MAPOLY A-level Class of '83 Celebrates 40th Anniversary, Donates Study Materials to Alma Mater

Management of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta has received a donation of some valuable materials from the A-levels Alumni, who were admitted in 1981 and graduated in 1983.

Yemi Ajibola, the Head of Public Relations for the institution, revealed this information in an official statement.

The President/Coordinator of the set, Dr. Oyeyemi Onifade led other colleagues to the Rector's office for the presentation of quality study items to the Polytechnic.

Onifade said, "Ogun State Polytechnic where we graduated 40 years ago has been the centre of our focus and that is why we have come back to say thank you."

"When we were ruminating on what we could do and we discovered a new department of Social Development has just been established which requires some interventions.", he added.

Some of the items donated to enhance the smooth take-off of the Department of Social Development include; 1 UPS (Blue Gate), 1 HP Desktop & Monitor, 2 LED Projectors & Screens, 4 Magnetic Boards, 2 LG 32" Television sets, 1 HP Laser MFP 135a Printer and 4 White Board Marker.

He said, "As the first occupants of this citadel, we had most of the best moments of our lives, had the brightest academic standard and built friendships that lasted forever."

While presenting the materials on behalf of his colleagues, Dr Onifade added, "As a Lecturer in the United Kingdom, I am always bold and proud to say that I am an Alumnus of Ogun State Polytechnic."

In his remarks, the Rector, Dr Adeoye Odedeji, expressed gratitude for the gesture and highlighted the impacts of the donation to their alma mater.

Odedeji disclosed that the newly established Department of Social Work Development is due for resource Inspection and Accreditation by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) but a lack of facilities has been hindering the process.

He said, "You may not understand the timely effect of your donation, because I am yet to respond to the call for resource inspection of the Social Work Development Department by the NBTE due lack of facilities. But now, you have given me the courage to respond."

"What you brought is enough to help secure the accreditation for the Department of Social Work Development", he emphasized.

The Rector, thereafter, called on the respective Alumni of the Polytechnic to emulate their colleagues in giving back for the sustainability of their Alma Mata.

Odedeji, on behalf of the Governing Council, Management, Staff and Students, warmly extended her heartfelt appreciation to the A-Levels 83 set and other alumni bodies who have tolled the path of giving back to the system.
