The Faculty of Dental Sciences, College of Medicine, University of Lagos, has received a donation of a modern library from an alumnus, the Chief Executive Officer of New Cross Petroleum, Dr. Bolaji Ogundare.

While handing over the facility to the college on Thursday, Ogundare said the gesture was to  give its users access to updated information in the field of dentistry.


 Ogundare said, “As a student and alumnus of the faculty, what I discovered was lacking in the present-day education situation is access to global information, which can only be gotten from a well-equipped library with an internet facility and upgraded text books.

“It is what  I have always wanted to do and I feel very fortunate to do this in my school environment. I want to appreciate the school management for their approval because it’s a different thing to want to give back and a different thing for the college to give the go ahead.”


The donor, therefore, encouraged the college to profile the faculty of dental sciences as one of the resource materials in the library.

 “It is always good to tell your story for reference purposes and every student, old and new, should be able to do a background check on their college at any point in time,” he said.


Speaking at the inauguration, the Provost, CMUL, Prof. Folounsho Lesi, who lauded the gesture, said that an institution without a well-resourced library would add no value to research.

Lesi said, “Dental education is one of the most expensive types of education in the world today and it requires a lot of expensive resources that need to be subsidised by this type of gesture. This donation is highly appreciated by the university authority and we are using this time to call on other alumni not to hesitate to give back to the college.”
