The Asagba of Asaba and the Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Obi (Prof.) Chike Edozien, did not mince words in commending the purposeful leadership qualities of the outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun.
The Asagba gave his commendation while commissioning the Asagba Joseph Edozien Road, one of the newly-constructed roads, named after him by the University Management.
The 1.5km road spans the junction of the Post-graduate School to the Farm Centre, providing access to several facilities of the University.
“I congratulate the construction firm for completing the road on schedule and the University Management for using the funds properly,” the Asagba noted as he unveiled the commemorative plaque.
The Royal Father who also commissioned the ultra-modern Chancellor’s Lodge, could not hide his admiration for the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun for his giant strides.
The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba (Dr.) Adedotun Gbadebo, at the occasion also commissioned another road, leading from Isolu (second University Gate) to the Farm Centre, named after him by the University.
