The Food, Beverage and Tobacco Senior Staff Association has commissioned the multi-million naira, 49-roomed hostel it newly constructed along Federal University Road Junction, Oye-Ekiti on 16th of October, 2020.
According to FOBTOB National President, Comrade Quadri Olaleye, the hostel was constructed to provide a standard and conducive accommodation for students of the Federal University of Oye-Ekiti, so that they can pursue their academic goals with ease.
The Oloye of Oyeland, Oba (Sir) Michael Oluwole Ademolaju Adugbole III, who was the royal father of the day, did the commissioning in grand style.
While commending FOBTOB for the million naira fire control installed in the building, he also praised the aesthetics of the building saying, “It is so good, so beautiful”.
Oba Ademolaju further expressed surprise at how well the association functions, and encouraged the association to go into more housing for the community, not just for students.
He said, “We are accommodative, we want things like this to continue”.
Also, the governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, was ably represented at the ceremony by his Senior Special Adviser on Labour matters, Chief Oluyemi Esan.
