According to Prof. Ayobami, Tech-U made up its mind to produce and donate the masks as part of its personal effort to curb the outbreak of the deadly virus in the state. His words, “As a university, we believe that we are strategically placed to be part of the solution to the pandemic. That is why our Technical, Vocational, and Entrepreneurial Training Centre produced the masks.”
“Our face masks are different from others in terms of quality and durability. Most masks, you use them and dispose. But because we consider the fact that there is the need to help the generality of our people in conserving fund, we make the masks washable. You use it, you wash it and wear it again. As a Technical University, that is our vision and we thus thank the Ministry of Health and the government in general for always giving us the opportunity to demonstrate relevance and corporate social responsibility.”
