CU-CDIIC Embarks on Environmental Campaign to Celebrate Chancellor, Nigeria
It was not a time for speech making, but an occasion for promoting the virtues of cleanliness and greener environment for healthy living. This was what prompted the Community Development Impact Initiative Committee of the University (CDIIC) to initiate a drainage clearing exercise over the weekend.
The event was part of activities lined up to celebrate the 62nd birthday of the Chancellor of Covenant University, Dr. David Oyedepo and to commemorate the nation’s 56th Independence Day Celebration.
The sanitation programme which attracted members of CDIIC, representatives of Parks and Garden and the Campus Keepers entails clearing and evacuation of major drainage systems in the University, with the major point of interest being the drainage stretch between the University’s Cafeteria 2, Sports Centre and the Engineering Wing.
Member of the University’s Campus Keeping unit and Parks and Garden were overjoyed and ecstatic having staff and faculty working side by side with them, in a terrain that has been the domain of the cleaners. They said that apart from the cleanliness and stench free environment the exercise will bring, it has helped them have a new perspective to their assignment and reinforce their commitment to work.
Some students who passed by were bewildered that their tutors and administrator were involved in such activity, taking into consideration that the drainage in question was very filthy and almost totally blocked.
The drainage cleaning exercise was CU-CDIIC’s contribution to the pool of activities executed by the HOPE Foundation of the Alumni base under the platform of David Oyedepo’s Day Of Service (DODOS 2016).
