Vice-Chancellor’s Welcome Note.

Prof. Anthony Okere

You are welcome to the website of Hezekiah University, Umudi: the University of the moment. The University was founded by Living Christ Mission Inc. in May, 2015, as a faith-based institution that admits persons of every religion. It is the first private university in Imo State and unarguably the cheapest private university in Nigeria where each student enjoys a scholarship from the Founder and Promoter, His Grace, The Most Rev. Prof. Daddy Hezekiah MFR.

The University offers a number of programmes in the Natural and Applied Sciences, Humanities and Management Sciences as you will find in designated dropdown buttons. It hopes to increase the number of available faculties and academic programmes as it grows, but will normally consolidate existing ones. It maintains a high standard of academic delivery. You will certainly agree that the quality of a university is dependent on the quality of the teaching staff. To this end, we have very qualified lecturers from more than six universities in Nigeria and overseas working here as adjunct lecturers. They bring the mixed high standards from their different universities to improve on what we have here.

Dear parents and prospective students, place your trust in us and experience the University that has zero tolerance for cultism, drug addiction, waywardness and other vices. There is absolutely no ASUU Strike here. Our motto is: Academic Excellence with Good Morals. We intend to keep it so. So, our students are always in good hands.

You can allow us to build your dreams.


Hezekiah University is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, research and community service, and developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally.

  • International Focus – Our students come from across the globe.

  • Accredited Courses – We encourage learning and growth.

  • People, not Profits – Education is a right, not a privilege.

If you prefer to study in your own time and at your own speed, then one of our e-learning packages may be exactly what you need.


The mission of the University is ‘to build a citadel of academic excellence that provides a high internationally-acceptable standard of education in an environment supportive of teaching, research and community service for the good of self and society’.

The vision of Hezekiah University is to bring qualitative and functional higher education closer to the people and to play a leading role in the socio-economic and cultural development of the communities that it serves.

The motto of the University is, ‘Academic Excellence with Good Morals.’ The motto signifies the responsibilities that become incumbent upon the acquisition of knowledge, which make graduands to be the guardians of society such that knowledge that seeks to destroy society must not be contained.

The University has three major colours: blue, white and red.

The blue colour symbolizes unity and love, which shall reign within the university community. The white colour symbolizes purity and good morals, which constitute an integral part of the university motto. The red colour symbolizes the blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed for the salvation of mankind.

Hezekiah University was established as a private university in May 2015 under the license of the Federal Government of Nigeria. The idea to start the Hezekiah University was initiated in 2004 after which the initial contact with the National Universities Commission (NUC) was made. Thus, the application forms for the establishment of the university were obtained to begin the process of obtaining a license for the university.

The university is a direct response of Living Christ Mission Inc. to the crisis of access to university education facing the annual mass of qualified applicants seeking admission into existing Nigerian universities. The university is envisioned as the vehicle, amongst others already in place, through which the Church can influence its congregation, its immediate community and indeed Nigeria. The goal is to develop a world-class institution that shall be the pride of the Church’s congregation and indeed all Nigerians. It is in line with this focus that the Church sought to establish a university as is permitted under the Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The idea of Hezekiah University was conceived and has continued to be nurtured in line with the mission, vision, aims and objectives of the Living Christ Mission Inc. and the wish to contribute to national development, and particularly to enhance educational opportunities for our teeming youths in quest of higher learning.
