FUNAAB gets new VC, Registrar, Bursar

The Governing Council of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Ogun State has approved the appointment of a 56 year-old Professor of Soil Physics, Felix Kolawole Salako as the institution’s Vice-Chancellor.
It also approved the appointments of Dr. Hakeem Adekola and Mr. Chukwunwike Ezekpeazu as Registrar and Bursar respectively.
In a statement yesterday, the institution’s Directorate of Public Relations quoting the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Dr Aboki Zawha, said the new appointments were guided by rules, regulations and the Act establishing the university.
New Telegraph recalled that the appointment of a substantive VC came about four months after the expiration of five-year tenure of former Vice Chancellor, Prof Olusola Oyewole, who on May 23, 2017 handed over to Prof Ololade Enikuomehin who subsequently served in acting capacity.
Until his appointment, the 56-year-old Salako was FUNAAB’s Deputy Vice Chancellor (Development).
The VC-designate, who was born in 1961, hails from Ibadan, Oyo State.
Salako, a Professor of Soil Physics in the Department of Soil Science and Land Management, attended Igbobi College, Lagos.
He later proceeded to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka where he obtained B.A Agric (Hons) and M.Sc degrees in Soil Sciences in 1983 and 1986 respectively and later bagged his Ph.D in Soil Science from the University of Ibadan in 1997.

Salako joined the services of FUNAAB in 2000 as a Senior Lecturer and moved up the academic ladder to become a Professor in 2006.
Our correspondent gathered that the new Registrar-designate, Adekola, was until his appointment the Deputy Registrar in charge of Senate Affairs at the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ago-Iwoye.
The Bursar-designate, Ezekpeazu, who was born in 1960, was a former Bursar at the National Mathematical Centre, Abuja and visiting Bursar on sabbatical at the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia State.
Zawha said, “we, as a Council were guided by provisions of the Act, the rules of the university and the Federal Character. We, as a Council decided to set up a Committee that conducted the screening of all applicants and afterwards mandated the Technical Committee to see whether the applicants complied with advertisement about the position they applied for.
“The Technical Committee came up with good list and presented it to the Selection Board. Recommendations were made to the Council and we approved the list and other recommendations that were submitted.”
