He said the vision is to stop indiscrimate posting of notices in the Centre.
He explained that the boards were installed on behalf of Society of Environmental and Health Sciences Students (SEHSS) of the centre who, during their 2015 election, requested the Foundation to sponsor it to enable them secure their information dissemination system. He added that SEHSS also requested for laboratory equipment from the Foundation.
“The Damian Azubuike UM Foundation decided to take the notice board while the fund-raising for the laboratory equipment will take place on December 3, 2015 at the NNS Quorra, Apapa,” he stated.
The Principal officer, registrar of the Centre, Dr. O. S. Odusanya and the Chief student’s counsellor, Dr. D.M Aderigbigbe extolled the virtues of the national president of the Foundation and praised his efforts in contributing to the upliftment of the Study Centre.
Odusanya urged the Foundation to ensure that they control the kind of information that would be disseminated through the notice boards, so that unscrupulous elements would not take advantage of the board to spread falsehood in the Centre.
