He noted that recent travails of the erudite professor and his overwhelming victory is further consolidated with this all important scientific project expected to expand knowledge of the coastal ecosystem in Nigeria.
“I wish to respectfully join the UNILAG family to congratulate my benefactor, my VC and renowned Professor of Botany, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, for emerging winner of the grant, and I have no doubt in my mind that he will drive the project to a logical conclusion and without blemish.
“The finger of God is upon the life of Prof Ogundipe, Grace and miracles shall continue to engulf him and his family because of his honesty, kind heart and visionary leadership.
“You excelled as Dean of Postgraduate Studies, you are now making waves as a triumphant Vice Chancellor and renowned researcher recognised globally due to your keen interest in the advancement of scientific knowledge. Bravo!
“I pray God to personally see your huge task to fruition while wishing you good health, more divine grace and longevity to enjoy the fruit of your labour, here on earth,” Oghenesivbe said.
