Achievers Continuous Education Centre was initially a family business of Hon. Dr. Bode Ayorinde. The business was formally registered in 1994 as a private limited liability company. However, the decision to expand the scope of the Educational Institute towards the establishment of a private University caused the family to invite notable personalities to join the company. The offer, through a private placement attracted important personalities like Chief Mrs. Olutoyin Olakunri, Sen. T.O Olupitan, Late Sen Kolawole, Professors and Senior Academics to subscribe to the shares. In all, 90 shareholders emerged and became the owners of the University.
Dr. Bode Ayorinde, a secretary, a lawyer, a banker and an educationist obtained the Private University application form from the National Universities Commission (NUC) in October 2003. After 48 months of painstaking effort, the Federal Executive Council approved the University on 24th October, 2007 on the recommendation of the NUC, which eventually issued the license to operate as a private University on 11th December, 2007. The University officially commenced academic activities on 2nd April, 2008.
