Engineer Obafemi Omokungbe is Yabatech Rector

The federal government Tuesday announced Engineer Obafemi Omokungbe, 55, the Rector of Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech). He is the first alumnus of the 70-year old institution to be appointed Rector. He succeeded Dr. Margaret Kudirat Ladipo, who completed her tenure December 10, 2017. 
Announcing the appointment three days back, the Chairman, Yabatech Governing Council, Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) said, “Record is made today, Omokungbe has been approved by the Minister for Education and the Presidency. 
“The Governing Council had adopted the best to get the best and God has given us the best. Indeed, it is all that is well, that ends well. I must say, it is easier to get to the top of the ladder but it requires ten times the initial effort to sustain yourself at the top. That means, as you have come out in large number to solidarize with the new Rector, you must keep praying for him to succeed.”

He saluted the two runner ups, Drs. Raheem Omobayo and Kayode Aledare for their large heartedness. “We did not have any regrets forwarding three great names from which Omokungbe was selected.” He thanked the federal government for not throwing overboard the recommendations of the Council.
