Professor Atayero Urges New ALDC Graduates to make Impact
The Vice-Chancellor, Covenant, Professor AAA. Atayero, has tasked new graduates of the University’s African Leadership Development Centre (ALDC) with the responsibility of impacting their environment to justify their new status as leaders.
Professor Atayero gave the counsel recently at an Emergence Ceremony organised by the ALDC for the graduands. The event, hosted by the ALDC Director, Professor Aize Obayan, saw the participants receive Leadership Development Certificate from the Vice-Chancellor.
The Vice-Chancellor, who enjoined the graduating students to be certain that they had moved into a brand-new league in the game of life, stated that Covenant, with her own brand of leadership, was totally different from what the graduands knew before commencing the training. He advised them to be confident henceforth as their status had changed.
Professor Atayero pointed out that Covenant’s status as the best University in West Africa should make the graduands confident and proud to be called products of the University. He added that the emergence of the new leaders from a University committed to raising a new generation of leaders, had further moved the University closer to her goal.
Earlier in her remarks, the Director, ALDC, Professor Aize Obayan, appreciated the Chancellor, Dr. David O. Oyedepo as well as the University Management for their support towards the realisation of the goals of the Centre.
She advised the graduands to be conscious of their new status as world changers. According to Professor Obayan, the graduands should carry their certificate with pride, having the consciousness that any certificate from Covenant is world-class.
She pointed out that the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Atayero, other key officers of the University as well as individuals who were making marks in diverse areas of life, were graduates of the ALDC, which was a testament to the efficacy of the products of the Centre.
