Speaking at the 17th convocation ceremony of the school on Friday, December 6, 2023, Oyedepo, who doubles as the chancellor of the institution, also urged the graduands to be productive and take responsibility in order to avoid becoming liabilities.

“Life begins with a vision, no one arrives at a future he or she does not prepare for.

“It is time to wake up and take responsibility early because commitment to one’s vision is what is called responsibility,” said the revered man of God.
