Covenant University Wins Maiden Pan-african Debate Contest In Lagos by TheVictorious(m): 6:46am On Dec 06

Barely three months after emerging champions at the 6th All-Nigeria Universities Debating Championship (ANUDC), Covenant University was again the team to beat at the maiden edition of the Lagos Debate Open, as it won the championship. The Lagos Debate Open (LDO) was hosted by the University of Lagos.


The LDO was a Pan-African elite tournament with teams from all over West Africa participating. Ayafa Tonye Amada, leading other members of the Covenant University team from the Literary and Debate Society (CULDS) had a commanding and comfortable cruise into the final of the championship, pairing with a colleague from another university (as is the practice with Debate Opens) and clearly outmatched other debaters and delegates to cruise into the grand finale and eventually flying the Covenant flag so high as the team to beat.

A pair of the University of Ghana, Legon and University of Calabar came second; while the teams from Universities of Port Harcourt and Lagos (the host) came third and fourth.

The year 2018 has been a season of victories for Covenant University, from core Time Higher Education universities ranking to publications profile, and of course student-based intellectual activities, top of which are topflight literary and debate championships. Just last September, Covenant beat all odds to beat traditional strongholds among public universities of the ANUDC. It shattered the records of ANUDC by being the first private university to win the tournament and went ahead to also produce the best individual debaters and speakers in the championship.

In the literary and debate circuit in Nigeria in which private universities are far behind and thus established a separate private universities debate championship, Covenant has dared the odds by boldly entering into the conventional debate unions and emerging tops. Just last year, a senior faculty of the University who also founded and has led CULDS since 2014, Prof. Sheriff Folarin emerged as the National Vice-President of the ANUDC and chaired the Council of the organization at the last tournament at the University of Ilorin. Recently too, the CULDS launched an anthology of stories, being the first university-based literary society to embark on such laudable intellectual enterprise.

Church has been helping in reducing Nigeria's national embarrassment... From Oyedepo's Covenant to TB Joshua's church which is the place with the highest number of foreigners who also help government generate revenue to EA Adeboye redemption camp with its own powered electricity.....

You are not addressing the main issue. Church as it's practiced in Nigeria by Oyedepo and his like is much like anti christ. They only promote the interest of the elites in every of their establishments. Be it church, schools, canan city, access to them etc.

Those are not the hallmark of what christ admonished them to do. They are rather required to reach out to the needy with what they have and not to provide more and more to the rich. when you build these institutions from the sweat of all and sundry and turned back to fix the rewards and access to those things such that many of those who contributed to it and those who mostly need them cannot afford it, and even make yourself accessible only by the rich, I rather would see you as being anti christ.

Sadly they have a thieving illiterate conman that pretends to be a man of God as its founder. From threatening to unleash the gates of hell on Nigerians if they didn't vote for Jonathan to saying Buhari is a clone.

Foolish punk.

Normally... CU actually prepares like crazy for anything... You have no idea... Very serious school... Every competition they participate in, worse case they win second... From Enactus, to CODET, just name it. A school where almost all the graduating sets in departments like accounting already have ICAN, 19 year old teenagers o.


As for the ones above changing conversation, better go and work and make money to send your kids there. Stay there and be shouting like cheap education is your birth right, ku ku go and protest at Havard gate that you want cheap education... Illiterates.

Brutal truth. Instead of defending poverty, have the mentality to generate wealth. The world is leaving us behind to crab it out at the bottom of the barrel. Mediocrity is the new ideal in Nigeria. I will definitely be investing in supporting the faculty of my profession in CU with infrastructure and scholarships in my lifetime. They are a determined, serious bunch.
