An Address by the Vice-Chancellor, Covenant University Professor Aize. O. I. Obayan, on the occasion of the 6th Convocation Ceremony
It was Peter Ducker, the great Management philosopher of the 20th Century who said, the best way to predict the future is to create it. In Covenant University,
In Covenant University, we have continued to work on creative approaches to grow and maintain our consistent drive for relevance and global status and in this academic session, we are pleased to celebrate continuity and advancements as this becomes more evident. The academic session 2010/2011 has been an exciting year as we continued to drive the actualization of the Vision of Covenant University as received by the Chancellor of Covenant University. As a University, we have continued to build on our existing foundations and platform. This academic session has been most validating in the results that abound. Today the 22nd of July 2011, we release our 6th batch of EAGLES – the Class of 2011 in a ceremony aptly tagged “The release of Eagles 2011” We are grateful to God for all He continues to put in place in Covenant University as we celebrate the 1275 Students in various Undergraduate Programmes who are convocating today. This is indeed not just a convocation but a celebration of the continued fulfillment of the Vision that established the University as received by the Chancellor, Dr David Oyedepo of Raising a New Generation of Leaders, a vision that is daily being realized as “Eagles” are released to soar and also join earlier sets of eagles, who are leading their generation to affect their world.
