Lagos — Oodua Investment limited has awarded scholarship to 44 undergraduates of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife who have excelled in the qualifying tests conducted for students within south west zone.
Speaking during a working visit to the institution, recently the Group Managing Director, Mr. Adebayo Jimoh, said the institution has the highest number of beneficiaries in the roll of 200 successful undergraduates who qualified for the scholarship.
This, according to him, was an indication that OAU has maintained its standard over the years.
Jimoh, who described the visit to the Institution as home-coming, said OAU management's request for partnership was a good development, which the organisation would explore to establish its corporate presence in the university.
He advised the beneficiaries of the scholarship to utilise it judiciously.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics), Prof. Funmi Togonu-Bickersteth, thanked the organisation for its efforts at facilitating education by awarding scholarship to deserving undergraduates adding that the gesture would encourage younger generation to channel their energy towards intensive studies.
While expressing readiness to collaborate with the organisation, the DVC implored Oodua Investment boss, to consider areas of partnership with the institution in its quest to acquire top-class personnel for the attainment of its organisational goals.
