RECTOR’S ADDRESS

AT THE COMMISSIONING CEREMONY

OF THE PETROLEUM TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FUND (PTDF) INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

CENTRE ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013

 

      

Protocols

On behalf of the management, staff and students, I welcome you (Ag. Executive Secretary Mr. Jolomi Areyenenka) to this auspicious occasion of the commissioning of PTDF Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Centre here in Yaba College of Technology, the cradle of higher learning in Nigeria.

 

The journey to this commissioning began in July 2009 when the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) selected Yaba College of Technology as one of the beneficiaries of the second phase PTDF ICT intervention project for institutions.

 

The college reacted positively to the magnanimous offer by providing a parcel of land for the development of the project.  The project which effectively commenced on February 8, 2010 was awarded to Messrs Hasting Global Service with an agreed completion period of 6 months. 

The PTDF/ICT Centre is a 100 seater building equipped with Computer Work Stations, a Server Room, Independent Power Supply (50KVA Generator), VSAT and Air Conditioning facilities.

 

The college is indeed delighted to be a beneficiary.  It is my sincere hope therefore that the commissioning of this project will herald the beginning of further collaboration between Yaba College of Technology and Petroleum Technology Development Fund.

 

Today, the centre has become a hub for students’ registration and the teaching of computer courses for staff and students.  I assure you that the college will continue to make good use of facilities  at the centre to add value to the community.

 

Finally, I once again thank the Petroleum Technology Development Fund for the support demonstrated by this noble gesture.

 

Thank you.

 

DR. M. K. LADIPO
