About Us


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 State who are familiar with the mode of admission into Nigerian Universities; such as secondary school leavers of the state yearning for opportunities to pursue careers in science and technology related specialisations. Stories of Kogi indigenes scoring impressively high marks 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-wracking experience, still relying on the existing facilities in 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 self-actualisation and maximally contribute their quota to national development and beyond.Confluence University of Science and Technology Osara a state owned university in Kogi State Nigeria was established on the 10th November, 2020.
