To further buttress this point, the latest JAMB result again clearly vindicated this preference.

I know you must have been hearing quite a number of amazing testimonies about Covenant University.
Out of the first 10 best students from JAMB, 5 applied to Covenant University.
The number 1 in the nation applied to Covenant University. So Covenant took 5 all the others distributed the remaining over there.
Not one day bribe to nobody under Heaven.
Not one method to cut corners from anywhere. Vessels of honour, you want to be listed? Then, purge yourself of what they do, otherwise, you won’t taste it.
And today again announced the Times Higher Education record Covenant University Number 3 in Nigeria.
This doesn’t have any political, any Nigerian element nothing.
