The Chancellor of Covenant University, Ota, Ogun, Dr. David Oyedepo, has advised youths to imbibe discipline to actualize their goals.
Oyedepo gave the advice during the 21st Matriculation ceremony for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on Friday in Ota.
He noted that access to the top was always at the cost of high-level discipline, among others.
The chancellor explained that the price paid for discipline may be costly, but the end result was priceless.
“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 hard work, discipline, and sacrifice sown today.
“What one makes of his time today would determine the outcome that awaits him tomorrow,” said Oyedepo.
He implored the youth to recognize that time was an asset of inestimable value and a hidden treasure, saying the worth of a man’s time defined the wealth of his life.
The institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, said a total of 2, 216 students, which comprised 116 postgraduates, were matriculated for the 2020/2023 academic session.
He described the institution as a citadel of academic excellence where the new generation of leaders was molded and trained to restore the lost glory of the black race.
“The products of covenant university are the most employable graduates in Nigeria,” he said.
He added 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.
