CU Commemorates Pastor (Mrs.) Faith Oyedepo’s 66th Birthday, Holds 2 Outreaches in Ota

The Covenant University Community rolled out the drums to celebrate the birthday of the wife of the Chancellor, Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo, with a two-in-one event packaged specially to give colour to the special day. The 1st is a Medical Outreach to the people of Obere, Atan community, in Adodo-Ota, Local Government Area of Ogun State, and the other involved reaching out to some indigent people at the Ota General Hospital, whose outstanding medical bills were paid off by the University.

Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo, Vice-President Education, Living Faith Church Worldwide and Pro-Chancellor, Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State, clocked 66 years old on the 5th of February, 2024, and the Medical Outreach the Community, was the University’s way of honouring her and celebrating her impact. A large crowd of people gathered at the venue provided by the community, to be tested for blood sugar, blood pressure, malaria, eye defects/dispensing of reading glasses, and doctors were on hand to clerk patients and prescribe medications, with a pharmacy team, on hand to dispense.

Speaking at the Medical Outreach, the Chair, Covenant University Community Development Impact Initiative Committee, Professor Tayo George, said that as beneficiaries of the good grace of God in the life of the Chancellor, Dr David Oyedepo and his wife, Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo, it was very crucial for the University Management to show gratitude to God on behalf of the Chancellor’s wife, and appreciate God’s compelling faithfulness and mercy in her life.

She pointed out that the celebrant, Pastor (Mrs.) Oyedepo has always been a giver, one who took the well-being of people around her as well as the communities around the University very seriously, and the best gift the management of the institution could offer her is to see to the welfare of citizens around the University. She also encouraged the people in the community to ensure that they live a hygienic life, to forestall diseases feasting on them because a healthy life is akin to a godly life; while appreciating them for their orderliness and for coming out in droves to participate and benefit from the programme, and patiently waiting around for the arrival of the CUDIIC officials.

One of the CUCDIIC medical officials, Pastor Joseph Aliwoh, used the medium to give a health talk to the participants where he explained that everything about a person’s health has to do with the way they live, the food they eat and the amount of rest they give to their bodies to prevent fatigue.

He also emphasized the need to make sure our diets consist of all classes of food and not just ‘solids’ which we feel help to fill our stomachs in Africa, but are basically, a load of carbohydrates.

As part of the line-up of activities for the birthday celebration, the CUCDIIC Chair, Professor Tayo George, also led another team of CUCDIIC members to the General Hospital, Ota, where the medical bills of about five people were paid off.

The Medical Director of Ota General Hospital, Dr. Are Philips, thanked the Living Faith Church and Covenant University officials for always being attentive to the needs of the hospital in the past while soliciting more help as he prayed, that God would continue to bless Pastor (Mrs.) Faith Oyedepo, for this kind gesture and prolong her life.

Covenant University, through its Community Impact group, CUCDIIC, has always taken advantage of special days like the birthdays of the Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo and his wife, Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo, to carry out its community service or social responsibility to people in its environs with medical outreaches, rural electrification, borehole construction, donations of vehicles to the police and navy, as well as many other impact initiatives.
