The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has urged old students to influence learners’ lives positively with impactful interventions provided for their alma maters.
Sanwo-Olu who stated this at the unveiling of a 140-bed hall of residence at the Baptist Academy Lagos recently, said that the project represents a befitting intervention, which alumni associations could use to support their alma maters and provide platforms for academic advancement.
The single-storey dormitory named, “Kikelomo Hall” was donated to the school by Mr Ayodeji Fadoju of 1988 set of the school.
Sanwo-Olu said: “This is one of the ways we can use our resources and talents to better our communities and leave enduring endowment behind. “I feel highly encouraged to come and identify with this noble cause when I saw the pictures of this beautifully designed edifice. This is a landmark intervention from an old student to boost education access at his alma mater. This is a clear example for every one of us, as interventions such as this can be identified by Old Students’ Associations across our schools to change the lives of students.”
