What do you expect from a man of whatever who slapped a lady just because she confessed that she is a witch for Jesus. This man needs to a school of anger management. This is not the right way to discipline students

Come see as we beg Oyedepo oooo the man talk say hin one year na one year. Come see as my cousins father deh vex for Oyedepo. He actually wanted to withdraw the poor boi from the skol but my cousin was already in 300level. I pitied him sha because it really affected hin psychologically. angry angry angry.

CU knows what they are doing. The children of the rich are spoilt brat, disobedient and wayward. CU only create a platform for the remoulding of their life because the parent that are supposed to train them are busy pursuing money.
If a whole VC is talking and some student that are supposed to be listening are loitering around. Is that not disrespect to constituted authorities? They have to be punished.
Lastly, our inability to follow rules and regulations had led to decay that we now witness in our society today. Why would our people get to us, uk and the rest and follow their rules and here at home we do something else. I believe a lot of you that codemn the man must be under 30 because if you are above 30 and you dont know the place of rules and regulation im a society, then am afraid.

i think its clearly stated Covenant is a private Christian university, and as such, any student who wants to attend the place, would have signed an undertaking to show he or she is aware of this fact.


and, its not the only university in nigeria!

Mavor: This is a fu<king joke right? I pity anyone silly enough to go into these "advanced secondary schools". If your parents are forcing you, then take the entrance exam and "deliberately" fail it. This Oyedepo is a joke. And I heard he has anger management issues. Imagine a school where the average man in his church can't attend cos of the high fees, meanwhile that poor man's tithes and offerings is used to build it and buy private jet for the clown. A lot of protestants Christians are easily "mumu-ed" by false prophets, like sheep with bad shepherds.
Lol grin @ deliberately failing the exam.
Re: Covenant University Expels Over 200 Students by Maxymilliano(m): 9:58am On Dec 05, 2012
Oyedepo ought to expel himself as the Chancellor and also extend same to the VC before expelling the poor students. Parent brought their kids and wards to the school because it is faith based and it is expected that high level of discipline and moral rectitude should be the hallmark of such institution.

But the school failed in this aspect greatly, the attention of the dean of studies or the VC is enough to command respect but this was not so from what we read in the original post, it took rain of curses from Oyedepo to subdued the students, what does this say about the school?

zinosleek: I think this is a wrong approach to discipline, they ll only end up producing graduate that can't function in today's world. University is a place where u learn not only book but its a step to prepare u for d outside world where u are to make decision by yourself there discovering who you are. University is a open minded environment, I seriously condemn the disciplinary approach of this school, they

No, i disagree. Such Universities will produce graduates that obey the law. That's what the society needs.

BTW. People that have nothing reasonable to contribute are the ones complaining about what Oyedepo said. Anybody that has a problem with the 'threat' should go hug a transformer. While your mates are praying in the chapel, you are busy loitering and chatting around, are you inviting God's blessing or curse? Abeg make all of una pack well jor.

Osheshe: This issue of expulsion has been on since the inception of the school.

The affected students were not expelled because they were 'loitering' or they refused to attend chapel.

It is the norm for the university to hold a 'departure' service/meeting before students go home for holidays, during which prayers are made and words of advice given.

Some students see it as 'fashionable' to 'stab' these university meetings. As an alumunus of the university, I caught on quite early that it is better to be safe than sorry.

The Chancellor has tendencies to show up at these meetings, and take instant albeit rash decisions. Why sacrifice your future for mere 2 hours of gisting/smoking weed/watching movies?

Anyone who gets enrolled in this University knows what they signed up for. Call it a glorified secondary school or whatever you may, fact remains that I imbibed some positive values during my days there, and left the negative for the school management.

There are a lot of things I never agreed with, and still do not agree with but that is a topic for another day...

On a lighter note, those expelled should see it as a two years hiatus. It has come to my notice that the University has a knack for recalling expelled students after a 2 years period.

Make una enjoy the holiday.
. Things are different now. Bishop Oyedepo said, the time of mercy has passed that once your caught doing anything wrong, you'd get instant expulsion. No warning letteres, suspension and the rest. I can't imagine being in 500L and getting expelled. Kai, no!sad.

[/color][color=#770077] :PWell,that's what you get when u sign up for something and u messed up with the rules! And read ur bible well b4 u make references...if they thought "The curse of the lord" doesn't exist, why did they obey, one person for disobey make we see... That was not anger, that's discipline and that's what the skool stands for!lawlessness! If we hav 3 kids raised with such dicipline in Nigeria, I'm sure this country will move far ahead of where it is presently!

zinosleek: This is the problem I have with most MOG, they are so authoritarian forgetting they are humans like us, if Jesus can sit and dine with sinners and even forgive those that offends Him, then who are you to condemn and place curse on people for expressing their free will. Well I blame the people for allowing someone to trample on them like that. These people that call themselves pastor are just like our political leaders feeling like they are kings and above the law.

Bros read John 2:12-17 the same Jesus Christ was angry and upturn the tables of money changers and business people in the Temple 'cause they turn the house of God to a market. If the student cannot abide by a simple rule of keeping quite while their VC address them but feel like loitering, making noise, hanging out with friends even smoking weed in their hostels then the expulsion serves them right. It is such people that goes into NYSC camps and start having problem with their instructors, simple thing first.
