ACSK Donates Multi-million Water, Toilet Facilities to School in Ogun0
A foremost company in poultry and aquaculture farming in Nigeria, Animal Care Services Konsult (ACSK) Limited, has donated multi-million naira water and toilet facilities to a 40-year-old secondarychool in Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The facilities built and donated by the firm to Ositelu Memorial College (junior and senior sections), Ogere Remo are two boreholes with elevated water tanks and generating sets, as well as two blocks of ultra-modern toilets for students and staff of the school.
Speaking during the inauguration of the projects, the president, ACSK, Dr Olatunde Agbato, described the donation as part of the company’s constant corporate social responsibility to the Ogere community where his firm had been operating for more than 30 years.
“Any responsible company must associate itself with its host community and Ogere is our host community where we have been doing our business for over 30 years now. And we believe that we owe it a duty to give something back to the society. We have been doing it for quite a long time now. We have been involved in various community development initiatives in Ogere community.
“For this particular project, we were moved by the fact that a school that is 40 years old has no toilet facilities of its own, with the students having to go into the bush,” Agbato said.
“So, we decided to come in as our own little contribution so as to create a more conducive learning environment for the students in the school,” Agbato said.
Also speaking on the occasion, the principal of the senior school, Mr A.O Onabowale, who incidentally is an old student of the school, described the donated items as the priority needs of the school and commended the company for the multi-million naira projects.
“This family (of Dr and Dame (Mrs) Agbato) is always the first to come to mind anytime we have problem that is beyond our control and they are always bringing us out of the wood. Before this donation of toilet facility, this company had always been there for principals and in my own time, the compant has done exceedingly great.
“This toilet facility is a major need of the school as we have students strolling the streets of Ogere during school hours on the point of going home to use toilet. But today, I believe very strongly that there is no more excuse to parade the street. In fact, no more defecating in the bush by both students and teachers,” he said.
Onabowale assured the donor that the facilities would be put to good use and maintained.
The chairperson, Ogere Community Development Council (OCDC), Chief (Mrs) B.A Orebamjo, prayed to God to continue to bless and keep the company and its proprietor.
