Prof. IDOWU, A. Babatunde

VICE CHANCELLOR

Vice-Chancellor

Professor A. Babatunde Idowu obtained his first degree in Zoology from the then Ondo State University now Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti with a Second Class Upper in 1986. He proceeded to the prestigious premier University of Ibadan, Ibadan where he studied and specialized in Animal Physiology at the Department of Zoology and obtained M.Sc (Hons) Zoology on Zoology on Animal Physiology in 1988 and Doctor of Philosophy in 1995.

From April, 1992 to February, 1995, he was an Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (UNAAB). From 1995 to September 1997, he was Lecturer II. From 1997 to September 2000, he became a Lecturer I in the same Department. In 2003, he was promoted to the rank of a Senior Lecturer and later became an Associate Professor 2003 and later a full Professor in 2006. Between January 2008 and April 2009 he was at the University of Lagos for his sabbatical leave.

Professor Idowu has fought many battles in the University to ensure that justice was served. He believes as the German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, once said “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil”. He is not too diplomatic; for he believes an academic must be able to speak his/her mind at all time. He respects men but only fears God.

He has supervised many undergraduate and postgraduate students alike. He has produced many Ph.D graduates including Dr. Kehinde Ademolu, Dr. Dele Adeyi, Dr. Adeyemi Ajao and others. He has about six major researches in progress, with particular interest in Zonocerus variegatus. Professor Idowu has over 87 papers in reputable journals in and outside the country. He is published in not less than 22 proceedings.
