We are Where we are as A Result of the Multi-Faceted Grace of God at Work -Chancellor

The Chancellor of Covenant University, Dr. David O. Oyedepo, has asserted that Covenant University, being God's own University, has been established, sustained, and achieved incredible feats by God's multi-faceted grace.

He made this assertion while delivering his message at the 19th Founder's Day Anniversary Special Assembly of the University in Ota, Ogun State. "We must beware of the cost of ingratitude as a university. Every breakthrough is a product of God's hand at work behind the scene," he stated

Addressing the outgoing students, he charged them, "Please note that you are in your age of discovery; there are things that you may never be able to receive after now. So grab every truth that has come to you all through your stay at Covenant University. Treasure these last moments because there are things you would need as a companion in your journey."

The Chancellor explained that by the grace of God, and the mystery of thanksgiving and appreciation, Covenant University has never recorded lack or borrowed in the execution of projects since inception. "Covenant University can never go down as long as we continue to give glory to God. Covenant University is taking the lead amongst universities established decades before her," he said

 Earlier in his remarks, the Pro-Chancellor, Bishop David Abioye, appreciated God for His hand that is obviously upon the University in unmistakable dimensions, stating that what is at work in Covenant University is divine enablement.

"When any man begins to think of his sufficiency, God turns him into an element of deficiency. We are thanking God for his efficiency amongst us to prevent deficiency," Abioye enthused

In his opening remarks at the beginning of the event, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abiodun Adebayo, expressed his joy and excitement in witnessing another historic feat at the 19th Founder's Day of Covenant University. He stated that the entry of Covenant into the Nigerian education landscape marked the birth of a revolution in Africa's education industry to provide a life-applicable and life-transforming education system.

According to Adebayo, "The University's vision to raise a new generation of leaders and her departure philosophy is the hallmark of our uniqueness in the higher education industry. Over the years, God has been gracious to the University by availing it with the astute visionary leadership of the Chancellor, Dr. David O. Oyedepo, the VP, Education, Pst (Mrs.) Faith Oyedepo, the Pro-Chancellor, Bishop David Abioye, and members of the Board of Regents."

"Through the Board's guidance, Covenant University has become a leading world-class university within a short period and is the pride of Africa. The University's pedagogy is turning out total-man graduates that are expert thinkers, leader-managers, and hyper-resourceful technocrats in all fields of human endeavour. To the glory of God, Covenant University's robust training model has attracted several laurels and elevated its reputation in the national and international contexts; some of the laurels include Times Higher Education (THE) World Universities Rankings, research grants, and other external validations.

Others at the event include the University Secretary/ Secretary, BoR, Pst Adedeji Owojaiye; Pastor (Mrs.) Mary Abioye; the Registrar, Dr. Olusegun Omidiora; the Chaplain, Pastor Victor Hill and other members of the University Management.
