Udensi, who is also the deputy vice chancellor, administration, in his remarks, said the reason for organising the covenant service was to draw the staff and students of the institution nearer to God, and also to pray to pray to God to put an end to the untimely deaths which have rocked the institution recently. The wife of the vice chancellor, Professor Stella Ogbuagu, read out the first Bible reading, while the Registrar, Dr E.N. Iheukwumere and the Students’ Union president, Israel Ahaemfuna, read the second and third Bible readings respectively.

The guest preacher at the event, Bishop Ephraim Ikeakor, preached extensively on the theme, while also encouraging the students to be more prayerful.

Akpanta in making the covenant service worthwhile.
