Olumuyiwa Oludayo
Registrar, Convenant University
Muyiwa is an advocate for leadership development. He has had the privilege of been part of leadership engagements since 1998 when he became the Secretary General at a Teens Church. Born as the first of four children to the family of Oludayo and Ibironke FADUGBA, Muyiwa learnt how to provide leadership and lead by example. The Leadership responsibilities that Muyiwa took on helped him develop skills for leadership effectiveness. He represented his teen’s church, primary school and secondary schools in many competitions where he learnt how to become a team player and contribute to the success of the team. It took Muyiwa 5years after completing his secondary school education to gain admission into the University to study Industrial Relations & Human Resource Management. This seeming setback was going to be a message for influencing thousands of people never to take setbacks as final outcomes of their lives; rather see them as setup for a comeback. Muyiwa was admitted as a pioneer student of Covenant University to study Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management and he has gone on in the same discipline to bag a Ph.D. from the same University. Muyiwa has earned many commendations from students, colleagues, and partners on his performance across the diverse roles taken over his career life. He has served as the Chairman of the Students Council of Covenant University and transited to be the President of the University's Alumni Association. A position he held till 2015 after which he continued to serve as the Chairman of the Associations Board of Trustees. Muyiwa became the Dean of Student Affairs in 2010 at age 29 as he became the youngest member of the University Senate, the highest academic decision making body for the University. He went on to become the Youngest University Registrar in Africa in 2013 when he was appointed the Registrar of his alma mater, Covenant University. Upon completion of his tenure in 2015, he was appointed to serve as the Director at the African Leadership Development Centre of the University where he is responsible for facilitating leadership development programmes for over 4000 people annually
