Gbajabiamila Expresses Sadness Over Death Of Prof Ibidapo-Obe

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has expressed sadness over the death of a former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Prof. Oyewusi Ibidapo-Obe.
In a condolence statement on Monday signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker mourned the death of the former UNILAG VC.

He said Prof. Ibidapo-Obe, who died on Sunday at the age of 71, was one patriotic Nigerian who gave his best toward the development of his country.

The Speaker said Prof. Ibidapo-Obe’s death is a great loss not just to academia but also to the country in general.

Gbajabiamila recalled with nostalgia how Prof. Ibidapo-Obe, a one-time chairman of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, made remarkable strides during his term as the VC of UniLag.

Prof. Ibidapo-Obe, who also later served as the VC of the Federal University Ndufu Alike, Ikwo (FUNAI), Ebonyi State, was until his death the chairman and pro-chancellor of First Technical University, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Gbajabiamila said his thoughts and prayers are with Prof. Ibidapo-Obe’s family at this difficult moment, praying God to grant his soul eternal rest.

The Speaker also condoled with the UNILAG Vice-chancellor Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, staff, students of the institution, and the entire university community over the great loss.
