Vice-Chancellor of the LadokeAkintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Professor Olufisayo Ologunde, has commenced efforts at seeking development in academics and infrastructure from well to do individuals for the thirty year old Institution.
Speaking during a visit to renowned Structural Engineer and Alumnus of Leeds University, Engineer Aderemi in Lagos, at the weekend, Ologunde said the era of Government being solely responsible for development
and provision of everything was gone, making it incumbent on individual citizens to contribute their quota.
Leading the University team of Chairman, Institutional Development and Endowment Fund Committee, Dr.Saheed AdetumbiIge and Public Relations
Officer, Mr. OlalekanFadeyi on the trip, he explained that individuals
should begin to write their own epitaph for posterity, so that their good deeds to their communities can be properly documented.
He told Engineer Oseni that, “LAUTECH would be thirty years old in April and we are planning both academic convocation for the award of
degrees and endowment convocation to harvest benefactors of the University for whom we plan to have a Hall of Fame and situate themproperly as eminent partners.
In his response, Engr. Oseni said such an enterprise was worthy and
long overdue. “We should begin to be contributors to the successes of
our Institutions in such a way that no matter how little we have, the progress of our citadels of learning become paramount to us”
He promised to assist LAUTECH, looking at it from both short and long
