The glowing memory of the late Vice Chancellor of the Kwara State University, Prof. Muhammed Mustapha Akanbi SAN, was rekindled yesterday (Decemebr 26, 2022) at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Ilorin Emirate Professors’ Association (IEPA), an association that the late Prof. Akanbi initiated two years ago.
In his welcome address at the well attended occasion where about 130 Professors from the Emirate were in attendance, the pioneer President of the association, Prof. Sulyman Alege Kuranga paid glowing tributes to the memory of late Professor of Law.
The outgoing President of IEPA said it is unfortunate that the initiator of this prestigious association, Prof. Akanbi is no longer with them.
“I must pay glowing tributes to the memory of our brother, friend and colleague, Prof. Muhammed Mustapha Olaroungbe Akanbi, SAN, the late Vice Chancellor of Kwara State University, Malete. Prof. Akanbi, was undoubtedly the initiator of this Association”.
“He was the one who insisted and worked for its eventual takeoff. He also did everything within his capacity to ensure its survival. While it is sad that the youngman is no more with us, we would continue to remember and pray for further repose of his gentle soul. May Allah forgive his shortcomings and bless his soul with a place in Aljanat Fridouz and take care of his widow, children and relations. Amiin”.
“The constitution of the Association has been drafted, reviewed and edited by constitutional experts among us including the late Prof. Akanbi” Prof. Kuranga added.
Prof. Akanbi would continue to be remembered for his lofty ideas, erudition, kindheartedness, generosity, humane character, humanitarianism, good leadership skill, God fearing and many more. May Allah be pleased with his soul and make him a dweller of Al-Janatu firdaus, aameen.
