OPINION POLL – Professor Balogun is a rare breed

The Director, IFSERAR, Prof. Segun Osinowo (L), giving his assessment of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwafemi Balogun (R).

The quality of leadership as exemplified by the incumbent Chief Executive of the University, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun, has rekindled the hope of many of the assurance of a bright future for the country.

The assertion was the unanimous summation of opinions on the character trait and leadership acumen of Professor Balogun, by a cross-section of dignitaries at his 57th Birthday thanksgiving service, held at the Vice-Chancellor’s Lodge at the GRA, Ibara, Abeokuta.

The Director of the Institute of Food Security, Environmental Resources and Agricultural Research (IFSERAR), Professor Segun Osinowo, making a comment on behalf of the UNAAB family, described the Vice-Chancellor as a visionary, who is always far ahead in his thinking, on the way forward for the University.

According to Professor Osinowo, “the quality of mind, determines the quality of the land”, reasoning that “since ‘rare breeds’ like Professor Balogun still abound in the country is an indication of a renewed hope for a brighter future for Nigeria”.

The IFSERAR Director said, “When he (Professor Balogun) first came, we didn’t know what to expect, now we consider ourselves fortunate to have him.

“At a critical time, God sent a messiah. It took over 20 years before we found a man like this, pray it does not take this long to have another”.

He said the Community will forever be appreciative of the Vice-Chancellor’s deeds, while his various achievements will be immortalised.

Professor Osinowo stressed further, “Because of your industry, because of your vision, many children in the country have the opportunity of education. We know the carrying capacity of the University before you came and what it is now”.

In his own assertion, the representative of the Governing Council, Dr. Solomon Oladiti, commended the Vice-Chancellor for his humility. He described him as “a humble person who extends due regards and courtesies without compromising firmness of his strong character”.

Dr. Oladiti commended the quality advice and counsel of the Vice-Chancellor to the Governing Council, noting that the quality addition to manpower as demonstrated by Professor Balogun, was exemplary.

The Chief Medical Director of the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, Dr. Sotiloye spoke of Professor Balogun as an accomplished teacher and mentor of many great achievers, like himself, that are scattered across the country.

The University’s Dean of Student Affairs, Professor Samuel Oluwalana, could not help vying-off his Closing Prayer, to comment on the Vice-Chancellor as “very compassionate, very merciful”.

Professor Oluwalana stunned not a few, when he disclosed that “the Vice-Chancellor is currently paying the school fees of not less than 50 indigent students of the University”.

SSANU LECTURE: Don Decries Rate of Non-Communicable Diseases

Participants at the 4th Lecture Series of SSANU. Inset, Guest Lecturer, Dr. Christopher Adesina, delivering the Lecture

The Guest Lecturer at the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (UNAAB) 4th Lecture Series of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Professor Charles Olutayo Alebiosu, has attributed the sharp rise in Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Nigeria to the socio-economic transition in the country.

The Professor of Medicinal Science made this disclosure while delivering a Lecture titled: Non-Communicable Diseases (Hypertension, Diabetes and others):  A Ticking Time Bomb.

According to Professor Alebiosu, the nation’s transition from rural agrarian communities to urban industrialized cities has prompted the adoption of unhealthy lifestyle and diets such as less physical activities, pollution from industries as well as tobacco and excessive alcohol intake, which he attributed to be major risk factors of NCDs.

Professor Alebiosu of the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OSUTH), Sagamu, represented by Dr. Christopher Adesina, highlighted NCDs to include cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, coronary artery dysfunction and stroke.  Others are diabetes, stress, cancer, obesity, blindness, among others.

He hinted that hypertension remained the world’s leading silent killer, with a warning that any rise in human blood pressure above 140/90 mark, should be taken seriously, as such is usually indicative of hypertension.

Professor Alebiosu noted that hypertension could be hereditary and easily triggered by a high salt or saturated fat diet, obesity, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption as well as low potassium and vegetable diet.

The Guest Lecturer admonished people to take heed of the warning by the World Health Organization which projected that between 2006 and 2015, death due to NCDs (half of which will be due to cardiovascular diseases) would increase by 17% while death from infectious diseases, nutritional deficiencies and maternal conditions would decrease by 3%.

He also warned on the potential dangers of diabetes which he said could also be hereditary and common in people who are overweight, above 45 years old and physically inactive, while observing that stress and depression usually resulted into suicidal tendencies.

He admonished participants at the Lecture to imbibe the practice of a regular medical check- up and promote healthy life style by exercising, consuming diets low in salt and cholesterol and checking their blood pressure at every opportunity.

Earlier in his Welcome Address, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun commended the executives of SSANU on the theme of this year’s lecture, which adequately articulated a genuine concern for the well-being of their members.

