I must say this; Governors have come to pick their children from our campus. The daughter of our first Vice-Chancellor was rusticated from the University for one year, my adopted son was thrown out for one year at Covenant, so there is no white cow in the system and that makes everybody shake and fear.
If I must mention it, one of our former Presidents had a relation that had a son rusticated and called me, I said I am sorry, I do not get involved, please talk to the Vice-Chancellor. He said, "Can I have his number?", I said no and we are still friends. Because the moment you make rules and you abide by the rules yourself, everybody is forced to follow, and that is what we are trying to do.
We are in dire need of leaders in our country and we will be wishing till death until we start raising the kind of leaders we want by taking them through the principle of this kind of training so that they can be there to effect changes.
These were the words of Bishop David Oyedepo, founder and presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide (A.K.A Winners' Chapel), founder of Covenant University and Chancellor of Landmark University. He was reported to be responding to a question from an interviewer on how he "plans to sustain the seven Core Values of Spirituality, Possibility Mentality, Capacity Building, Integrity, Responsibility, Diligence and Sacrifice values in a changing environment that university education is facing with strong regulatory environment under which universities operate."
The clergyman certainly gave a profound response, yea?
What's your take on setting an example with his ward and that of top government officials?
