He restated the commitment of the old students to continue to give back to their alma mater towards improving its quality and output.
Sipeolu, who performed the unveiling of the Faculty signage, disclosed that it was donated by an alumnus and former Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology in Ogun State, Mr Segun Odubela (SAN).

Also speaking, Chief Okenla, who represented the first set of the Faculty of Law, pledged to donate a building for the Faculty.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, who was excited by the donation, expressed the appreciation of the University Management to the Law Alumni.
According to him, the Law Alumni ranks higher among all the alumni associations in terms of commitment and service to the institution.
Prof. Olatunde assured that the University would continue to appreciate and give the alumni necessary support towards achieving its goals and aspirations.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, (Administration) Prof. Charles Adekoya, has lauded members of the Law Alumni for their consistent and continued support to the Faculty and the University.

Adekoya, who was the immediate past Dean, Faculty of Law, recalled some of the invaluable and unprecedented contributions of the old students.
He said the contributions, including financial commitments, have gone a long way to assist the Faculty to adequately prepare for accreditation.
His words: “We appreciate the donors for making available 120 chairs for the Law Library, 10 sets of computer with monitor and a set of Laws of the Federation of Nigeria. The chairs with armrest cost N1.5million.

We appreciate you because you are actually setting the pace as the pace-setter set of the Faculty by donating generously to your alma mater because that would go a long way to fulfill the needs of the students in terms of sitting comfortably in the  Law Library and to be able to read for long hours.”

Adekoya noted that the alumni had been awesome and supportive while he served as the Dean of the Faculty.

“By the grace of God, we are hoping that we would be raising money from philanthropists and from organisations as corporate social responsibility so that we can upgrade our offices and ensure that staff have decent offices throughout the University,” he added.
