The AMACOS ’95 PRO assured that with the arrangements already put in place by the Anniversary Committee, the event is going to be historic, epic and momentous.
He said, “Our 25th Anniversary promises to be an eventful one. Apart from providing an opportunity for us to recognise some of our lecturers and also give back to our Alma mater, especially the Department of Mass Communication, which is our alumni department, the Anniversary event will serve as a great reunion for members of the Association across the world who have not seen one another for the past 25 years.
“Old faces shall see again. Old friends shall meet again. The big daddies and mummies shall have the opportunity to reenact the fond memories of the past.
“No doubt, our 25th Anniversary is going to be august and golden! It is going to be more than just an anniversary, but a melting pot for big daddies and mummies who, 25 years ago, parted ways only to meet again in the same Rock City!”