Professor Balogun said that high poverty rate, low standard of living and ignorance amongst Nigerians have contributed significantly to the country’s mortality upswing.

The Vice-Chancellor, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Development, Professor Segun Lagoke, also lauded the initiative of the Union in organizing free medical tests for their members and therefore called on other Unions to take a cue from the gesture.

Professor Balogun expressed Management’s appreciation of the robust relationship with SSANU, describing the Union as worthy partner in progress.

The SSANU Chairman, (UNAAB Branch), Comrade Abdussobur Salaam in his address, stated that the Union’s Lecture Series was conceived with a view of enlightening its members and the entire University community on various aspects of life.

He noted that the choice of this year’s topic was informed by the analysis of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which put the probability of a Nigerian not attaining the 40-year mark at 37.4%.

According to him, “the breakdown of our health institutions due to poor funding and lack of facilities have led to our  hospitals not performing up to par in terms of service delivery”.

Comrade Salaam therefore called on Nigerians to assist in detonating the ticking time-bomb by voting for responsive, responsible, accountable and dedicated leaders, in the next election.

The Lecture was attended by the National President of SSANU, who also doubles as the Deputy National President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Barrister Promise Adewusi, the Ogun State Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr. Adewumi Alayaki, the Acting Registrar, Mr. Adeleke Adeboye. Other dignitaries included the Acting Bursar, Mr. Moses Ilesanmi, represented by the Director of Final Account, Mr. Emmanuel Yemtet, the Director, Internal Audit, Mrs Taiwo Aroyeun and Executive members of other Unions.

Librarians Commend UNAAB VC

University Vice - Chancellor

The Committee of University Librarians of Nigerian Universities (CULNU) has commended the Vice-Chancellor, University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (UNAAB) Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun for his foresightedness and commitment to the development of library.

The University Librarian, Lagos State University, Dr. Adetoun Idowu on behalf of members of CULNU gave the commendation at the 90th Bi-Annual meeting of CULNU held at the Senate Chamber, UNAAB.

Dr. Idowu described the Vice-Chancellor as a friend of Librarians who has exhibited his belief in the development of the University Library through his inestimable contributions.

The University Librarian lauded the Vice-Chancellor for the beautiful edifice of UNAAB’s library which she described as breath taking and a beautiful place to visit.

It has been observed that the dynamism of a University could be adjudged by the state of its library.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun who gave this insight, described University libraries as the heart of a healthy and virile University.

Professor Balogun was speaking at the 90th Bi-Annual meeting of the Committee of University Librarians of Nigerian Universities (CULNU) hosted by the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta at its Senate Chamber.

Represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Development, Professor Segun Lagoke, Prof. Balogun reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to the development of the various University Libraries, pointing out that the construction and furnishing of the library for its Institute of Human Resources Development (INHURD) had just been completed.

He added that the University currently maintains three functional College Libraries in the Colleges of Veterinary Medicine, Engineering and Natural Sciences.

Reiterating the importance attached to library by the University, the Vice-Chancellor said the University’s central Library was the first main building on the Campus and it is one of the centrally located and prominent buildings in the University.

According to Professor Balogun, the development of College Libraries, which are centrally administered, was necessitated by the increase in student’s population in the last three years, stressing that the College Libraries provide local study points for the students.

He said the University’s library is ICT-compliant with a facility for e-library and a 200-Seater Computer Laboratory, while another 500-Seater Laboratory is under construction.

Commenting on funding of the University Library, Professor Balogun disclosed that the Management adhered strictly to the NUC 10% Library Development Fund (LDF) stipulation and also commended the Educational Tax Fund for its support, which he said had improved access to quality teaching and research materials in the higher educational institutions.

Earlier, in his Welcome Address, the University’s Librarian and Chairman CULNU, Mr. Abayomi Agboola, said the Committee came into existence about 45 years ago with membership in 104 Universities across the country.

Mr. Agboola assured members of an exhaustive deliberation, as issues affecting the running of Nigerian Libraries and the recent FGN-ASUU agreement would be addressed.

INHURD Gets 2 New Buses

Presentation of  the key of the luxury  bus by MANCOT chairman, Dr. Atungu (in white shirt) to Director INHURD, Dr. Taofiq Salisu.

As part of efforts to ease transportation problem at the University’s Institute of Human Resources and Development (INHURD), the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun has allocated two brand new buses to the institute.

The Chairman, Management Committee on Transportation (MANCOT) Dr. Jonathan Atungwu, who performed the handing-over of the vehicles on behalf of Management informed that specially-trained drivers had also been assigned to drive the buses.

Dr. Atungwu pointed out that the vehicles were among the seven newly procured Ashok Leyland buses from India and that the suppliers had assisted in training selected drivers towards ensuring optimum performance of the buses.

