The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Aize Obayan and other members of the Management team recently had an interactive session with the University’s International Faculty and Staff. The meeting took place at the University’s Guest House.

Professor Obayan described the get-together as a kind of induction and opportunity for the international faculty to meet the management. She said most of them were interviewed on virtual space, but the meeting provides opportunity for physical contact to welcome them back home.

She stated that the Covenant University vision was a global one and as it is stated in the scripture in Isaiah 2: 2- 3:

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the LORD’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.

Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

The Vice-Chancellor also declared that the gathering was part of efforts by the University to make the environment conducive for its faculty and staff. She appreciated them for choosing Covenant University and joining forces with others to drive the vision.

She said what used to be brain drain has turned out to be brain gain and whatever may have been lost to universities abroad is a gain to Covenant University.
