Havilah Donates N5m worth of books to FUOYE
Havilah Donates N5m worth of books to FUOYE.
Havilah Merchants Nigeria Limited, in rising up to what it called its corporatesocial responsibility, has donated books worth N5m to Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Ekiti State on Monday, February 17,2014, at the University Main Campus, at Oye-Ekiti.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Isaac Asuzu, was represented by Dean Faculty of Engineering, Prof. Christian Bolu. The Dean while welcoming the donor on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, who was away to Abuja on an official engagement, commended Havilah Merchants Nigeria Limited for their worthy and timely contribution to the development of the young university.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Havilah Merchants Nigeria Limited, Ogbeni ‘Lanre Adesuyi, in his address thanked God for making the donation possible by offering him the opportunity not only to draw attention to the socio-economic significance of having a Federal University located in Oye-Ekiti, but equally to underscore the appropriateness of a Yoruba adage which says that ‘’Agbajo owopo l’a fi n so’ya’’, (Unity in progress).
Ogbeni Adesuyi said Federal University, Oye-Ekiti had, since inception three years ago, made steadyprogress in infrastructural development and academic pursuit. He recalled that about a year ago,FUOYE in her quest for a rapid academic development had entrusted upon him the chairmanship ofthe University’s Fund Raising Committee for which he thanked God for the success he and membersof his committee recorded in the discharge of the assignment. He however agreed that much more remained to be done.
At the end of his speech the MD/CEO, on behalf of Havilah Merchants Nigeria Limited, donated academic books and reference materials worth over N5m to FUOYE, stating that it was his modest contribution towards the rapid growth of academic programmes in the fledgling university.
According to him, the concept of communal growth meant that every little contribution, even thewidow’s mite, filled a vacuum in the hierarchy of needs. He therefore called for the singleness of purpose and the determination that characterised Nehemiah’s successful building project in the Bible; and avowed that only through these can the dream of making FUOYE a first-class university be achieved.
Havilah Merchants Nigeria Limited is a wholly indigenous firm which is in the forefront of ensuring that tertiary institutions, corporate establishments and MDAs get the best quality products and services in the books procurement, library shelving, library automation, provision of furniture, equipment and electronics database. He stated that the company was determined to make indelible contributions to the University’s history of growth and success as they marched into greatness together in the years ahead, God willing.
Finally, he called on all concerned to rise to the clarion call of FUOYE in their bid to bequeath the legacy of Oxford or Harvard education to FUOYE when its history shall be revisited in a few years to come. The University Librarian, Mr Michael Afolabi, in his response on receiving the books on behalf of the University, thanked the donor for his kind and worthy gesture, promising that the books would go a long way in ameliorating the University’s book- related needs. Mr Afolabi maintained that a well- equipped library was a sine qua non for a good university which is captured in a popular parlance, ‘’show me your library, I will tell you the quality of your University’’.
In his closing remarks, Prof. Christian Bolu thanked the Havilah Chairman for the donation. He alsorevealed that a recent world universities ranking placed FUOYE at 10, 760 in the world, 209 in African and 27 in Nigeria which made it number one among the 12 new universities in Nigeria. He hoped that the books would contribute immensely to further boosting the rank of the university in future rankings.
The event was graced by the Oloye of Oye-Ekiti, Oba Sir Michael Oluwole Ademolaju and his entourage, Principal Officers and some staff members of the University, members of the press and some other dignitaries.
