It was a reassuring moment as the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Isaac U. Asuzu, took time off his ever-busy schedule to once again fraternise with organisers and members of Chapel of Transformation (C.O.T), Federal University Oye Ekiti. The Vice-Chancellor who does not hide his love and admiration for God and activities that promote the Kingdom of God, was at the commissioning and dedication of the temporary Secretariat in Oye town.
Receiving the Vice-Chancellor, the Chapel of Transformation Coordinator, Pastor Samuel Osamoka described the facility as a child of necessity. He disclosed that the Secretariat would also serve as a mission house where people are raised for God, as well as a meeting place for members of chapel. Disclosing that the building provides subsidised accommodation for up to ten students, Osamoka thanked the Vice-Chancellor for “coming down to our level to associate with us” and prayed for God’s continued protection over him.
Professor Asuzu commended the Chapel organisers for their “selfless pursuit of human spiritual development” and thanked God for the noble venture. The Vice-Chancellor lamented that many today profess to be Christians but their attitude and activities belie such claims. He therefore prayed that the building be used for activities that glorify God, while charging the organisers to have a primary focus of ensuring that souls are won for Christ.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof. R. A. Omolehin and the University Librarian, Dr. Gboyega Adio accompanied the vice chancellor to the event.
On a similar development, the Chapel of Transformation has concluded its annual Leadership Training Conference aimed at spiritually and psychologically building up the students for an all-round life of excellence. The three-day programme which ran from January 22 to 24 was rounded up with a thanksgiving service, well-attended by both staff and students.Chapel of Transformation is a non-denominational Christian gathering in the two campuses of Oye and Ikole, drawing membership from both staff and student bodies.
