He added that Prof. Ninalowo’s deep understanding of the dynamics of Nigerian university system added turbo thrust to his leading Council under the supreme guidance of God to break traditional barriers to progress of the university.
According to the former Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, the LASU Community is aware that the climate which allowed Prof. Ninalowo’s Council to blaze trails would not have pervaded if he did not have Prof. Olanrewaju Adigun Fagbohun, SAN, as Vice Chancellor.
He described Prof. Fagbohun as a rare scholar and university administrator who is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best Vice Chancellor in the 36 year history of LASU, “…the Ninalowo – Fagbohun combination with divine guidance turned out to be the LASU elixir for success.” he affirmed.
