EASTER MESSAGE BY PROFESSOR OLUGBENGA IGE, VICE CHANCELLOR, AAUA
It has pleased the Almighty God to allow you and I to witness another Easter celebration. As you are aware, Easter is symbolic as it marks the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ which occurs three days after his crucifixion.
I, therefore, on behalf of the Management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, congratulate the entire staff and students of the University on this unique occasion of celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
As Easter commemorates the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, who demonstrated selfless love by yielding to the divine will when he laid down His life to reconcile us back to our maker, I encourage you all to imbibe and display Christ’s ideals of love, selflessness, perseverance and compassion in all your endeavours.
There is no better time than this challenging period to demonstrate the Christ-like love to one another by sharing whatever the Lord has provided for us.
Once again, I warmly rejoice with all members of the University community.
I wish you happy Easter celebration.

Rector’s Easter Felicitations: Let us radiate good virtues.
I seize this auspicious moment to warmly congratulate and felicitate with our Christain Brothers and Sisters in Federal Polytechnic Ile-Oluji, Ondo State and Nigeria at large on the observance of this year’s Easter celebration.
The humble birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, His teachings and subsequent travails and death should be a lesson for all of us that, there is a season for everything and that whatever we do while on earth would be remembered after our passage.
Let us in conformity with Christ’s teachings, be submissive to God Almighty, radiate love, peace , humility and be a source of happiness, rather than sorrow, to the less privileged and the needy in our Society.
Let us also seize this occasion to pray for our dear Country, Nigeria, to overcome its present challenges for the good of all and sundry.
Once again, accept my warm assurances and felicitations on this Easter Celebration. God bless All.

Calvary’s greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to all Christian faithful in OAUSTECH and Nigeria as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I, Professor Temi Emmanuel Ologunorisa, Vice-Chancellor, Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH), Okitipupa, Ondo State, Nigeria, on behalf of the Senate, Management, Staff and Students of our great Institution, felicitate with all Christians in the University community and in Nigeria as we celebrate the Easter.
I enjoin all and sundry to imbibe the lessons of the just-concluded lenten season, in commemoration of the forty days fast of our Saviour, which began on Ash Wednesday and ended on Holy Saturday.
I appeal passionately to all OAUSTECH staff to make sacrifices in order to make it great, in the same way I appeal to all Nigerians to do so to make our dear country, Nigeria, great.
Knowing that the Easter marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave and symbolizes victory over sin, sickness and Satan, I pray that the RESURRECTION POWER OF JESUS CHRIST be yours and your household to make you victorious in all spheres of life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Happy Easter to you and your family.
