A Professor of Plants Breeding and Genetics, Olusola Kehinde, has been appointed Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Development) of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB).
The appointment is contained in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Monday by the institution’s Registrar, Dr Bola Adekola.
According to the registrar, Kehinde took over from Prof. Clement Adeofun, whose tenure ended last week.
He said that Kehinde impacted the university positively during his tenure as the Dean of College of Plant Science and Crop Production.
“He carved a landmark niche of reference till date as Director of Institute for Human Resources Development.
“His monumental contributions to the development of the university soared following his election into the university’s governing council.
“He is bringing his experience, cutting across the university mandate and core values, to bear largely on the institution’s quest for a world-class status under the leadership of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Felix Salako,” the registrar said.
