President of the TC Class of 91, Mr Kenneth Bamisaye said at the 30th-anniversary reunion and dedication of the Hall recently that the project, which was initially budgeted at N8 million, was constructed at over N20 million, adding that it was meant to address the challenge faced by students in writing external examinations.
He urged other alumni of the school and other stakeholders to support the school in other areas of need.
Speaking, the Senior Prefect, Class of 91, Engr Friday Abimbola, said “The foundation was laid four years ago and here we are to celebrate the fulfilment of God’s purpose for our great college.
“Construction of this edifice wouldn’t have been possible without God who used Otunba Eludayo Eluyemi (first president and convener, TC 1991 set), a visionary leader, to gather all TC 91 set.”
Secretary-General of Titcombe College Old Students Association (TCEOSA), Elder Stephen Aro, who represented the president, said the 1991 set is now the pacesetter among all others.
“Our dream and vision for TC are to have a university that shall be named after Rev. Tommy Titcombe,” he said.
Reacting, the Principal of Titcombe College, Elder Olufemi J. Onirinwa, said the set was the first among many to begin a building project in the compound.
