Meet Nigerian Youngest Vice-Chancellor

A young Nigerian man, Olasubomi Olopade has announced proudly that he’s now the Vice-Chancellor of Bowen University after a recent election.

He shared photos of himself after the election on LinkedIn page along with a message basking in the euphoria of his big feat. Olopade assumed the position of Vice-Chancellor on Wednesday, June 16, after winning the A Day Vice Chancellor contest.

”Wednesday, 16th of June, 2022 was a significant day in my life and in the life of Bowen University I was privileged to be the Vice Chancellor of Great Bowen University for the day, having won the A Day Vice Chancellor contest. The process involved registration, cognitive assessment tests and PowerPoint presentation on an alumni and a final election for the top three.

I wasn’t alone as I was assisted by my two Deputy Vice Chancellors, Ibukunoluwa Areo and James Joshua. Together and collaboratively we administered the running of the University.

These pictures tell a story. I started my day with a special breakfast, guard inspection, assumption at the office, presided over Batch B matriculation ceremony and addressed the congregant of students and staff. Thereafter I had T.V, radio and newspaper interviews.

Meetings with Principal officers also followed. Thereafter, I paid courtesy visits to statutory places and Directorates of the University and I penned my signatures to a plethora of documents involving funds disbursement.

I rounded my day at 9pm, having had a meeting with the Student Body and a few guests who came beckoning on their Vice Chancellor.

I wouldn’t have done this without the help of God, Parents, friends, and tagged mentors whose constant admonitions has kept me going. Specifically, I am grateful to my alumni mentor, Onyinye Enyioha whose help and support enabled my access to the finals….”
