Akokites who are planning to relocate to Canada – the world’s second largest country – and wondering how they will stay in touch with the Alumni have every cause to rejoice as the UNILAG Alumni Canada Chapter will soon become operational.
This good news was revealed by the Chairman, UNILAG Alumni North America (US & Canada) chapter, Mrs. Abimbola Omotoso during a courtesy call to the National President (Worldwide), Dr. John Momoh, OON at the Alumni secretariat earlier today (Wednesday, April 6th).
Mrs Omotoso, who doubles as the National Chairman, Unilag 89-91 Set, was in company of the Treasurer, Unilag Alumni North America Chapter, Mr. Ayọ̀ Odetola.
The team was warmly received by the President (Worldwide) himself and ably supported by the National Secretary – Chief Adebisi Ogundipe, National Publicity Secretary – Mrs. Regina Chris-Ogbodo, Executive Secretary – Mrs. Yetunde Abatan and Alumni Relations Manager – Mr. Seun Badejo.
Explaining further on the visit, Mrs. Omotoso informed the National body that the stage is set for the Canada Chapter to commence independent of the North America Chapter and Akokites resident there have mobilized to get the ball rolling, following NEC’s approval for inauguration.
She also revealed that apart from informing the president about Canada branch’s inauguration, they are in Nigeria and specifically in UNILAG to carry out a survey of places and projects that the chapter could contribute its quota to as part of giving back to the university and also engage in a fundraising drive with the view to actualizing the various projects.
An elated Dr Momoh did not mince words at expressing his appreciation and admiration for the North America Chapter, noting that it was one of the most active and vivacious chapters of the Association.
The President commended their efforts and drive while also pledging his unflinching personal support to the various programmes and plans of the chapter as well as the National body’s.
We here say kudos to North America for these beautiful aspirations and wishing them success
