Covenant gets New Students' Council Executives
With the conclusion of the screening and selection processes, Covenant University now has a new set of executive members for her Students’ Representative Council. The executive will run the affairs of the student body for the 2020/2021 Academic Session.
Head, Student Engagement, Activities, Leadership and Development (SEALD), Miss Kemi Ayeni, on Monday, February 15, 2021, presented the new council executives to the University Management.
The Registrar, Covenant University, Dr Oluwasegun Omidiora, said that after a proper screening by the Student Affairs and the Chaplaincy, the new set of leaders had been found worthy to steer the students Council’s ship. He said the new leaders would be expected to deliver on the mandate of the students’ body alongside the vision of the University in the academic session.
While adressing the new council executives, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abiodun H. Adebayo, congratulated them on their appointment. He reminded them that leaders were called to serve humanity, not to lord it over people. “You are there to service the need of those God has positioned you to serve, and you will need the spirit of meekness to make the most of this assignment,” he stated.
Professor Adebayo highlighted the importance of learning and relearning, taking into cognizance that great leaders were great learners. “It is expected that in the course of administering your offices, you will keep learning, by staying on your assignment and keeping abreast of new facts,” he added.
He reminded the student leaders that it was their previous service that culminated in their elevation to the position they now occupy. The Vice-Chancellor, while wishing the new set of leaders a successful tenure, prayed that none of them would disappoint God and destiny. He affirmed that the University Management would always work with them as they connect to driving the Vision of Covenant University.
In his remarks, the Chairman, Students' Representative Council, Ezenwanne Ebubechi Emmanuel, said it was a great privilege to be found worthy to serve, sacrifice and give back to the student populace of Covenant.
Ezenwanne said it was important for the executives as student leaders to understand and work towards helping their peers build up academically, spiritually and socially in the quest to become value-adding individuals and work towards building a better society.
