CHANCELLOR CHARGES MATRICULATING STUDENTS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR MOULD OF TRAINING
The Chancellor and Chairman, Landmark University, Dr David Oyedepo has charged the matriculating students of Landmark University to take advantage of the mould of training of the University which was designed to raise highly skilled and productive graduates who will drive solution with passion for the nation and the continent of Africa. He made this known in his matriculation lecture titled ‘What Is Unique about Landmark University’ during the 11th Undergraduate and 3rd Postgraduate matriculation ceremonies in the University on Friday, 19th March 2021.
The Chancellor, who was represented by the Secretary, Board of Regents, Barr. Temidayo Eseyin, noted that the University’s mould of training is practicable and had been validated by the success stories of the University’s alumni. Speaking further on the mould of training, the Chancellor said that it was set to achieve the threefold mandate of the University which are to “raise a new generation of leaders through a qualitative and life-applicable training system that focuses on value and skill development; to raise a new generation of leaders through a broad-based qualitative education built on sound biblical principles culminating in the birth of pathfinders, pacesetters and trailblazers and to raise a new generation of leaders who shall redeem the battered image of the black race and restore her lost glory as this army of reformers begin to build the old waste, repair the wasted cities and raise the desolation of many generations.”
Having identified food insecurity as the major challenge of the entire world which requires urgent attention, the Chancellor, therefore, reiterated the commitment of the University to ensuring that young people see the great opportunities inherent in agripreneurship and those who know how to eat must learn how to farm. He revealed that the University had set machinery in motion towards realising the agrarian vision. He noted that irrespective of their course of study, all students are expected to go through a diploma programme in agripreneurship.
Dr Oyedepo, therefore, appreciated the parents and guardians of the students for choosing to give their wards access to the best form of education available in the country today.
Earlier in his opening remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju had appreciated the proprietor base for its support which has culminated in the unassailable strides of the University over the last ten years of its existence.
He said, “We deeply appreciate the Chancellor and Chairman, Board of Regents, Landmark University, Dr David Oyedepo, and the Board for providing the University remarkable facilities that have attracted among others this new set of fresh students (778 Undergraduate & 110 Postgraduate) being matriculated today.
“Landmark is progressing by leaps and bounds, striding forward under the visionary motivation and proprietor base inspiration to strike the target of global limelight of relevance.”
He further revealed some of the landmark achievements of the university which included among others its 9th position in the 2021 webometric ranking of Nigerian universities.
The Registrar, Miss Fola Oyinloye and the Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor Charity Aremu led the administration and signing of matriculation covenant for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The students made the covenant with great enthusiasm and excitement to uphold the tenets and reputation of the university.
