A student of Covenant University has called out the founder, Bishop Oyedepo, and the school management as a whole over unfair treatment and deceit.
In line with the state government’s guidelines on school reopening, all students are to be tested for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) before being allowed on the premises. Unfortunately, the University management failed to put this in place.
According to a student simply identified as Tayurn on Twitter, the school carried out pregnancy and drug tests, instead of the COVID-19 test. Also, a member of staff stated that the Covid-19 test is not necessary because “Papa (Oyedepo) is praying” for them.
Tayurn accused the school management of lying to their parents by assuring them of their safety amidst the pandemic.
“COVENANT UNIVERSITY IS NOT DOING COVID-19 TEST FOR STUDENTS! THEY LIED TO OUR PARENTS. THEY ARE ONLY DOING PREGNANCY AND DRUG TEST! I RESUMED TODAY AND ALL THEY DID WAS TAKE MY URINE AND BLOOD SAMPLE.
“@OGSGOfficial PLEASE HELP! I AM SCARED TO MY WITS! RETWEET WHEN YOU SEE THIS
“One of the staffs even said that if any of us is infected, that we should not worry that papa is praying. That we should forget COVID-19.
“And to top it all, in the hostels, we are FOUR in a room! FOUR! No difference from every other semester before COVID-19” Tayurn wrote.
