An American-based Non-Governmental Organization, Mercy International Medical Mission, has donated medical supplies to Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo. Making the donation, the founder of the organization, Erelu Anu A. Esuola, said she was delighted to donate the medical items to the University health center, noting that her 30-year-old organization has been desirous to have a linkage with any institution in Oyo town, where her husband hails. She said the organization would regularly replenish the supplies when they are exhausted.
Before the donation, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Timothy Adebayo, accompanied by his Deputy, Professor Muwyiwa Popoola, and some Principal Officers of the University, took the founder of the organization and her husband, Professor Esuola, to a selected facility visit of the campus. At the Department of Accounting, Professor Esuola, an expert in that field, promised to donate laptops equipped with the latest software in Accounting to the Department. He also volunteered to give free lectures to the students whenever he visits Nigeria.
At the University Water factory, Professor Esuola confessed that he was ‘blown away’ by the technology being deployed in the production.
‘I am amazed by the way bottles are produced, and the kind of technology you use. As an Auditor, I have visited many water production companies in the United States to audit them, and I must confess that I have not seen where they deploy the kind of technology you have here. I must confess that I am completely blown away. Esuola said.
He stated that it was on their visit to the Alaafin, Oba Dr. Lamidi Adeyemi III that the traditional ruler told them to visit Ajayi Crowther University to examine ways to partner with the University.
After the selected tour of the campus, Erelu Anu A. Esuola and her husband were led to the medical Centre by the Vice-Chancellor to donate the medical items that included blood pressure kits, thermometers, medicated eyeglasses, diabetes kits, syringes, and several others. The Vice-Chancellor expressed gratitude to the organization for the supplies and promised that the University would put them to good use. At the end of the presentation, the Bishop of Crowther Diocese, Rt. Rev. Olukemi Oduntan, who was at the campus at that time, to the campus prayed, for the couple and the University.
