Bishop Oyedepo

Parents of graduates from Landmark University in Omu-Aran, Kwara State, where Bishop David Oyedepo is the Chancellor, claim that the institution’s management is withholding their children’s call-up letters for the National Youth Service Corps scheme.

The management’s action, they claim, is in response to their children’s absence from a prayer session held to bid them farewell from the institution.

The students were not present when Dr. David Oyedepo came to pray for them, according to one of the parents.

Sir, this issue may not be your business, but, I feel as an affairs analyst, you can add your voice to 200 families who are in pain,” a text message allegedly from one of the parents read.

Our wards graduated from Landmark University, Omu-Aran, owned by Bishop Oyedepo. About 200 graduands were absent when Bishop David Oyedepo came to pray over them and he then instructed that their NYSC call-up letters be withheld.

“Delegates and letters of appeal have been sent with no response until yesterday, when I heard that call-up letters will be released in August 2022.


“It means our children will stay at home with us after graduation till August. This is rather draconian and height of impunity,” another parent said.


Meanwhile, further reports say when contacted, spokesman for Landmark University, Joseph Olajide said that the affected students are faceless and that the parents ought to bring their grievances to the school not the media.
