Sunshine Standard magazine, has conferred an award of ‘Outstanding Pillar of Education/Role Model in Ondo State’ on the Vice-Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, AAUA, Prof. Olugbenga Ige.
Prof. Ige was honoured at this year’s edition of the Public Lecture/Award programme of the Sunshine Standard Magazine held on Sunday, December 19, 2021, in Akure.
The Publisher of the Magazine, Mr. Oludaisi Adetarami, said, we periodically organize public lectures and give awards to very outstanding individuals and institutions whose impact have been very remarkable and vastly different in scale in terms of adding value to society and our shared humanity.”
He descried Prof. Ige as a notable academic and administrator par excellence who has not only sustained the culture of academic excellence in AAUA but also breaking new grounds that would soon make the University a reference point in Nigeria’s academic circle.
Responding, Prof. Ige, thanked the publisher for the honour, saying it was an indication his modest efforts in the education sector were being noticeable and appreciated.
He said the honour would boost his overall commitment to the development of education and the humanity in general.
The new award comes barely two months after the Hero Magazine International honoured Prof. Ige, with an award of Ondo State Pillar of Education of the Year 2020 about two months ago.
