The University on Thursday, July 12, 2018, on its Twitter handle, decided to celebrate Oloruntobi, popular for her Instagram comedy as one of its graduates who is doing well on social media.
The school tweeted:
Hi, Meet Gloria Oloruntobi @Maraji_ Our Social Media Favorite! Our Eagles have unique talents. Lets throw it back to this special moment.
However, some Nigerians on Twitter have been reacting to the tweet questioning why Covenant University is celebrating Maraji as its social media favourite when she was not allowed to use a mobile phone as an undergraduate in the school.
Some of the criticisms against the tweet is about the University's policy on the use of mobile phone for students, as some argue that an institution that does not allows its students to use mobile phone should not celebrate its alumni that rise to stardom on social media.
Here are some of the tweeter reactions:
Covenant University has got many comedians to celebrate
Maraji is not the only Instagram Celebrity to have graduated from Covenant University.
Emmanuel Edunjobi, popularly known as EmmaohmyGod and Olu Salako aka Boda Wasiu on Instagram developed their comedy talents at Covenant University.
Another comedians, Victor Ebiye and the Big Brother Naija star, DeeOne both also graduated from Covenant University.