The Chairman enlightened that the buses were still under the one-year contract warranty, as such any technical challenge within the period would be referred to the suppliers.

He however, disclosed that only one bus would be released to the Institute in the main time, pending the arrival of the Federal Government-Assisted Marcopolo bus in the University.

In his response, the Director, INHURD, Dr. Taofiq Salisu thanked the Management for its magnanimity, saying the release of the buses was timely, given the rise in the population of students in the Institute.

Dr. Salisu described the Vice-Chancellor as a visionary leader who proffers solutions even before difficulties emerge.  He also commended MANCOT for its untiring contributions to the transportation facet of the University.

The Director advocated for the injection of more vehicles in the transportation pool of the Institute and called for the repairs of its access roads, which he noted would reduce the maintenance cost on the vehicles.

PROFESSOR BALOGUN IS 57

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun adds another year to his highly meritorious, colourful and active life as he turns 57 tomorrow, October 19, 2010.

Professor Balogun assumed the leadership of the University as its fourth substantive Vice-Chancellor over three years ago, after a fulfilling academic career at the University of Ilorin.

As the Chief Servant of UNAAB, his name has become household, doubtlessly synonymous with discipline, prudence, moral and academic excellence.

The Vice-Chancellor is reputed to be the architect of the ‘new improved’ UNAAB, given his penchant for a radically massive infrastructural and academic development, transforming the University to be one

of the leading higher educational institutions in Africa, with favourable global reckoning.

A workaholic, Professor Balogun is currently on an official tour of the United States, having been nominated alongside eight selected Vice-Chancellors in Nigeria on an international Visitor Leadership

Programme (VOLVIS), by the US Department of State.

Perhaps, the biggest birthday package to be received by the iconic Vice-Chancellor is the conferment of the Fellowship Award on him tomorrow by the Agricultural Society of Nigeria.

His radiant spouse, Professor Mrs. Elizabeth Abidemi Balogun will stand-in for him to receive the prestigious award at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

Members of the University have however been resolute in ensuring that a befitting birthday ceremony was organized for Professor Balogun with a tentative date set for Tuesday, October 26, 2010.

Professor Balogun made this disclosure while declaring open the University’s 14th Summer Course in Practical Biotechnology titled “Polymerase Chain Reaction, Protein Analytical Techniques and their Application” at the Senate Chamber.

According to Professor Balogun, Biotechnology is germane to the actualization of food security, graduate training and research work.

Speaking on the role of UNAAB in the development of biotechnology in the Country, the Vice-Chancellor, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Professor Chryss Onwuka pointed out that the workshop was the 14th since the University’s Biotechnology Centre was establishment in 1999 and had been consistent in impacting the gains of biotechnology both locally and internationally.

Professor Balogun, who noted that the Workshop had over the years attracted participants and resource persons from within and outside the Country, enjoined participants to replicate the training received in their various laboratories and researches for the advancement of the Country.

Corroborating the Vice-Chancellor, the Director of the University’s Biotechnology Centre, Professor Okanlawon Onagbesan, in his Welcome Address noted that biotechnology has become a household name in academic, research and industry

He stated that through biotechnology, techniques had been developed to produce rare and medicinally valuable molecules to change hereditary traits of plants and animals, to diagnose diseases, to produce chemicals and purify the environment.

According to him, biotechnology has great impact in the fields of health care, food and agriculture, environmental protection and humanities.

The International resource person, Professor Jim Starr of the Texas A & M University, United States of America added that the Course is designed to provide participants the basic tools for the practice of biotechnology.

… As Pensioner Heralds VC’s Birthday

The impending 57th Birthday of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun, is already being heralded with accolades and warm compliments.

Though as at press time, information are still sketchy as to the form the birthday, which is for 19th October, will take, however, the former Chairman of UNAAB Pensioners, Pastor Abimbola Aboluwarin is already playing the role of a forerunner.

Pastor Aboluwarin, in a 3-Page Goodwill message sent to UNAAB Bulletin, described the upcoming event as deserving of celebration by Prof. Balogun, having impacted immensely on the development of the University since he assumed office.

Pastor Aboluwarin said it will amount  to  a disservice by members of the University community, particularly, the pensioners, not to duly recognise and appreciate the efforts of Professor Balogun, as a distinguished Vice-Chancellor of the University.

He said the Vice-Chancellor had bettered the lots of pensioners, saying, “specifically, pensioners in UNAAB will never forget him (Prof. Balogun), for all he did for them”.

He observed that “there had been development in UNAAB by the past three Vice-Chancellors and an Acting Vice-Chancellor before Professor O. O. Balogun.  However, what we are witnessing in this great University under him is unthought-of, unprecedented and beyond expectation”.

