Old students renovate, equip MAPOLY TV Studio


The Association of Mass Communication Graduates (AMACOG 1992 set) of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) Abeokuta in Ogun, has renovated and equipped the institution’s television studio to enhance performance in the department.

This is contained in a statement by the Chairman, Mr Adekunle Adesina, made available to newsmen on Friday in Lagos.

According to Adesina, presentation of the renovated studio is part of activities lined up by the association members to mark the 30th anniversary of their graduation from the polytechnic, slated for July 1.

The AMACOG ’92 is an association of 1992 graduates of the then Ogun State Polytechnic, now MAPOLY.

Adesina said that the anniversary was a time for members of the association (old students)  to support the Department of Mass Communication of the institution in key areas.

“Members plan to unveil a television studio, which the old students had renovated and in which modern equipment had been installed.

“The presentation of the renovated studio is expected to draw the Acting Rector, of the school, Mr Adeoye Odedeji.

“The Head of Department, Mass Communicatin, Mr Lekan Togunwa and the Olota of Ota, Prof. Adeyemi Obalanlege, who is also a member of the association, are also expected to grace the ceremony.

“We cannot allow 30 years of our graduation from the school to pass away unnoticed and uncelebrated.

“Many of our members have grown in their respective fields of life endeavour, but do not  forget that they started their tertiary education in this place.

“In this unique set, we have editors of national newspapers, publishers, general managers of radio and television stations, proprietors of broadcast stations, directors in both State and Federal ministries, as well as a first class traditional ruler and many other outstanding professionals,” he stated.

Adesina said that the association recognised that such celebration could not be deemed notable, without the set giving back to the school through the department.

He said that the renovated television studio, installed modern equipment, would aid the impartation of modern education and practical skills in contemporary media practice to the current and future students.

Adesina stated that the one-day event would be rounded off with a dinner on Friday.

He said that this would allow members to network and exchange ideas on how to move the association and the department forward.
