“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, a first class traditional ruler and many outstanding professionals.”

The AMACOG chairman said the association ecognized that such celebration could not be deemed notable without the set giving back to the school through the department.

Adeshina stated that the one-day event would be rounded off with a dinner on Friday, saying this would allow the old course mates to network and exchange ideas on how to move the association and the department forward.
