The Executive of Fourah Bah College Alumni Association, on behalf of its membership, has on the 21st July 2021 extended profound thanks and appreciation to Ing. Alhaji Mohamed Babatunde Cole for donating an Alumni office space in his newly constructed Tunde Cole Engineering building at Fourah Bay College which was commissioned by His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio on the 18th July 2022.
It continued that Ing. Tunde Cole had always been a pillar of support to the Alumni Association revealing how twenty-five years ago, he personally launched the Alumni Association with a considerable sum of money which was more than enough to kick-start the Association.
The FBC Alumni Association Executive stated how once again it’s another story of his support to the Association maintaining that in his speech at the commissioning of the Tunde Cole Building, he said, “The building also houses offices for the Alumni Association”. For that the Executive expressed gratitude disclosing how office space had been their major challenge.
“We are also oblivious to the truism of his statement that ‘if the university should grow and maintain its standard to compete worldwide, the Alumni Association has to buck up and take control of their responsibilities towards the college,’” it stated.
On that note, according to the FBC Alumni Association Executive, they want to assure Ing Tunde Cole that what was their challenge (office space) is now a thing of the past due to his intervention.
It concluded that to that end, their newly donated office space will officially open in November 2022 for full-time Alumni activities adding that the date will be communicated formally after the Executive concludes deliberations.
