YABATECH Loses Lecturer After Battling Ailment


Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) Department of Mass Communication in the School of Liberal Studies, has lost one of its lecturers, Dr Mrs Olunike Asaolu, after battling an ailment


Dr Asaolu suffered from a strange illness which was undisclosed to some lecturers including students, but unfortunately, it subdued her state of health which the department realised and relieved her of her role as a project supervisor for students, enabling her to take adequate care of herself. 


Several pictures with sad captions praying for the deceased’s soul were shared on the department’s platforms and WhatsApp status, indicating that she died as a result of sickness.


A poster released by her family on April 18th, three days after her demise informed that Asaolu was born on April 17th, 1976, and died on the 15th of April 2022 at age 46 after a brief illness. She is survived by three children, a husband and other family members. 


It also contains that her Christian wake keep will behold on the 28th of at the Redeem Christian Church of God, at strong tower parish, 22b St. Finbbars college road, Pako, Akoka, Lagos, while the funeral service will be at the Redeem Christian Church of God, at strong tower parish, 22b St. Finbbars college road, Pako, Akoka, Lagos.


In a bid to express profound gratitude to her, the Student Executives of the department she taught, led by the Association’s president, Churchill Eguaoje, organised a candlelight event on the 19th of April, involving both past and present students who converged in front of SLS department to mourn the deceased.


Dr Asaolu, whom many students referred to as mummy, is fondly remembered for making sure that students succeeded in their academic pursuits and in their personal lives by providing professional guidance and practical advice.


Her pleasant attitude towards everyone around her and her outstanding prolificity in making sure that students perform well academically, qualify her as a rare gem in the heart of all MassCom students and her absence is surely a great loss.
