BRIEF STORY - The Institute

For Several decades, attempts were made at consummating OR professional body without success not until late 2004 when another attempt was initiated by Lawal Abdufatai Oyeyemi (Statistician, Marketer, Tax and Management Practitioner) that led to establishment of Institute for Operations Research statutorily recognized under the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on 4th July, 2006.

The initiation was in collaboration with the following individuals Adeyemi I.A. (marketer), Lawal R.T. (Mrs.) an educationist, Alabi O.S also an educationist and Jimoh R.A. a psychologist. This Institute commenced operation on Tuesday 3rd January, 2006 and held its first membership induction ceremony for thirty-seven members on Saturday, 12th august, 2006.

A similar remarkable attempt was when Prof. Funsho Akingbade, who became the first President/Chairman of Council of this Institute formed an Operational Research Club at the University of Lagos, Nigeria in 1980. The Institute is a springboard for professionals in OperationS Research in Nigeria to interact, develop the profession into career path and advance its practice, method and application for improved systems performance in Nigeria.

It is also an avenue for training people to become professional researchers and serve the scientific and professional needs of the institution they serve and the society at large.
