At the meeting of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) with some members of the BOT on the 14th March, 2017 a Steering Committee was set up. It comprises four members of the BOT and members of the Local Organizing Committee. The Committee was to work out the modalities for the election of the executive members for the Association. A period of six (6) months was been given to the Commit-tee to carry out this assignment.
All the alumni of this great Faculty of Engineering are admonished to be part of this Association. This is a call for the development of engineering education in Nigeria and a call for national development because no nation develops without appropriate engineering skills. We all know that without engineer-ing there cannot be any state of art technology and no development of sort can take place. The nations that have technological know-how are those nations that understand and have given scientific learning its dues. Engineers are by their education, training and experience, the disciples of technology. No se-rious-minded person will contest that, above all, modern technology must be seen for what it is, the only key that controls the future. Our state of development in Nigeria is a reflection of our level of technological development.
The Chairman, LOC will present a catalogue of the Faculty needs that require urgent attention. We are very optimistic that things will change for good with the generous contribution of all of us.
As I close, I wish to sincerely thank the Chairman of the LOC and his team as well as the Chairman of University of Lagos class of 69.72 for their commitment and being part of the LOC for this outing.
