We refer to the letter on the above subject dated 18th day of March and addressed to your office by one Dr. Stephen Olawale Fasakin.
We write to inform you that the author of the letter on the above subject matter did not have the power to write such a letter having been duly suspended as the President of the University of Ilorin Alumni Association. Not only that, the letter was written by him without the knowledge and authority of the National Executive Committee
However, we state categorically that the procedure for convening and holding the Convocation held at the Auditorium on 19th March, 2021 was in line with the provisions of the University of Ilorin Act and same was duly complied with by the University Administration under your able leadership.
The entire members of the Unilorin Alumni wish to commend you for giving us the enabling environment to conduct the election of a representative of Convocation to the Governing Council.
Apart from the fact that the election was free and fair, it was equally rancour-free with impressive attendance.
We congratulate you on this achievement and assure you of our unalloyed support in steering the ship of our great University.
Thank you, sir.
Dr Musa Abdullah
Ag. National President
Ibrahim Atanda ESQ
Ag. National General Secretary
