11th Convocation ceremony of Covenant University: 157 Bags First Class as Covenant University Graduates 1,495 Students
The 11th Convocation ceremony of Covenant University (CU), Ota which took place last weekend saw a total of 1,495 students receive various degree certificates.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Charles Ayo, said that 157 of the graduating students bagged First Class Degree.
Reeling out the set goals and the seemingly limitless awards earned by the university, Professor Ayo said the milestones recorded by the university are so profound such that “with a deep sense of modesty, we can walk with our heads high as the best in Africa as faculty, staff and students of Covenant University”.
He expressed gratitude to the Chancellor Dr. David O. Oyedepo; the Vice-President, Education, Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo; and members of the Board of Regents for being there for the university all the time.
While congratulating the graduands, Professor Ayo urged them to be mindful of their identity.
“No doubt you have fought a good fight; you have resisted all temptations that would have denied you of this prestigious crown. However, be mindful of your identity, because a lot of persons desires to see what you have seen and hear what you have heard. Eagles don’t flop, they soar, be mindful of the company you keep. You will not fail destiny,” he said.
Speaking earlier, with the Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo, urged members of the graduating class of 2015/2016 to eschew pride in all their undertakings wherever they may find themselves after bagging their certificates.
