• The Chancellor of Covenant University, Dr. David Oyedepo, last Friday, commissioned a state-of-the-art ICT Centre donated to the university by Diamond Bank PLC.

    Dr. Oyedepo, speaking at the event, reiterated the commitment of the University to home grown solutions to myriad of challenges confronting Africa.

    He decried what he called casual approach to important issues, noting that the University became number one, both in Nigeria and West Africa, because of her commitment to excellence.

    The Chancellor also charged the Managers of both institutions to ensure continuous commitment to excellence that would evolve solutions, thereby meeting the needs of the society.

    In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, noted that the Diamond Bank brought on board many robust ideas that would help in driving the University’s Vision, part of which was the Unified Payment and Identity Card System, as well as the robust Attendance Capturing System.

    Professor Ayo assured that the bank would take the front seat in the forth coming University/Industry Partnership Luncheon geared towards evolving home grown solutions to Africa’s Challenges.

    The Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (GMD/CEO) of the Bank, Mr. Uzoma Dozie, explained that the project was the first to be undertaken by the bank in any part of the country. He added that like education, the banking sector now deals more with information and data than cash in its transactions.

    He also explained that for the bank to execute such projects, it needs institutions of like minds to envision what the bank is trying to achieve. The GMD/CEO, therefore, promised that the bank would be committed to the partnership.

    The Covenant University/Diamond Bank ICT Centre has State-of-the-art e-Library, an Automated Teller Machine Gallery, a Mini-Conference Room and a 48-system e-classroom.
