From Adesola Ikulajolu, AAUA
The students of Adekunle-Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko have held an historical photo exhibition.
The event was part of the activities to mark the 2019 annual press week.
The exhibition was held at the Department of Mass Communication, where over 500 historical photographs and some artifacts were displayed.
According to the founder of OldNaija, Mr Omipidan Teslim, the aim of the exhibition which featured rally, games and quiz, old school songs, red carpet session and lots more,was to teach Nigerians history in a non-boring way.
In an interview with the founder, he noted that it was the first of its kind in the institution. He also appreciated the Mass Communication Department and other sponsors who made the historical event a reality.
“This is OldNaija’s maiden exhibition and we are glad it’s a memorable one. We say a big thank you to our partner, National Association of Mass Communication Students (NAMACOS) and our sponsors, Dr. Aweni Adams, Mr. Rafiu Onalaja and Sa’eed Omipidan of Nadratan Designs Inc.”
Omipidan, an award-winning Poet and lover of history added that, “the knowledge of history is fast depleting in our society and if it continues, there will not be a single Nigerian youth that will know when Nigeria became a republic.”
He also made it known that the historical exhibition will be taken to other universities in Nigeria because the mission of OldNaija is to teach as many Nigerians, the history of their country.
