Date: 2017-09-07
The Board of Regents (BoR) of Landmark University, Omu Aran, Kwara State, has appointed a professor of Agricultural Mechanisation, Adeniyi Olayanju, as the third Vice-Chancellor of the university. His appointment took effect from Tuesday, August 1.

Until his appointment, Olayanju was the immediate past Dean, Student Affairs, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNNAB), where he rose to the zenith of his academic career with enviable professional accolades.

The development followed the expiration of the tenure of the immediate past VC Prof Aize Obayan by the proprietor of LMU- Living Faith Church Worldwide.

Also, the BoR appointed Dr Azubuike Ezenwoke as Registrar, who succeeds Dr John Izebere, whose appointment has expired.

According to a statement made available by the university, the information was disclosed by the Secretary to the board, Temidayo Eseyin, during the institution's fourth convocation.

Eseyin, a lawyer, noted that Olayanju emerged via a credible process that certified his competence with proofs in line with the agrarian mandate of the university.

In her short address, Obayan who won many awards as VC, and was instrumental to a series of MoU with notable institutions and bodies, appreciated God and the Chancellor Dr David Oyedepo for the privilege offered her to serve. She also appreciated the support of the management team andeveryone who worked hard to make her tenure a success.

Obayan sought support for Olayanju, whom she described him as a prolific and an individual who would validate the strategic plan and research agenda of the university.

Olayanju lauded the agrarian revolution of the university, noting its Africa's dignity reclamation agenda. According to him, the university is occupying a significant position on the global education road map because food security is a global concern.

Olayanju had forays into institutions and bodies, such as: the Nigerian Institute of Agricultural Engineers (NIAE); Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE); Nigerian Institute of Food Science and Technology (NIFST); and Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), among many others.
