Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has showered encomiums on former Vice Chancellor of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Prof Segun Awonusi, for his contribution to education and other areas of Nigerian life.

Abiodun doled out the vote of confidence during Prof Awonusi’s 70th birthday and book launch held at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), from where Awonusi, will this month, sign out as a Professor of English Phonetics and Phonology.

The well-accomplished scholar “has recorded significant achievements within the academia, and we wish him all the best,” Abiodun said.

Former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, also graced the occasion.

UNILAG Vice Chancellor, Prof Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, his predecessor, Professor Rahman Bello, and other top dignitaries turned up to celebrate Awonusi.

An accomplished author and a well-celebrated linguist with a retinue of publications to his credit, Prof Awonusi has dedicated 42 years of his life in active service to UNILAG.
