While making his welcome remarks, the Organizer of the event, in the person of Mr. M.A. Obiola, emphasized that such prestigious awards and recognitions could only be issued to the most outstanding schools. “The event is aimed at celebrating heroes in Education and Changemakers,” he stated.

Oyedepo, for providing an enabling platform that stimulates a great learning context. He reiterated, "Covenant University is God-founded, God-funded and God is equally running the University; no wonder it’s the best of the best. To Him alone be all the glory!"

This award has gone on to join the plethora of awards the University has amassed over the years via the divine mandate and leading of God.