Given his unparalleled achievements, Pastor Aboluwarin prayed God to compensate Professor Balogun, with higher calling, either nationally or at the global level

DVC (Academic), Prof. Chryss Onwuka

Results of the completed batch of the on-going Second Semester, 2009/2010 Examination are ready and being processed for release.

Students of the University were assured that the release of the results would be timely as some of them would be conducted through the e-Examination format.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Prof. Chryss Onwuka gave the assurance during his assessment visits to Examination Centres and later in a chat with the UNAAB Bulletin.

Prof. Onwuka, who described the conduct of the on-going examination as unique, attributed its peculiarity to the fact that “the results are ready almost immediately after the exam, unlike previous ones where you manually marked the scripts for some weeks before results are ready”.

Professor Onwuka said the results would have been posted, but for the analogue part that required more careful processing.

Besides, he disclosed that the University also successfully designed measures to ensure that students who were indisposed and on admission at the University’s Health Centre were able to write their analogue and e-exams.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor commended the security devices and other logistic deployed for the smooth conduct of the examination.

Corps Members Charged on Nation Building

Out-going Corps members pledging their loyalty to their fatherland, while singing the national anthem

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members have been charged to bring their experiences during the national service to bear on their future private and official conducts, for the advancement of their immediate environment and the nation at large.

The Vice-Chancellor, University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, UNAAB, Prpfessor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun gave the charge while sending forth the 2009/2010 Batch C corp members that served in the institution.

Represented by the Acting Registrar, Mr. Adeleke Adeboye, Professor Balogun declared that the task of nation building was a collective responsibility of every Nigerian, which should not be deferred as an exclusive concern of the nation’s leadership.

He admonished the corps members to realise the enormity of the challenges ahead, stressing that they would be required to deplore all the experiences they garnered in the course of their national service into building a better society for the present and upcoming generations.

Professor Balogun warned that except the experiences were genuinely deployed and fully utilised, all  the human and capital resources that were invested in their service would not only be wasted, but also counter-productive.

He commended the outgoing corps members for serving the University with diligence and forthrightness, stressing that the University
would not on its part relent in sustaining the enabling environment for the youth corps members on national service.

Also speaking, the Assistant Director of NYSC in charge of Common Service, Mrs. Tayo Samuel who represented the State Director, thanked the University Management for its regular support to corps members and the NYSC at large.

She said NYSC had deliberately been posting committed and brilliant corps members to the University in order to increase value-addition on both sides.

Mrs. Samuel, however urged the Management of the University to increase the monetary allowance for corps members and also provide logistic supports, including accommodation and vehicle to pick them from the Orientation Camp and to take them back, at the end of the service.

UNAAB VC Tasks Secretaries On ICT

Representative of the Vice-Chancellor, the DVC, Academic, Prof. Chryss Onwuka addressing participants, with the  Acting Registrar, Mr. Adeleke Adeboye to his immediate right.

The Vice-Chancellor, University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, UNAAB, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun has challenged Secretarial Staff in the institution to avail themselves of the expertise in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in order to be distinguished as reputed professionals and to enhance efficient service delivery.

Professor Balogun who spoke at the 3rd In-House Workshop of the University Secretarial Staff Association (USSA), UNAAB Branch, titled, ‘Electronic Document Information Techniques’, called on the Secretaries to embrace the opportunities offered by the workshop and to regularly update with current professional techniques, particularly as dictated by ICT.

Represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Prof. Chryss Onwuka, Prof. Balogun noted that Secretarial staff played prominent roles in the goal attainment of any organisation.


He however warned Secretaries, not to fall victim of the bandwagon effect, but to always strive for uniqueness by standing out from the crowd through steady acquisition of the ICT knowledge.

The Vice-Chancellor, who recalled some deliberate efforts of the University’s Management at improving the competence and efficiency levels of the Secretaries, reiterated
that more capacity building programmes had been further planned for them in order to improve on their efficiency.

Performing his first public function in his capacity as the Acting Registrar, Mr. Adeleke Adeboye, charged the Secretarial staff to uphold the principle of diligence, discipline, decency and decorum in the discharge of their duties.

He described as erroneous, the impression that 8.30am was the official resumption time in the University, pointing out that the normal resumption schedule was 8:00a.m, adding that Management graciously extended it by 30 minutes out of magnanimity and in consideration of the distance of the University to town.

Adeboye disclosed that as part of efforts to ensure punctuality and increase efficiency by staff, the incumbent administration is fine-tuning arrangements for Staff Quarters, while the University’s Staff School would soon be relocated to the Permanent Site.

Earlier in her Welcome Address, the USSA Chairperson, Mrs. A. O. Arowosegbe, expressed the readiness of her members to take up the challenges of positively contributing their quota and keying-in to the development initiative of the University.
