The National leadership of the Alumni of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta (MAPOLY) has commended Governor Dapo Abiodun for his varied supports towards the advancement of MAPOLY.
Pastor Emmanuel Obasanya, the President of the Alumni made the statement during a courtesy visit to the Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Samson Odedina in his office.
Obasanya stated that the body language of Governor Dapo Abiodun since his first day in office has truly proved that he has genuine interest in advancing MAPOLY.
“We understand the enormity of responsibility and projects the State Government under the able leadership of our Executive Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR embarked upon across the State, hence we want to officially register our appreciation to him.
We want to also register our appreciation to him for what he has done to the institution as we are aware that the institution was in comatose and immediately his administration came in, it was like number one priority to him and he quickly settled the dust.
“And today, the institution is stabilized such that we will continue to experience the necessary development that our School deserves”, the President stated.
The host, Dr Odedina, assured the association of the Governor Abiodun’s resolve to do everything possible, especially in the area of Agriculture, to keeping MAPOLY’s flag flying as the pride of the State, especially in the area of Agriculture.
“I want to place on record that Governor Dapo Abiodun MFR is serious about the progress of MAPOLY; in addition to rescusitating the institution in his first days in office, during one of our Executive meetings, His Excellency said, ‘go and do MAPOLY internal roads’, just like that, and it was done.
“As I speak to you, Governor Abiodun has approved a 200 hectares of farmland duly cleared for the benefit of Ojere Community under the Anchor Borrower’s program of which input and training will be provided by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
“With a good proposal, government can give 20 acres to the Alumni”, Odedina stated.
RazorTimes recall that Dr Samson Odedina, who presently is the Honorable Commissioner for Agriculture in Ogun State was the immediate past Rector of MAPOLY, and that throughout his tenure in office, there was no students’ protest or riot, in fact, the SUG election held under his leadership was adjudged the ever free, fair and credible election.
The President, Pastor Obasanya was accompanied by Mrs Oluwatoyin Adeyemo, Mr Goke Ishola, Mr Tunde Odeyemi, Mr Alex Ogunsola, Mr Olalekan Adeosun, Alhaji Najeem Gbadamosi and Mrs Asisat Adebayo.
