The Chancellor of Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State, Dr. David Oyedepo, says he will build a world-class university to compete favorably with such other universities.

Oyedepo said this on Thursday at Ota, Ogun State, at the 19th Founder’s Day celebration of Covenant University.

He said the institution would provide the enabling environment for quality education to thrive so that a new generation of leaders could be raised to proffer solutions to nations’ challenges.

He attributed the successful execution of developmental projects that could aid teaching in the university to the grace of God.

The chancellor said the institution began operations on October 21, 2002, with nothing, stressing that: “but with the grace of God, which we did not take for granted, the institution is already on the ground and flourishing.

“Ingratitude leads to destruction because gratitude is a requirement for change of position,’’ he said.

Oyedepo said without God, the university would not have been able to achieve its remarkable development.

“The more glory we give to God, the more grace He is releasing because by strength shall no man prevail,’’ he said.

The chancellor, who described God as awesome, noted that the institution never experienced setbacks in its operations.

In his remarks, the vice-chancellor of the university, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, said it was training expert thinkers and technocrats that would restore the dignity of the Black race.

Adebayo said the entry of Covenant University into Nigeria’s educational landscape marked the battles of revolution in Africa’s educational system.

He said the university had become one of the best five leading universities in the country and 15th in Africa.

“The institution has seen the fingers of God and amazing transformation and aspirations of the dignity of the Black race,’’ he said.
