Engr Dr Augustus Oluyemi Oke, Rector, Osun State College of Technology, Esa-Oke, (2001-2002) and (2012 to July 24th 2017) has submitted his letter of retirement from the service of the College with effect from 24th July, 2017 having attained Sixty-five (65) years of retirement age.

The Man of God, gentle, amiable, unassuming, pragmatic, hard-working and focused Rector, joined the service of Osun State College of Technology in 1993 as one of the Pioneer Staff that voluntarily left The Polytechnic Ibadan to join the Pioneer Rector, Prof Olu Odeyemi in the nurturing of the new Institution from its State of infancy to Adulthood.

Engr Dr Augustus Oluyemi Oke was the first Head, Department of Mechanical Engineering, the first Dean, Students Affairs, the third Deputy Rector. He was Ag. Rector in January, 2001. His second coming on January 11th 2012 was like that of the Biblical Moses to take the children of Israel across the Red sea. He was later confirmed as a substantive Rector of the College till July 24th, 2013.

The College witnessed landmark achievements during his second coming with additional programmes accredited by the National Board for Technical Education, Kaduna. There was the construction of some structures such as: Library/Administrative Complex; Faculty of Applied Sciences Building; Science Laboratory Complex; Mechanical Engineering Complex; Faculties of Management Science Offices; Central Store for the College; and the renovation of classrooms in the Faculties of Management Science; Applied Sciences; Environmental and Engineering; two lecture theaters; Multipurpose Hall; Owa-Omiran Hall; two blocks in the Prelim Village; and Funso Ishola hall to mention but a few.

It was during Engr. Okeís time that the Alumni Association of the College started visiting the College to celebrate the Institution every two years since 2012. Each time they came, they donate sportsí equipment, fans etc and in 2016 during their last visit, they laid the foundation of the first indoor Sports Complex for the College.

Join us to thank God for this man of history who has transformed the College to a befitting Campus for the world to see.

As he prepares to retire from service, we appreciate his enviable service to the College with members of Management and wish him well in his future endeavours.

We hope to produce a Special Edition of Great OSCOTECH News for this man of history very soon.
