How we got started
City Model University; From Basic To Tertiary Education
AL-USRAH Incorporated, Port-Harcourt: In early 1994, some former members of the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) came together to form a group, which later metamorphosed into Al-Usrah Inc., Port-Harcourt. The main intention was to sensitize the Muslim Community on Islamic awareness. .
Al-Usrahwas formally inaugurated on June 12, 1994 at the Mile 1 Central Mosque, Port-Harcourt, with about 50 foundation members among them, distinguished academics, other professionals and business men. Membership has since grown to over 2,000.
Al-UsrahInc. established the City Model Nursery and Primary School, PortHarcourt in 2000, defining its entry into Nigeria’s educational sector. Al-Usrahhas moved up the education value chain through the establishment of the City Model College, Port-Harcourt in 2004/5. To date, we have successfully graduated a total of 1,350 students from our primary and secondary schools.
In a bid to further contribute towards bridging the deficit gap in tertiary education in Nigeria, Al-Usrahdeemed it fit a natural course of action to broaden its contribution at university level through the establishment of City Model University. This provides an opportunity to complete the nurturing process of the young minds going through the primary and secondary structures already have running.
