The Newly Commissioned Accountancy Laboratory


In the quest to boost the ongoing development in KOLADAISI UNIVERSITY Ibadan, an Accountancy Laboratory was commissioned on Monday, 16 May, 2022 for the Accounting Programme of the University. The project, which was financed by Heritage Bank Plc., as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and some friends of the University Bursar, was to enhance the teaching of Accounting Programme in the University. This would also prepare the students to be world class graduates and be relevant in the job market.

The commissioning of the laboratory commenced with the cutting of the tape by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olatunbosun, who encouraged the students to maximise the rare opportunity given them. He also welcomed the representatives of Heritage Bank Plc., to the University and expressed appreciation for their remarkable support, which would further strengthen the existing partnership already existing between the University and the Bank.

The University Bursar, Mr. Yinka Babatunde, who facilitated the project expressed his gratitude to Heritage Bank Plc. for rising up to the challenge of giving back to the University. He stated that the laboratory would give students the opportunity to practicalise and apply their theoretical knowledge in the work environment. He stressed that the job market was looking for those who can “do”, not those with head knowledge alone.

Mr. Tayo Akinola, the Divisional Head of Heritage Bank Plc., Ibadan, in his own speech advised the students of the Accounting Programme to make good use of the advantage the Laboratory would provide. He said “during my days in school I never had this opportunity till I started to work, so I had to learn all this practical aspect you are privileged to enjoy now after school.” Mr. Akinola also thanked the University Management and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity given to jointly make the laboratory a reality.

The Acting HOD, Accounting and Business Administration, Dr. Olajumoke Ogunniyi, in her remarks, expressed her in-depth gratitude to the University’s Management and Heritage Bank Plc., for the much needed laboratory, which according to her, the NUC had made a compulsory requirement for the Programme.

Thereafter, some students of the Accounting Programme were privileged to perform and demonstrate the theoretical aspect of what they had been taught in class in the Laboratory.
