A seasoned scholar and vision-driven administrator par excellence, Professor Adenike Kuku is poised to lift KU to greater heights given her passion for excellence and charismatic character. Since she assumed office, she has come up with a blueprint for taking KU to the next level as a university that is worth its salt in developing human mind, building capacity, producing competitive young graduates, creating an enabling environment for scholars to engage in cutting-edge research, and, above all, building a university instrumental to engineering and driving national and global development initiatives.

Under her administration, the university is using the Learning Management System (LMS) to give online lectures to the students of the institution in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
