be dilligent, warning that RUN only awards degree to deserving
The VC spoke during the ninth matriculation of the university.
He said, "You must be courageous, passionate, faithful, diligence and
swift. None of you is a failure; therefore do not act as one. As
divine champions, you must fight the ills of this nation – corruption,
laziness, nepotism, and short-sightedness.
"I want you to remember that in a university system, you hold your
destiny in your hands. What you achieve within the next four years and
beyond is solely determined by you. As a university, we do not
compromise on standards. Our degrees are highly regarded and well
sought after because of the quality of our teaching and are awarded to
those been found worthy both in character and learning."
Calling on parents to support the university to train the students,
Adeyewa advised them against indiscipline.

conduct by its students. RUN is here to teach and prepare you to face
life beyond your youth. I wish to draw your attention to the fact that
you are not here by accident. Necessary trainings have been put
together for you to become the total man and reach the pinnacle life.
"We cannot do it alone. We need you to be willing and ready to learn
and abide by the regulations guiding students conduct on campus. We
also need parents and guardians to work with us in nurturing these
young ones in order to make them role models in the future."
He boasted that the students would graduate within four years, noting
that the school had no course to embark on strike.
"Another advantage here is that we don't strike. Nothing like that
here. It is our fervent desire and earnest expectations that you will
take full advantage of the great opportunity that are afforded you.
From today, you will begin to accomplish goals and desires that would
make you leaders and world changers. You must fight the good fight,
finish your course and keep the faith," he added.
