Oyekanmi maintained “that the Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) established by the Staff members of the Institution and financed through donations from their salaries”.
He, Oyekanmi explained that the first philanthropic gesture by the Foundation was the feeding of the less priviledged in seven communities around the Institution which are Esa-Oke, Ìjẹ̀bú-Jẹ̀ṣà, Ilóko-Ìjẹ̀sà, Ijeda, Ìwòye-Ìjẹ̀sà, Esa- Odo, Ère-Ìjẹ̀sà and Etí-Òní during the Covid- 19 lock down experienced last year 2020.
