Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State, has inaugurated a Postgraduate Student Council for its School of Postgraduate Studies, after 14 years of establishment of the institution.
Delivering his opening speech at the inauguration ceremony held at the university chapel, the Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor Shalom Chinedu, said the essence of the event cannot be over- emphasized.
“This year makes it the 14th year of the School of Postgraduate Studies, and through the years, we have been able to graduate students on schedule.
“In 2010, we started to accept external students and this year, the fact that 90 percent of our intakes came from outside makes it imperative for effective leadership among students. The caliber of members underscores the importance of the student council”, he said.
The council, Prof Chinedu added, serves as a bridge between the students and the management of Covenant University.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof Taiwo Abioye, who reeled out the names of members of the student council, charged members to remember the university’s core values while carrying out their responsibilities and prayed they do not disappoint themselves.
