The Alumni President, Mr. Buraimo Saheed Olaiya declared the congress opened by 10:20 am with a welcome address, having earlier presided over the recitation of National and TASUED Anthem. This was followed by stewardship, council report, state of the association, 4th distinguished Alumni lecture, scholarship scheme reports and chapters report. Similarly, the national financial secretary Pastor Olukade Ganiyu rendered the financial report of the association.

However, the congress adopted the reports as presented and resolved as follows:

1. The Congress commended the national President and his executives for their steadfastness, commitment, and focus, adding that their achievements are noticeable despite the seeming financial constraint among others.

2. The congress admonished members to pay their dues to strengthen the association and her statutory developmental roles in the University.

3. The President/Alumni representative on council reported some of the council activities under the leadership of Prof. Bamiro. The congress commended the council and appealed for more commitment to make the University one of the best in the country. Consequently, a vote of confidence was passed on the President for his true and robust representation.

4. The immediate past electoral committee headed by Mr. Adeleke Wasiu was dissolved. Consequently, the following members were nominated and ratified by the Congress as electoral committee members in pursuant to section 9 sub section 2&5 of the Alumni constitution:

i. Mr. Ugochukwu Okonkwo – Chairman
ii. Miss. Ogungbe Rasheedat – Vice Chairman
iii. Mr. Aina Taliat – Secretary
iv. Mr. Afeez Quadri- Assistant Secretary
v. Mr. Lawal Olukayode – Financial Secretary
vi. Mr. Sanusi Azeez – Public Relation Officer
viii. Mr. Jagun Hakeem – Welfare Officer

5. The Congress upheld section 9 sub section 19 of the Alumni Constitution which stipulated that election must be conducted on Chapter basis and it also mandated the electoral committee to strictly adhere to constitutional provisions in carrying out her assignments. The Congress also appealed to aspirants in the forthcoming elections to conduct themselves peacefully.

6. The Congress observed that members are eager to undertake their postgraduate programme in the University but some are discouraged by unfair treatment and lack of courtesy regularly visited on them by some staff of the University. Some section which relate to matters concerning Alumni members are more culpable. The President was therefore enjoined to relate with the appropriate authority towards addressing the issue.

7. The Congress showered encomium on the University management led by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluyemisi Obilade for the strides of development in the University and her supports for the peace and progress of Alumni. The Congress however appealed to her to remain focus in her strong determination to take TASUED to a greater height.

8. A closing remark was given by Mr. Oyekanmi Abdullahi, the national General Secretary. The Congress was brought to an end at around 12:33pm with a closing prayer said by Mr. Falola.
