Olowu Donates Books to Mark Birthday0
Public Relations consultant and notable brands and media journalist, Mr. Ganiyu Olowu, recently donated 70 Mass Communication and media related textbooks to the Department of Mass Communication, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, (MAPOLY) Abeokuta, Ogun State to commemorate his 40th birthday, which he marked on Wednesday April 17, 2013.
A statement issued by Tunde Dawood-Akerele, Associate Consultant, TST Public Relations on behalf of Ganiyu Olowu noted, “Olowu’s turning 40 years old is symbolic and it provides opportunity to reflect on the past and project how to better serve God and be more useful to humanity.
For me, turning 40 is not the big thing, the lesson there is for me to ask myself how far have I been useful to God and the reason for my creation. I think beyond all the rat race, it is time to be closer to God and be part of social value development in Nigeria and beyond.
He noted further that the need to support social responsibility development and add value to our local economy informed the decision for the donation of those mass communication and media studies textbooks to MAPOLY Mass Communication department, where he graduated from about 16 years ago.
He noted, “I am using this symbolic event to call everyone of us to action to give back to our schools as a way of further improving the state of the education sector. Nothing is too small to add value to our dying education system. You can contribute human hour, books, advice and raise public support for the system”.
Olowu explained that 40 out of the 70 Mass Communication textbooks were symbolically donated to mark the 40th birthday, while the remaining 30 were to complement volumes of books in the popular Mass Communication Training Centre.
Head of Department of Mass Communication, Alhaji Akeem Rauf Adegoke described the gesture of the donor as unique and commendable and enjoined other Alumni members to emulate him.
