The General Overseer of Living Faith Chapel, a.k.a Winners Chapel, and Chancellor of Covenant University, Bishop David Oyedepo, has advised youths to imbibe discipline to actualise their goals.
News Agency of Nigeria reported that Oyedepo gave the advice during the 21st Matriculation ceremony for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on Friday, Sango-Ota, Ogun state.
He noted that access to the top was always at a cost of high-level discipline, explaining that the price paid for discipline may be costly, but the end result is priceless.
He said, “No one would ever be any more accomplished in his pursuit than his self-discipline.
“What we find in our tomorrow are simply the fruits of the seed of hardwork, discipline and sacrifice sown today.
“What one makes of his time today would determine the outcome that awaits him tomorrow”.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, disclosed that a total of 2, 216 students, which comprised 116 post graduates, were matriculated for the 2020/2023 academic session.
Adebayo described the institution as a citadel of academic excellence where new generation of leaders were molded and trained to restore the lost glory of the black race.
While enumerating the institution’s accolades, he mentioned that the university was recently adjudged the leading research institution in Business and Economics, Social Sciences, Computer Science, Engineering and physical Science by the Times Higher Education.
“The products of covenant university are the most employable graduates in Nigeria,” he added.
