Covenant University’s Faculty, Staff Charged on Commitment as Omega Semester Begins
Faculty and Staff of Covenant University have been charged to be more committed to their various assignments for outstanding accomplishment as the University resumed for the Omega (Second) Semester of the 2015/2016 Academic Session.
The Chaplain of the University, Pastor Charles Ihekwaba gave the charge while speaking on ‘Commitment’ at the Resumption Assembly on Monday, January 4, 2016 to usher in the new semester. “Every outstanding accomplishment is traceable to commitment”, he said.
Pastor Ihekwaba explained further that the level of commitment would define the extent of accomplishments. He added that work is a must for anything to work. “Nothing enhances worth like work. It takes productive lifestyle to enhance our worth. Success is not transferable; it takes personal responsibility to be successful.”
The University Chaplain encouraged everyone to sustain the tempo of the God factor that makes Covenant University outstanding among other universities in the country. He also advised everyone to see challenges as opportunity for research.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, while welcoming everyone to the New Year and Semester, advised that they should exhibit the “Joy of a New Beginning,” stressing that they should forget the past and move forward.
Professor Ayo noted that the year is symbolic in many respect as it marks the fourth year of running with the ‘Vision 10:2022’. He requested for a great improvement in the area of research and entrepreneurial development in order to compete with other Ivy League universities.
“The University is mindful of your labour of love and I pray that the Lord will reward everyone bountifully”, Professor Ayo prayed.
The Faculty and Staff in attendance also thanked God for His faithfulness and fulfillment of prophecy in the year 2015 and prayed for new levels for the University.
