Group Names Convenant University As Best Performing University
The Centre for Democratic Governance in Africa (CDGA) has named Covenant University as the best performing higher institution in Nigeria for 2013.
At the award ceremony, Chairman of the Centre, Dafe Okpocha said the university’s emulation of good governance has made it outstanding.
“This centre believes in the practice of good governance and sees to the development of the country. Our aim as an organisation is to preach good governance to Africa and Nigeria in particular. The education environment is not left out of these. If it is not practised in this sector the country is going nowhere,” he noted.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Charles Ayo, while receiving the award said, “Covenant is the leading university both in academic standard and in Godly standard.”
“Our drive is to be among the leading Christian mission universities in Africa in the next 10 years. We will consider the university as a failure, if our graduates join the bandwagon of the unemployed looking for job.”
He explained that the University was founded to breed a unique class of people who will make Nigeria a better place.
