Landmark University female students have been advised to eschew every form of sexual immorality irrespective of the seeming social decadence and peer pressure in the society. The advice came during the special “Valentine’s Day Girl’s Timeout” organized by the University Chaplaincy in collaboration with the Management on Monday 14th February 2022. 

Leading other speakers at the gathering, the acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charity Aremu passionately took the participants through the topic “To excel – stay away from sex”. During her presentation, Professor Aremu emphasized that sexual intercourse is not a way to show affection to the opposite sex. “Watch your emotions and identify who you are. Deny yourself of certain things that could prevent you from pursuing academic excellence because when you lose focus, you attract unwanted friends. Disagree and abstain from sexual immoralities, ungodliness and worldly passion as you try to live by self-control. Surrender to God’s guidance and protection all through, avoid tempting situations and consider the consequences of your actions”, she taught. The acting VC encouraged the girls to live up to expectations by building a relationship with God, being Christ ambassadors inside and outside the University. She then identified building confidence, being good example and having less stress as some of the benefits of abstaining from pre-marital sex. 

Also addressing the Queens, the Registrar, Miss Fola Oyinloye, who spoke on the topic “Define your Relationship or it will Define You”, gracefully mentored them on the need to build confidence, charisma and self-worth. According to her, those who do not define themselves would be defined by others which may not be palatable. “Be your own cheerleader, set boundaries and never allow others to do that for you because it won’t be in your favour. If you don’t draw boundaries between yourself and the opposite sex, you are likely to get hurt”. Miss Fola Oyinloye enjoined them to ask questions for clarity and be purposeful and minding the way they dress. “Carry yourself with grace; exposing your nakedness is never fashionable, you are only defining yourself. Dressing should be modest, speak royalty and self-worth”, she enthused further.  

Wife of the University Secretary, Deaconess Itohan Judith Aghahuwa in her presentation on “How to Avoid Distractions”, took her anchor scripture from Philippians 3:14 where she revealed the benefits of staying focused as a University student. Mrs Aghahuwa who shared some nuggets on ways to stay focused urged participants to make serving God a priority, work on their minds, choose friends wisely, be good to people, avoid envy and comparison and finally live a joyful life. 

Other facilitators included the wife of the University Chaplain, Deaconess Oluwakemi Oluwatimileyin and the Matron Landmark University Health Centre, Mrs Christy Ndako who spoke on “Don’t awake love – wait till after school,” and “Health Cleanliness for Ladies” while taking the students through biblical ways of living a fulfilled life spiritually, academically and mentally. 

The Special Valentine’s Day programme organized by the Chaplaincy featured sessions of presentations, choreography, dance and a video show on effects of distractions among others.
