The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Adebowale on Thursday, 14th March 2024 unveiled the signage donated to the Institute of Education.

Professor Adebowale said the alumni are very dear to the University. This, according to him, is because the federal government has to contend with so many issues, and it is, therefore, unable to meet the needs of the universities a hundred percent.

He stressed that it is very apparent that the 51 federal universities need to be proactive to meet the challenges of funding.

 “This was why the University of Ibadan created the Office of Alumni Relations to deepen the University’s relationship with its alumni.” he added

The Director of the Institute of Education, Professor J. A. Adegbile said the project was sponsored by the wife and children of the late Professor Siyan Malomo, a one-time Director of the Geological Survey Agency of Nigeria. 

Professor Adebowale and Professor Adegbile appreciated the family of Professor Siyan Malomo, who donated the signage, and the Director of the Institute for attracting the donation. 

Professor Adegbile described Professor Malomo as a great Uite and a great Independite who had always donated generously to the University.
