Speaking at the event to receive the donation, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, expressed the appreciation of the University administration to the group members for their selflessness, stressing that the University needs more groups or individual alumnus to give back to their alma-mater.
Ogunbodede, who continued that many projects had been executed in the University by the alumni, appealed that the University still needs the alumni to do more as most buildings in the University are almost sixty (60) years old thus demanding renovation.
He further seized the opportunity of the event to call on other alumni and stakeholders to come to the aid of the indigent students in the University by putting up a scholarship scheme for them. The leader of the group, Mr. Bola Alaga appreciated the University administration for the good works they have been doing to actualize the dream of the founding fathers of the institution, noting that as alumni group, they felt they should contribute their quota to the development of their alma-mater that made them to be donating drugs to the University’s Health Centre since 2017. He promised that apart from donating drugs they will engage in other projects soon.
