“Covenant is a University to Watch” – Chancellor
The Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo has stated that Covenant University is a university to watch out for, even has he once again affirmed his belief that the institution would attain the set vision to become one of the 10 world-class universities by the year 2022.
Dr. Oyedepo made the affirmation on Friday, August 5, 2016 at the Wrap-up Session of the week long 2016/2017 Executive Advance for Faculty and Senior Non-Teaching staff.
Speaking on, “Impartation of the Spirit of Excellence,” Dr. Oyedepo noted that he had achieved so much by the grace of God but quickly added that the grace is transferable to as many that desired it. “There is nothing that will match grace,” he stated, adding that, “no matter the effort, it is grace that makes great.”
Impartation, according to him, is the tangible transmission of the power of God through an anointed vessel to others who may be interested. “That is why I know that Covenant University is not just a university, it is a University to watch because, by divine connectivity, the unusual will start happening in our midst,” he stated.
He enjoined faculty and staff to possess a certified thirst and desperation of heart in order to encounter the power of God. He also advised the participants to beware of pride, “No matter where you get to in life, there will always be people ahead of you. There is nothing that erodes man like pride. No proud man can access impartation,” he said.
The Chancellor also appreciated the input and the impact of the last administration, noting that its four years tenure added colour and beauty to the University. He prayed that its members would never lose rewards from God.
Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor AAA. Atayero, noted that the event had been five days of revolution preparing everyone for the task ahead. He said that the Vision is a very tall one, “If viewed with the eye of man but if viewed from the point of the Most High God, it is very short.”
The Vice-Chancellor also presented the new leadership at the College and the Departmental levels to the Chancellor and the University community for prayer and grace to run the race.
