ambassadors of the University wherever they may find themselves. Any student found wanting shall be punished accordingly. We want our students to be the best in all ramifications so that our economy can be one of the best in the World. When a doctor makes a mistake on a person, the person suffers but if an economist makes a mistake, the entire society suffer.

To be a recognized department of excellence with emphasis in field and laboratory work for the advancement of humanity.
To generate knowledge and involve both students and staff in the constant research and learning process, thereby impacting positively on our immediate host community and the world at large.
The general philosophy in this department is to produce graduates with sufficient academic background, skills and practical experience and who are capable of solving local problems and able to rise to the challenges of a developing economy.
