Mountain Top VC counsels students against vices
The Vice Chancellor, Mountain Top University (MTU), Prof. Elijah Ayolabi, has called on students in different institutions across the country to shun vices and stop engaging in activities that do not bring glory to God and even their family.
Ayolabi made the call at the maiden edition of a variety night programme tagged, ‘Abundant Grace 2.1’, held at the institution’s chapel.
The programme featured musical performances from different gospel groups including, The Asaph Choir, Goshen voices, Divine Symphony Orchestra, Guitar Choir, Holy Flame Dance group, MTU Choir among others.
Speaking on the variety night concept, Ayolabi explained that it was one of the ways the school can reach out to the students, engage their senses and faculties, aside academic activities.
“People expect everything in the university to be about academics, but at the same time, there should be time for students to relax, to unwind and there should be opportunities for them to actually re-energise and be prepared for things ahead,” he said.
Ayolabi urged the students to be focused and committed to their studies, so that at the end of the day, they can look back and say ‘thank you God, we passed through this system.’
He noted that as a faith-based institution that combines academic training with the spiritual disciline, they are meant to properly groom their products to tackle problems and proffer solutions.
The VC disclosed that the event is going to be a yearly programme.
