A philanthropist and Engineer, Chief Julius Ajibulu, has donated a three-floor building with over 29 rooms and a large parcel of land measuring about two and a half acres located at Oyin Akoko to Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State.

Chief Ajibulu, Managing Director of Nobell Engineering Company, and Roja Associates Engineering Consultancy, said that the donation was his own way of giving back to the society, boosting the economy of Oyin Akoko (his home town), as well as fulfilling his vision of having an educational institution in the town.

He said the vision of having such an institution informed the design of the two-storey building with 29 rooms as well as other adjoining structures.

His words: “It’s been my ambition to have some enduring structure like an educational institution, and that informed the design of this property. I’m now handing this over to the University so it could be used as an educational edifice in line with my original vision and expectation.

“I believe by the time this place is put to use by the university that it will boost socio-economic, activities in this town. The artisans and market women, as well as commercial motorcyclists will make more money. I also believe that the presence of undergraduates here would make many lazy youths to sit-up and dream bigger.”

Speaking after inspecting the properties, the Vice Chancellor, Prof Igbekele Ajibefun, lauded the gesture and called on well-meaning individuals and communities to donate to help the university develop, saying government alone cannot fund tertiary education in Nigeria.

Ajibefun said: “We’re highly impressed with what we have seen and the large heart that Chief has for donating this to the university. This is a good example of how the society can grow.

“The university, therefore, expresses its appreciation to him. We will perfect the papers so we can take possession and put the properties to use without delay.”

Also speaking, the Oloyin of Oyin- Akoko, Oba Olusola Bamisile, praised Ajibulu for the donation and urged the university to take possession and put the facilities to immediate use.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
