Crescent University programmes were scored as follows:

This is unprecedented and we are indeed very grateful for your considerable supports”.
Prof. Gbajabiamila expressed his appreciation to all members of staff for meeting up with all tight deadlines and noted that their contributions in securing full accreditation for the programmes for a period of five years were worthy.
In his post-accreditation interaction with professors, deans , heads of departments and other stakeholders, Prof. Gbajabiamila charged all and sundry not to rest on their oars “to sustain this glory.”
