By putting in place various evaluation metrics. ABUAD’s access monitoring framework with respect to relevant inputs indicate that about 25% of ABUAD’s intake cohort in 2019 are from low household incomes (below N200,000 a year). This increased to 28.4% in 2020. In same manner, following the trend, the figure has increased to 32% in 2021. However, in 2022, there is an upsurge in the percentage due to the injection of more funds by the Afe Babalola Foundation owned by the Founder/Chancellor, Aare Afe Babalola SAN to support in providing access to affordable education by the low income household thereby making access to be increased to 88% in 2022. His avowed determination is to further increase it to over 100% in 2023.
