Vice Chancellor Exhorts Faculty, Staff on Value of Executive Advance
The Vice-Chancellor of Covenant University, Professor AAA. Atayero, has admonished faculty and staff of the great institution not to take the just ended Executive Advance programme as a religious exercise, rather, an equipment for engagement in the new academic session, leading to the advancement of the University’s vision of becoming one of the top 10 universities in the world by the year 2022.
The Vice-Chancellor gave this admonition while making his remarks during the last session of the Executive Advance, which ran from August 22-25, 2017, at the African Leadership Development Centre (ALDC), on the University’s premises in Ota, Ogun State.
He advised all faculty and staff to adhere to the rules and regulations of the University in order to maintain sanity and keep the system running smoothly all through the session. He pointed out the need to develop character, stating that it is a very crucial element in achieving any great feat.
Earlier in his remarks, the Registrar, Dr. Olumuyiwa Oludayo, commended the tremendous quality of all the presentations made pertaining to the diverse operations of the University. He advised faculty and staff not to judge their capabilities by the performance of another person, but take advantage of the executive advance platform to improve themselves and develop competence towards better service delivery.
The Registrar expressed confidence that Covenant University will become one of the top ten universities in the world in no distant time. He buttressed this with the scripture from Philippians 1:6: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
There were presentations by faculty and staff, covering different areas of the University’s operations. The executive advance programme was rounded off with an impartation service presided over by the Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo.
