UI Vice-Chancellorship Race: Most Hard Fought Battle of My Academic Career -Adebowale, Ijaw News - Niger Delta Stories

Prof. Kayode Adebowale has described his election as the 13th Vice-Chancellor of Nigeria’s premier University, University of Ibadan (UI), as a long and hard forght academic battle in his entire career.

Adebowale made the claims during a brief sermon to the congregation of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Redemption Chapel, Oyo Province II Headquarters, Oluyole, Ibadan, on Sunday.

Adebowale claimed he had returned to convey his profound gratitude to the Almighty God for his new position, referring to the 10 lepers mentioned in the Bible.

He exhorted Christians not to take God’s benefits for granted, emphasizing the need of living a thankful and grateful lifestyle.

“Today is not a day for talking too much, but I will tell you that a battle just ended and after a battle ends, you need to prepare an altar of thanksgiving.

“Everyday, God lavishes His children with blessings and He expects us to appreciate those blessings.

“There are many believers today who take the blessings of God for granted, but we must acknowledge God for all His blessings on our lives.

“If you go back and look at how I started and what I have gone through, you will agree with me that it pays to serve God,” Adebowale said.

He, however, thanked the Provincial Pastor, Dave Erivona, for his prayers and supports.

According to the University Don, the pastor “was at the forefront of the battle with me and you couldn’t have known he was carrying such burden.”

Erivona requested for concerted prayers for the new vice-chancellor for a remarkable and successful tenure.
