Former president Olusegun Obasanjo Saturday commissioned a N67.4 million conference centre at the Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun state.

Commissioning the project at the institution’s premises, Mr Obasanjo described the upgrading of the building from a multi-purpose to a conference hall as a remarkable feat.

Mr Obasanjo, promoter of the institution, described the facility as an effort towards making Bells University one of the best tertiary institutions in the country, and said improving the quality of education in the country was a collective responsibility.

“Education is the collective responsibility of everybody and by bringing resources together it would help the nation accomplish sustainable national development,” he said.

The conference centre was renovated and upgraded by the 2020/2021 Executives of the Bells University Parents’ Forum (BUPF).

Jeremiah Ojediran, Vice-Chancellor of Bells University, commended the forum for assisting the institution in infrastructure development.

Mr Ojediran promised to interface with the forum for various purposes, while announcing that the institution’s forthcoming matriculation and convocation would be held at the centre.

“We shall use the multipurpose centre judiciously for human development,” he said.
