ASWA REUNION (1975-2002)

The Homecoming reunion of the Adventist Seminary of West-Africa (ASWA) Alumni, from 1975 to 2002, which is scheduled to hold for 1 week, is an avenue to create a special bonding for alumni and renew the good old days while they are here.

Present at the occasion, also an alumnus, the Vice Chancellor of Babcock University, Professor Ademola Tayo, in his speech stated that the institution which started with 7 students in 1959 has grown to home about 11 thousand students by the Grace of God.

Professor Tayo has urged not to despise the days of little beginning. In his address, he made reference to the graduates the University has produced, ranging from Notables holding Key positions in the country, Fintechs like Paystack, and even the Music industry at large.

The Vice-Chancellor explained that the purpose of the reunion is to come together and think of how to give back to the University and find a way to move forward.

Pastor Oyeleke Owolabi, also present at the reunion said “we have come to this gathering to rejoice and give thanks to God”. Catching up with old friends, he reminisced on the time the University was without many structures but everything is fully developed and the alumni building is one of the best structures we have in the University currently. He talked about how everyone who came out of ASWA is doing well and in a leadership position.

The Past President of Babcock Alumni, Chief Owolabi Shitta Rahmon, stated that he graduated from the institution at the age of 20, and wherever he took the certificate, home or abroad, it has always been relevant and it has opened doors for him.

Chief Rahmon Shitta and other principal officers unveiled the prototype of the Andrews park project that would begin soon.
