Adebayo said that the institution, on a rescue mission in education, had determined to raise a new generation of leaders that would restore the lost glory of the black race.

“In just two decades of its existence, Covenant University has become a leading world-class university and the best higher education destination for students in Africa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition, Covenant University emerged as the best university out of the 111 private universities in Nigeria by the Prestige Nigeria Education,” he said.

 

 

 

 

 

Also speaking, the Chancellor of the Institution, Dr. David Oyedepo, urged the graduands to be productive and take responsibility in order not to end as liabilities.

Oyedepo said that everyone was absolutely responsible for their outcome in life, as responsibility was the price of greatness.

“Life begins with a vision, no one arrived at a future he or she does not prepare for. It is time to wake up and take responsibility early because commitment to one’s vision is what is called responsibility,” he said.

 

 

 

 

 

The chancellor implored parents to allow their children to take responsibility so that they would not end up as liabilities in life.

Earlier, the Registrar of the Institution, Dr. Regina Tobi-David, said the graduands have been transformed through the principles and core values of the institution to make an impact and mark in their immediate society.

“The institution has raised a new set of Eagles to develop their world and rewrite the history of black race,” she said.
