CU Alumni Honour Vice Chancellor
Eagles Hope Foundation, one of the outreach arms of the Covenant University Alumni base honoured the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, with a partnership cum appreciation award in recognition of his role as a Patron of the Association.
The visiting team comprised three officials of the Foundation, made up of the Programme /Operations Manager, Mr. Remi Ademiju, the Corper Action Fund Coordinator, Miss Oyinkansola Ige and the Programme Manager, Mr. Adedokun Adeola.
While making the presentation, the leader of the team, Mr. Remi Adeniju, stated that the reason they were at the university to see the Vice-Chancellor was to appreciate him for being a strong pillar of support for them, as a patron.
He stated, “Having a vision such as ours, to become a global non-profit organization committed to influencing social change, we could not have achieved most of our goals over the past years without your support and guidance.”
The award, he said, was just a token to say, “We appreciate your good works and we are privileged to have someone like you as a patron.” Mr. Ademiju also solicited for further assistance, guidance and advice as they expand their activities into new projects and ideas. He explained that prior to this time, the organization had been involved in projects such as the CITY Summer Leadership Camp, with the acronym CITY meaning, ‘Catch & Inspire Them Young’ focused mainly on training young people in secondary schools. However, the new plan is to move up to reaching out to National Youth Service Corps members.
According to him, “The CITY summer Leadership Camp is a leadership development camp targeted at teenagers in the society. The goal of the camp is centred on imbibing leadership and positive values and building sustainable capacity in the lives of teenagers. The 2014 camp was the third edition of CITY Summer Camp and the theme of the camp was ‘The Leadership Revival II’.
