Determined to ensure that their wards get the best educationally, the Bells University Parents Forum, BUPF, have commissioned a N45 million cafeteria and e-learning centre at the Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun State.
Speaking at the commissioning, the chairman, BUPF, Mr. Kayode Shobajo, said the centres, comprising a 200-seater cafeteria and e-learning centre fitted with 44 state-of-the-art internet-enabled computers, were to augment what was already on ground.
“Education should not be left in the hands of schools alone, prompting the BUPF to embark on this project in 2010. The VC made it clear that these projects would be optimal when we were considering where to intervene.
“Going forward, it is our hope that the cafeteria and e-learning centre, which would also serve as students’ project completion area, would transform to better learning environment for the students.”
Appreciating the efforts of the parents, the VC, Bells University, Prof. Isaac Adeyemi, said the project was timely as the company that was managing its e-learning centre terminated its contract. He also disclosed that the school is in talks with an American company on how to improve on the school.
The centres would be managed by the BUPF and the proceeds would be ploughed back for future developmental projects in the university.
