“Today, I am reminded of those who have nurtured and supported me. I especially want to recognise my friends and family whom I have not just gained their understanding, but also helped our campaign in strategic intelligence gathering which I had enjoyed, including other stakeholders and eminent personalities who were persuaded by our programmes and without much ado, graciously joined us, gave their support and demonstrated the true bonding that connect us,” he said.

Enumerating the blueprint for his administration, the new chairman heaped words of appreciation to his friends, family and cronies.

His words: “This new Administration will promote an alumni network active database and Oyo State Chapter’s membership ID Card.  We shall deploy ICT in such a way that 2-way communication will be established between the secretariat and all members. 

The Alumni directory becomes a platform to maximise the power of numerical strength and a veritable tool for strategic planning. Our belief is that having a stronger State chapter will go a long way in improving the resources for future prospect.  A State Chapter secretariat is possible.

“Our Administration will establish a Pacesetter Alumni Farm Cooperative. The aim of this proposal is to launch the Alumni Farm Co-operative and to invest in agriculture as a means of generating revenue for the association while also engaging our members who have interest or soft – spot for the agricultural sector. 

We believe that this Farm will make agricultural produce affordable for members of our Association in Oyo State and by extension, members of their families and this will in turn bring the name of our alumni chapter into limelight.

“We shall foster Student – Alumni engagement in order to build a platform for academic excellence by involving alumni and supporting the Career aspiration of our Students and Alumni, existing in the space. We shall engage students as Interns, assist our graduates who are unemployed to get jobs through our various connections and available career pools. We shall also organize a Short-Term Loan Initiative through Thrifts and personal donation to assist our members into SMEs. It is possible together and by the time we get to the bridge, we shall give a true model to achieving them.

“Finally, A solid administrative platform is essential for growth. We will continue to refine our administrative systems to ensure that they are efficient as possible while being accountable to both national and our chapter. It is important that every Alumnus must be ready for the task ahead, to rebuild our chapter and also give their financial commitment, engage themselves in the program of the chapter, such that can generate more fund for the betterment of our dear Chapter and the National body as a whole.

“This administration will have Liason Officers across the 33 Local Government Areas in the State and our approved affiliate Campus of Oyo. We shall be decentralizing the leadership and ensure that it is accessible to all, without stress. 

“My message cannot be brought to a close without mentioning the Director General of my Campaign- Com. Afolabi Fakayode (Afoo), a brother in whom I am always well pleased. 

Your time, talents and treasures to today’s success cannot be overemphasized. My dear brother, Comrade ‘Sola Fayemi, your roles cannot be quantified and you left a wonderful print once again in my heart. I have never had a doubt in your credence and quality. Oyo Chapter is blessed with your likes. Thank you very much.

“I also appreciate the Oyo state Chapter Harmonisations Committee; Comrade Afolabi Fakayode – Afoo, Comrade ‘Sola Fayemi(Senator), (Agboola Adesoji (SOJ), Comrade Fowowe, Osunkojo Samson (BigSam), Abass Gbadamosi.
