I'm trying to excite tertiary education institutions in Nigeria to explore the alumni option in funding their needs. Any thoughts and help?
Thank you very much my friend for your words of encouragement. It means much to me as well as the methodology you suggested. I assure you that this idea of mine has consumed me to the degree that I feel that I owe it to my country to actualise it, and I will do my very best. Africa needs to look inward and harness its latent richness which to my mind is her only way get there. She must pull herself by her own bootstraps and then fly. Romanticism is one attribute Africa has in great abundance. Those of you from the West cannot begin to understand it. Unfortunately, there is also ineptitude on the part of the majority of our pollicy makers who need to be jolted to life's realities and to competition from abroad. Wel will get there though! We only require a little hands-up (not hand-down) from the developed world.

Thanks for your insight. What you said can quite correct if the Alumni are left unorganised and uninformed. If there can be formed, a focused and dedicated Alumni Association which could network alumni members and create a worthwhile experience of mutual benefit for both the University and its graduands coupled with a painless annual dues, it is my belief that many alumni will be interested in taking part thereof. You and I know that we would love it if the University we attended rose to become a world class place of learning as result of our collective effort to bolster research, study and character achieved through our alumni participation. Giving generously of painlessly to alma mater may not be the most altruistic thing we have ever done because at length it adds something known as "degree equity" to our certificates. Finally, during this of era of social networking and connection, when we make conscious efforts to seek out our former school mates using extant social media, and seeing that we belong to various charity organisations like the Rotary Club et al for altruistic purposes, why can we not support our alma maters? Give it some more thought and say something positive about it to help me, pls. I have become committed to it.
