The story behind the West African Union University, Cotonou was a more impressive one starting from a lowly background as Prestige Tutorial Center, the activities of the small organization that impressed on itself the responsibilities of providing well cut-out tutorial services to young people who were taken national examination such as WAEC-SSCE and JAMB examinations both in Lagos and Owo, Ondo State.

The excellent result earned within a spate of two to three years of this well-nourished tutorial services compelled the organization to seek affiliation with the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Otto-Ijanikin, Lagos as an administrator in-charge of the Dopemu-Agege Satellite Center of the college of education in 2005 with over 100 students.

The excellent performance of the center in the first year of its operation earned it the best coordinating centre for the year 2006. The operation of the organization went more advanced in 2007 when PECOX Global Inv. Ltd was registered and in 2009 Prestige Educational Consultancy Ltd was incorporated as a limited liability company as against its earlier business name status.

PECOX GIL and Prestige Educonsult Ltd are major players in educational consultancy industry in Nigeria, the two companies at one time or the other have affiliations with credible institutions in Nigeria and abroad with credible affiliation with such prestigious schools such as the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile ife, Olabisi Onabanjo University Consult, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Yewa Central College of Education and Pinnacle African University, Porto Novo.

The experiences of affiliation programs instill in the company to further its reach by providing more enabling educational services at tertiary levels as a global player.

A good and successful attempt was made to establish Prestige College of Education, Agege, Lagos, it is worthy of note that this gesture has reached it final approval stage only waiting for the NCCE approval.
In its thought of a global university with a wider reach to the nooks and crannies of Africa and beyond, our searchlight beamed to the Republic of Benin because of her proximity to the Federal Republic of Nigeria where the idea was conceptualized and its francophone nature of French language that is popular within the West African region.

Our (WAUU) intents are among other things to build very conscious young Africans who are determined to turn around the fortune of this great continent for the better, particularly to raise all levels of manpower needs in all sectors of our daily life and enshrine a new value system for the continent by meeting up the challenges of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Poverty Alleviation Programmes across Africa and beyond.

Our operations had since being upgraded to meet all the objectives of the continental goals of better African society where potent leaders are abundantly available to build a more provident, productive, profitable, protected and popular African nations.

WAUU has not only poised to contribute to the technical growth and overall development of the nations of Africa, but to jealously protect her environment and nourish her to a high level of productivity through the churning out of graduates of full baked status who are well in tune with the torch of excellent academic programmes the University has designed to help Africans to reach our deserved places in global mark of honour.

The increasing need towards building a future for the army of young people in Africa who are totally committed to building enduring legacies has placed a greater burden on the promoter of this young university to contribute his quota to the liberation of the continent through affordable, quality education of an international standard.

The yearnings of prospective but brilliant young men and women of African descents have now been answered with the establishment of the West Africa Union University, Cotonou, Republic of Benin to sufficiently acquire hi-tech academic and professional competence in their chosen career with legitimate degree of freedom.

The Philosophy of the University is embedded in its motto "Knowledge is the insurance against ignorance"
