 The Acting Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Wole Banjo, has commended members of the TASUED Enactus for winning the 2021 edition of the National competition.

Enatus is a non - profit organisation that seeks to inculcate entrepreneurial and leadership qualities in university students and mobilize them to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders to the society and nation. 

Its presence is felt in about 30 universities, including TASUED, in Nigeria with over 1500 active students and had impacted positively on an estimated 15,000,000 people in decades. 

Prof.  Banjo described the TASUED team of Enatus as comprising highly innovative students who used their time, talents and entrepreneurial skills in making the world a better place to live.

He gave the commendation when he received members of the team in his office recently. 

The Acting Vice-Chancellor noted that he wasn't surprised at the exploits of the team, adding that the Institution is full of unique Staff and Students who  have chosen to use their time,  energy, skills and resource to serve humanity.

"The Management recognised the roles played by TASUED Enactus Club in projecting the Institution's name nationally and globally with the feat achieved at the 2020 competition at New Zealand," Prof. Banjo noted.

He enjoined them to replicate the feat at the international competition taking place at  Netherlands in October, 2021 and 
 donated the sum of N100,000:00k to the team.

In her response, the team leader, Miss Omiyale Afusat, on behalf of other members  thanked the University Management for their support, noting that  the achievement would not have been possible without the fatherly roles played by the club's Staff Adviser,  Dr Lawal; the Director, Centre for Human Rights and Gender Education (CHURGE) Prof. Abosede Ewumi, Director,Centre for Part time and External Programmes, Prof. Dele Shogbesan and  all other Deans in the University among others.

Miss Omiyale disclosed that the team made waste bins from used pet bottles,while it also made paper bags from the peal of bananas.

She warned that the survival of the world rest on the  human race adding that if care was not taken, plastic bottles would triple number of fishes in the ocean.

According to her, all hands must be on deck to fight against environmental degradation.

A letter of commendation was later presented to the team by the Acting Vice-Chancellor.

It would be recalled that a similar feat was achieved last year when  TASUED Enactus Club led by Mr Oluwatomilola Idris Mustapha defeated other participants across the world to clinch the 2020 Tei Kaihau Social Entrepreneur Award held at New Zealand.
