The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Kayode Adebowale, commended Infinix for their dedication to improving the educational infrastructure and for their ongoing support in fostering a technologically proficient student body. He said – “Infinix has made a commendable choice by investing in the University of Ibadan, Nigeria’s premier university. This centre will benefit all stakeholders, and we are committed to maintaining it to ensure its sustainability. We anticipate further collaborations, including providing scholarships for financially challenged yet talented students”.
