Commendation Service for Late Professor OmotainseThe University has held a commendation service in honour of Professor Samuel Omotainse, the immediate past Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine (COLVET) of the University. Ministering at the Commendation Service, Professor Adewale Dipeolu, Director, Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies (CENTS), had described death as an inevitable end for all man. According to him, Professor Omotainse had gone to rest and is in a better place. He charged members of his family not to be bitter, but rather rejoice because he was resting in the bosom of the Lord. Professor Dipeolu tasked everyone present at the service to look unto the Lord and cast their fears on him, because only God is our refuge and strength, saying that in death, there is no second chance. However, according to him, death in itself was really not the end of life, most especially, for those who had given their lives to Jesus Christ.

The immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Oyewole had condoled with the family of the late Professor, charging them to be strong and look upon God for support, while praying that God would continue to provide for them in their needs according to His riches. Glowing tributes were paid to the deceased by various personalities from all walks of life. Until his death, Professor Omotainse was the Dean of COLVET, a position he assumed with effect from 1st August, 2016.
