CU Graduates are Hardworking with good Work Ethics.... Exxon Mobil Engineer
The quality of academic investment, coupled with exposure to innovative technology in driving sound academic excellence and building of the total man by Covenant University has been validated once more by the external context.
Mr. Moses Olaosebikan of Exxon Mobil, in a mail he sent to the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Charles Ayo, recently shared his views on what he considered unique about the quality of graduates from the University.
In his analysis, the same way products of Covenant University are dominating the scholarship scheme for first class graduates initiated by the Federal Government, they are also dominating in other spheres, including that of Exxon Mobil Nigeria.
Mr. Olaosebikan made this known in a felicitation to the Chancellor of the University on his 60th birthday. He stated that apart from the first class graduates of the University being the highest in number selected in the Federal Government’s Presidential Scholarship Scheme (PRESSID), the University’s graduates are also doing great in initiatives embarked upon by Exxon Mobil.
According to him, “I heard four out of every 10 international postgraduate scholarships we recently awarded are from Covenant University. Our recent recruitment brought in a good number of Covenant University engineering graduates out of the lot that applied, and one of them, Adedeji Abe, 1st class Mechanical Engineering, was my direct report; he is an outstanding young man, very hardworking and with good work ethics.”
He declared that his organization hires only the best, through a very transparent, competitive and rigorous process that only the very best can scale through, thus giving no room for mediocre in the system.
Mr. Olaosebikan appreciated the Chancellor and the Management team of the University for the doggedness and commitment to raising new crop of leaders that would fill every facet of the nation’s economy and restore her rightful place in the comity of nations.
He commended the Chancellor for his dogged commitment to nation building. According to him, “If we just have about 500 of Dr. David Oyedepo’s personality in Nigeria, we would not be crawling as a nation.”
