Osunleke Oludare Alaba, an ex-student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, who was in the news recently for returning his certificate to the school demanding a refund of his tuition fees, has received help from the school’s alumni.
Global Alumni President of LAUTECH, Solomon Onilede, on Sunday, presented a cheque of N500,000 to Alaba, according to Vanguard.
He also presented a cheque of a N1 million to a physically-challenged ex-student of the institute, Babatunde Kewejo, to support his business as a commercial driver, while his first child was also given scholarship up to university level.
The Editorial reported that Alaba had, last week, visited his alma mater to demand refund of his school fees and returned the certificate because he considered it worthless and added no value to his life.
While presenting the cheques to the duo, Onilede said the financial intervention was to cushion the effect of economic realities on the selected beneficiaries.
He, therefore, urged them to use it judiciously.
In his remark, Alabi commended the association for coming to his aide in his trying period and assured them that the money would be judiciously used.
Also speaking, Alaba appreciated the association for coming to his rescue and being a beacon of support to his family.
