The Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Alumni has charged the Clerk to National Assembly, Arc. Amos Olatunde Ojo, and other products of the school who are legislators to make the school proud by contributing to national development.
The lawmakers and other top government officials who passed through the University were also enjoined to take the school to greater heights.
The Alumni Chairman, Abuja Chapter, Mr Samson Isichei, who led other members on a courtesy call to the office of the CNA at the National Assembly, insisted on the unity of the alma mater as the school was set to celebrate its 61st year anniversary.
Isichei told the Clerk that there was a need for the products of the university that occupies strategic government and private sector offices to come together in adding value to the ivory tower.
Mr Isichei, who spoke on behalf of the group, listed Abuja Head Office, Life Insurance Scheme for members etc, as projects and programmes lined up for execution.
“Office for Alumni from other first-generation universities have been built here in Abuja, making that of OAU, very necessary.
“Meetings where plans for execution of the project, have been held and resolutions were taken to reach out to other Alumni like the CNA and serving federal lawmakers for their partnership and required supports”, he said.
Assuring them of his support at all times, the CNA said as a proud alumnus of the School, he will do all within his capacity for the actualization of the stated project and programmes.
“I’m very happy to meet you as Alumni of our great Alma Mater with the attendant aura of the good old days.
“I thank you immensely for your time and resources being deployed for further greatness of our Alma Mater because not many of us have this type of time.
“Myself and serving federal lawmakers from the Great Ife (OAU), will surely key into your project and programmes with required supports financially and logistically.
“As regards names of serving federal lawmakers who are fellow Alumni, I will want the request to be officially made through letters to that effect which incidentally, will be attended to by the Permanent Secretary, Human Resources who is an Alumnus of the school “, he said.
