FUNAAB VICE-CHANCELLOR: A MAN IN THE GOOD BOOK OF HISTORY.
It is very rare to see my writings praising public servants especially someone in the position of the vice chancellor.
As a student of the prestigious University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), I was fascinated by the emergence of Professor Felix Kolawole Salako.
What brought about the fascination was the encomiums coming from the different divisions in the university campus from the lecturers, staff to the students pouring on the head of this fabulous personality.
Many a time, I was reminded about his previous leadership on campus as the two times deputy vice-chancellor in the university where his leadership capacity and prowess were explored and he evidently delivered and that gave me hope of good things to come in the coming years.
Immediately, after his emergence as vice-chancellor, he swept into action trying all his possible best through the school policy to remedy the academic calendar which has witnessed short and long accidents of circumstances.
Aside from this effort of his, he was always working assiduously to put up an excellent administrative procedure across boards.
Last year, I wrote an open letter highlighting the infrastructural problems within the campus.
Professor Salako asked his team to take me on a tour and show me what he was putting in place.
I saw several foundations of projects ongoing within the university.
FUNAAB has presently turned to construction sites. Everywhere you go within that campus you’ll see one or two buildings spewing up.
I wonder how the man gets money to build all these projects. Those projects are very big yet they are not abandoned.
The school management led by Professor Salako ensure every project is completed.
As a student and former critic, I am quite impressed.
It’s very glad tidings to the ear that the so-called lawns are now occupying fantastic buildings that beautify the school more and more.
It is on this record that I envision the emergence of Professor Salako as the minister representing the state after his tenure or a big position in the federal agency.
Professor Salako is a leader that do not only have a good personal relationship with people but a man of action.
In conclusion, I pray and solicit for more wisdom for him to continue to paddle the affairs of FUNAAB during these auspicious times.
