EGBE OMO IBILE IGBOMINA VISITS LANDMARK UNIVERSITY HAILS CHANCELLOR OVER REMARKABLE SUPPORT
On Tuesday, 23rd May 2023, Landmark University Management ably led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charity Aremu received the National Executives of the Egbe Omo Ibile Igbomina on a courtesy visit.
The Society’s leaders who were led by their President Elder G. Y. Jimoh appreciated the Chancellor, Dr David Oyedepo immensely for his love for his people which has been demonstrated through his massive support for the progressive development of the land. The president noted that they were not only acknowledging his major contribution towards the establishment of the Igbomina FM Radio and the bus he singlehandedly donated to the society, but most significantly the location of a University in the locale. He expressed how happy they are to be associated with the University because it was founded in Igbomina land which comprises 3 local governments of Kwara State, namely Irepodun, Ifelodun and Isin. He said that the pacesetting gesture has contributed to the development of the land in no small measure, noting employment opportunities, socioeconomic transformation, population growth, and provision of social amenities among others. Having acknowledged that the existence of the University has opened the door for other higher institutions in the area, the President expressed confidence that Igbomina land has a future and the expectation that other Igbomina sons and daughters will continue along the same path as Dr David Oyedepo. They, therefore, made a passionate appeal for more representation of Igbomina indigenes in the staff population of the University as the land is blessed with adequate human resources and increase the impact of the University’s corporate social responsibility in the land among other requests.
In her response, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charity Aremu welcomed the leaders and assured them of relating their appreciation and goodwill message to the Chancellor. She then highlighted the efforts of the University in fulfilling the community impact mandate of the University as it is integral to the sustainability and growth of the University in the comity of world-class institutions. She also noted the healthy relationship that exists between the University and the immediate host community and environs as one of the effects of the impact of the University in the area. While emphasizing the University’s penchant for global best practices, she noted that recruitment processes in the University had been healthy, giving the percentage of Igbomina indigenes in the workforce. In addition, the Vice-Chancellor noted that a good number of Igbomina sons and daughters who are currently working in the University hold strategic academic and administrative positions in the University.
In attendance were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Ojediran; the Registrar, Mr Olushola Oyinloye; the Director of Finance, Mr Christopher Fatiregun; and the Director of Landmark University Centre for Research, Innovation and Discoveries, Dr Oluwasogo Dada
