It has always been our dream and aspiration to nurture, train and produce dedicated and committed young men and women who shall become the curators, architects and transformers of society. This dream has been inspired by our personal experiences of the impact education has made in our lives. It is also inspired by the need to give something back to society as recompense and recognition for the benefits and blessings that we have received from our communities, societies, Nigeria and Africa in general. We have identified education as the single most important tool for the emancipation of the individual, and for the transformation of society.
Our intent and that of SteadyFlow International has also manifested in our engagement in the betterment of the lives of the less-privileged in society. To further actualize our dream, we established the SteadyFlow Nursery and Primary Schools, Abuja in 2001, the SteadyFlow International High School, Abuja in 2007, and the SteadyFlow College of Education, Akparabong, Ikom in 2012.
Our good intentions and the successes recorded in the provision of education at the nursery, primary, secondary, and tertiary levels have fueled the drive that led to the establishment of Havilla University as a centre of academic excellence.
On November 6, 2021, the Unveiling Ceremony of Havilla University took place under the Chairmanship of Sen. Kanu Agabi, SAN, GCON, ably represented by Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN. During the occasion, the Chairman, Board of Trustees, Prof. Florence Banku Obi, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) of the University of Calabar, performed the Investiture ceremony of the Pioneer Vice-Chancellor of Havilla University, Prof. Samuel Tita Wara.
Also on that occasion, the Representative of the Chairman of the occasion laid a foundation stone for the proposed, Sen. Kanu Agabi Faculty of Law. The Female Hostel Complex was renamed, Prof. Florence Banku Obi Hall. The final event of the Unveiling Ceremony was the celebration of the retirement of Mrs. Blessing A.O. Tangban, a Board Member, Director of Education at the SteadyFlow Group of Schools and wife of the Chancellor.
