It was a gathering of Women in the academia at the Institution’s International Conference Center on Friday 9th November, 2108, as the Faculty Women Advance (FWA) Landmark University’s chapter was inaugurated. 

Faculty Women Advance Fellowship is a group of academic women, with a mission to connect women with their vision and cultivate dynamic leadership quality, as well as to also harness and maximize opportunity for women to explore and exert their influence. FWA was an initiative of the immediate past Vice-Chancellor of Landmark University Professor Aize Obayan when she was the second substantive Vice-Chancellor of Covenant University ten years ago. 

Gracing the epoch making event, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju in his remarks expressed delight to be part of the historic event unfolding which he believes would be impactful and result oriented. Noting the importance of women in the society, the Vice-Chancellor added that the inauguration is dream come true for Women Faculty who have aspired to be part of the testimonies of the group in Covenant University, seeing their inclusion as another opportunity for service to humanity. 

Professor Olayanju who admonished the women to always encourage themselves to make exploits cited some great women in the bible such as Jochebed, Sarah, Esther, Martha and Mary as those who have impacted the world and are to be emulated. He also noted the pedigree, steadfastness and the love of God the Matron of the advance, Pastor Mrs. Faith Oyedepo exhibits as values worth imitating. Professor Olayanju therefore congratulates the Coordinator of Women Faculty Advance, Professor Aize Obayan for her commendable contributions culminating in the inauguration of Landmark University’s chapter of the fellowship.
