Covenant University, Ota, Nigeria is a reputable research institution. The University was established fifteen years ago and, in spite of its young age, has been adjudged as the best private university in West Africa. The Covenant University Centre for Research, Innovation and Discovery (CUCRID) is a vibrant and robustly funded Centre that coordinates all research activities of the institution. Presently, Covenant University has an annual research budget of over 2 billion Nigeria naira, providently financed by the proprietor base, the Living Faith Church Worldwide. The university is a members of many international research consortia including the H3Africa and the West African Virus Epidemiology. As a sub-Saharan African plant scientist, I am keenly interested in any intervention that will reduce the scourge of malaria that is ravaging our people. In addition, Dr. Ayanda, Isaac Opeyemi, a member of my research cluster, has a track record in malaria research.
