Stop Press: #fundLAUTECH Team Visits The Ooni of Ife
The #fundLAUTECH team paid a courtesy call on the Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, The Arole Oodua, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II at his palace at Ile-Ife today.
Led by the Chief Initiator, Bayo Adeyinka, the team presented an elaborate proposal on the #fundLAUTECH initiative to His Imperial Majesty and highlighted the short term and long term objectives. The #fundLAUTECH project team had 3 major requests:
1. To seek royal endorsement for the initiative.
2. To seek His Imperial Majesty’s intervention in the ongoing crisis in LAUTECH.
3. To seek his consent as the Chairman of the Governing Board of the #fundLAUTECH initiative.
His Imperial Majesty who was visibly impressed by the presentation pledged a donation of N500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand Naira Only) to the project and issued a cheque of N250,000 to affirm his commitment. This was sequel to the information provided on the long term objectives of the initiative and the potential impact on the University. His Imperial Majesty further assured the team that he was in consultation with the Visitors to Lautech and assured that the current impasse would soon be a thing of the past. Furthermore, the team’s proposal that His Imperial Majesty should graciously superintendent the Board governing the project as Chairman received royal approval.
In his words, Kabiyesi said ‘history will never forget the initiators of this project’. In attendance were other members of the #fundLAUTECH team: Sola Kolawole, Dr Saheed Adetunbi, Ropo Egbeleke and Olatunde Ajayi-Ope.
We are grateful for this royal endorsement and donation and we will strive to justify the trust reposed in us.
Long live Kabiyesi, the Ooni of Ife, Arole Oodua.
