The Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH), Osara is a State Government owned University in Nigeria. It was established on 10th November 2020. Its establishment aims to give effect to the Nation’s drive for much-needed self-reliance in Science, Engineering, and Technology.
Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH) Osara is the brainchild of His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, The Executive Governor of Kogi State. The dream came to be out of the burning desire to relieve citizens of Kogi Stateof the recurrent ordeal of their admissions into Nigerian Universities; thus providing secondary school leavers of the State opportunities to pursue careers in science and technology related specializations. Stories of Kogi State indigenes scoring impressively highmarks in UTME, yet finding it difficult to secure admissions into medicine, engineering,pharmacy, and a host of other professional programme have become commonplace and increasingly traumatising. The search for opportunities to assuage this annual nerve-wrackingexperience, still relying on the limited admission space in the tertiary institutions of the State and the country in general had become a mere mirage. The establishment of CUSTECH represents the ultimate in Kogi State government’s resolve to widen the spectrum of opportunities for the younger generation to meet the challenges of the future, achieve selfactualisation and maximally contribute their quota to national development and beyond. Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH), Osara a State owned university in Kogi State Nigeria was established as the 51st State University in Nigeria on the 10th November, 2020. It is located along Okene- Kabba Road about 19km from Lokoja.
