Dr. Larry Jones-Esan

The Director of Studies of the London Academy for Higher Education, Dr. Larry Jones-Esan, has commended the Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun, for his contribution towards staff capacity building.

Dr. Jones-Esan, gave the commendation in an exclusive chat with FUNAAB Bulletin at the Academy in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), recently.

The Director identified inadequate exposure of public servants to international trainings, especially, in the nation’s ivory towers as a militating factor to University development.

He, however, expressed his delight that the University Management had set the pace by sending members of staff for
overseas training, at regular intervals, irrespective of status.

He called on Chief Executives of both public and private organisations to take a cue from the sterling leadership qualities of Prof. Balogun, which he described as “exemplary and worthy of emulation”.

Dr. Jones-Esan therefore called on beneficiaries to see the attendance of the training programmes as an investment that would yield dividends for them and the University, at large.
