The authorities of the University of Ilorin have approved N4.5m for three of the institution’s academics.
The school Vice-Chancellor, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, announced this on Monday while receiving three of the scholars in his office.
The beneficiaries are professors Kunle Ayorinde; Victor Alabi, and Taiwo Ibiyemi.
He said the academics were supervisors of the students whose theses excelled in the Nigeria Universities Doctoral Thesis Awards Scheme organised by the National Universities Commission last year.
Ambali said, “The university recognised the fact that without their expertise and thoroughness, the students’ theses would not have won the awards.
The vice-chancellor added that the university had to give special recognition to the supervisors “because without them, these awards wouldn’t have been ours.
“With them producing this calibre of students with limited resources, there is no doubt that with more encouragement, they will do more,” he said.
The doctoral graduates who won the awards are Eunice Sola-Ojo of the Faculty of Agriculture, Ojeniyi Adetunji of the Faculty of Arts and Omowunmi Gbenga-Ilori of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology.
The Dean of the Postgraduate School, Prof. Clement Bewaji, who spoke on the occasion, commended the authorities for providing the grant.
