Speaking at the occasion, the Dean Student Affairs in the College, Olaniyi Olaluwoye described the NRCS as one of the notable voluntary organisations that has made positive contributions to peace and progress, and has also been actively involved in humanitarian services.


He commended members of the organisation for rendering selfless service and exhibition of good conduct and promised to continue to identify with the organisation as it strives to attain its laudable goals.

A leader of the NRCS in the state, Femi Ladenika, expressed appreciation to the provost for his support to the society, among which were allocation of office, prompt response to requests, and promotion of a conducive teaching-learning environment, as well as creation of favorable environment.

In his remarks, the Akintunde lauded the leadership and members of the college chapter of the NRSC for their contributions to the growth and development of the institution, describing the group as one of the most responsible, responsive, level headed and an ambassador of peace in the college.

His words: “Let me start by acknowledging the fact that the Red Cross in Adeyemi College of Education, has been one of the most responsible and responsive to duties and has justified official reasons for its establishment.

“We can say very well that the Red Cross Society in the college has been very helpful. This is a pointer from where we never had problems, particularly when we talk of paramilitary set up in the college.”
