Ota - The Chancellor of Covenant University, Ota, Ogun state, Dr David Oyedepo, says he will build a world-class university to compete favourably with other universities.
Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, said this on Thursday, October 21 at the 19th Founder’s Day celebration of the university.
He said that 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.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 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 in 2002 with nothing, stressing that:
“But with the grace of God, which we did not take for granted, the institution is already on ground and flourishing.’’
Oyedepo said that 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.’’
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, Professor 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.
Bishop Oyedepo replies his critics
In an earlier report by Legit.ng, Bishop Oyedepo responded to those telling him to build factories instead of more churches.
He asked his critics if anyone collected money from them for the projects.
According to him, since nobody asked them to bring money, the critics should keep quiet and face their jobs.
