Madonna University Nigeria School Anthem Lyrics
Born out of a Desirous Mind,
To help and promote,
Love for education and morals,
An Institution with a difference,
Built on a hilltop of excellence and morals,
Citadel of Learning with devoted lecturers,
And ever zealous students,
Founded by Very Rev. Fr. Prof. Emmanuel Matthew Paul Edeh,
Entrusted into the caring hands of Father Founder and Chancellor,
Environment conducive for learning,
Unbeatable in education and morals,
A Centre of excellence,
We hail thee.
Their story dates back to the late 90s, when Very Rev. Fr. Prof. E.M.P. Edeh CSSp, OFR, founded the prestigious Madonna University. By 1999, she had commenced active operation with the approval of the Federal Government of Nigeria. That year, Madonna University not only became the first private Catholic university in the West African sub-region but also the first private university to be approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria, with its take-off campus at Okija, Anambra State.
Madonna University, Nigeria currently operates under three campuses: in 2004 the main management campus was moved to Elele, Rivers State, with the Okija campus remaining one of its campuses, and in 2011 its Akpugo campus, for the engineering and technology sciences, came into full operation.
