He stated, “My dream is to support Augustine University to become the number one centre of excellence in Africa for the study of the various disciples of Engineering.”
In addition to this historic feat, the first turning of the soil for the second building of the faculty of engineering was carried out by Lady Doja Otedola, after she cut the tape of the newly commissioned building.
