Only Madonna University Produces Virgins As Graduates – Founder, Fr Edeh

The founder of Madonna University, Nigeria, Reverend Father Emmanuel Edeh, has boasted that female students who enrol in the university as virgins always graduate as virgins because of the high morals instilled in them.

Edeh stated this at the convocation event of the university on Wednesday, while highlighting the university’s focus on morals and discipline.

He also said that when people from abroad come to him seeking to marry a virgin, the only way is to come to Madonna University.

He said, “Madonna is a university where there is no secret cultism, molestation, examination malpractice, no bullying, zero tolerance for hard drugs. A zero tolerance for sexual immorality.

“It is only in this university that is clearly maintained that girls who enter the university as virgins graduate as virgins. They enter our university as virgins and graduate as virgins.

“Tell me any other university in the whole world that can maintain this. That is why people from London, America, England, Germany, when I meet them, they will say Father, we want to marry a girl who is a virgin. And the only way to do that is to come to Madonna University.”

Edeh further highlighted the mandatory on-campus housing for students, adding that both students and lecturers have strict attendance requirements as students with less than 85% attendance and lecturers with less than 100% course coverage face sanctions.

He said, “Madonna University admits students from all walks of life, we don’t discriminate. Madonna University is unique, it is known for high morals and discipline, thus the motto is Decency in Academics and Morals.

“This is why any student who fails to meet the required 85% attendance in any course will not be allowed to sit for the examination. Also, lecturers who fail to cover 100% of their course outline are sanctioned.

“Number 2, 100% residency is offered to all students. That means we don’t allow our students to live in hotels or live in any other place and start coming to the school.

“Our 100 percent boarding system on the university campus enhances effective monitoring, guidance, and counselling, and with all the levels of management to know the students better, for more appropriate guidance.”

Madonna University, founded in 1999, is the first private Catholic university in Nigeria. It also has three campuses in Elele, Rivers State; Okija, Anambra State; and Akpugo; Enugu State.
