Covenant University students have taken to social media to call out Bishop Oyedepo and the school management for “Lying to their parents” and treating them unfairly.
The students accused the school of leaving them and their luggage under the rain to carry out pregnancy and drug test, instead of COVID-19 test.
They also alleged that a member of staff said Covid-19 test is not necessary because “Papa (Oyedepo) is praying” for them.
One of the students took to Twitter and wrote:
“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”
