Presiding bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo has urged young people to start small and not put themselves under pressure.
Oyedepo stated this at the maiden convocation of Dominion University, Ibadan, stressing that young people should not despise little beginnings but should keep adding value where necessary.
The clergymen, who prayed for the graduating students, charged them to stay connected to God, and not be influenced by the vices in the society.
He said: “You must have something you are adding as value, this is an investment into the future. There is no investment in adding value that is wasted. Start small, start from somewhere. Every giant is born as a baby. Don’t put yourself under pressure.”
The chancellor Bishop Victor Adelakun said the school is committed to creating a legacy of excellence in education, research and service.
“I encourage each graduating student to carry forward the values of integrity, curiosity and empathy that have been instilled in you during your time at this institution,” he said.
Vice-chancellor of the varsity Prof. Olajide Olorunisola enjoined the graduands to be good ambassadors of the institution.
He said: “We are graduating a total of 96 students who have completed their four-year training in the 11 academic programmes domiciled in the faculties of art, social and management sciences, computer and applied sciences.”
Olorunisola revealed that 22 students out of 96 bagged first class.
