Bishop Oyedepo Sends Strong Warning To Covenant University New Students
The Chancellor and Chairman Board of Regents, Covenant University, Dr. David Oyedepo, has tasked Covenant University, Otta, Ogun State, newly admitted students to brace up for the academic learning and mode of training offered at the institution.
In his welcome address at the matriculation ceremony which was held at the University Chapel over the weekend, the Chancellor admonished all parents and guardians to help in ensuring that their sons, daughters and wards align with the training mode at Covenant University, so that they can be listed among the new generation of leaders produced at the university.
He said, “The uniqueness of Covenant University is in her readiness to create the future we desire to bequeath to the next generation through a drastic shift in thinking, values we embrace and actions we take. lt is the mode of training that defines the outcome of the trainee, and we have engaged a mode of training here at Covenant that works, with our products flying and excelling in their professional calling today, showcasing the validity of our mode of training.
“Our training mode has its foundation in our well-defined mandate, ‘To raise a new generation of leaders through a qualitative and life-applicable training system that focuses on value and skill development. Our training is geared towards raising a new generation of leaders, through a broad-based qualitative education built on sound biblical principles culminating in the birth of pathfinders, pacesetters and trailblazers.’
“Our pedagogy programme is tailored ‘to raising a new generation of leaders who will redeem the battered image of the black race and restore her lost glory as this trained army of reformers begin to build the old waste, repair the wasted cities and raise the desolation of many generations,” Dr. Oyedepo said.
He added, “The Covenant Mandate is powered by our founding philosophy of departing from form to skill, knowledge to empowerment, figures to future-building, legalism to realism, points to facts, mathematics to ‘life-matics. As we say here in Covenant, ‘until one is transformed, he cannot reform his environment, society or nation.”
The Pro-Chancellor, Bishop David Abioye charged the fresh students to abide by the institution’s core values of spirituality, integrity, possibility mentality, capacity building, responsibility, diligence and sacrifice, saying all of these would help in the training of each student to attain a productive life.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, welcomed the students, parents and guardians to the 20th Matriculation ceremony and charged the new entrants to be mindful that they are enrolled in the university to receive life-applicable and life-transforming education.
“The University’s Board, Management, Faculty and Staff have covenanted to provide a world-class learning experience, which I hope they will maximize. It is instructive that all matriculants take heed to this wise counsel of our Chancellor, Dr. David O. Oyedepo.
“You are responsible for the outcome of your life. It takes high-level discipline to make high-level achievements,” he stated.
He said the breakdown of admitted students for the 2021/2022 academic session are 1, 807 undergraduate and 123 for postgraduate programmes.
