Encomiums as Kolade exits PAU’s governing council
VICE Chancellor, Pan-Atlantic University (PAU), Prof. Juan Manuel Elegido, has stated that the leadership of former Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council of the institution Dr. Christopher Kolade, has brought innumerable benefits to the university.
A statement made available to The Guardian after the send-off ceremony, revealed that Kolade had previously informed the Board of Trustees of PAU Foundation (PAUF) of his desire to step down from his role as Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council, effective February 16, 2015.
It was in response to his desire that the ceremony, which held in the Honeywell Group Auditorium of the Lagos Business School (LBS) was organised to appreciate and celebrate his fruitful contributions to the university.
Elegido said the Board of Trustees of PAUF has also appointed Mr. Pascal Dozie, as the new Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council of the institution, effective February 17, 2015.
Kolade’s guidance, he said brought great achievements to the university, even as he commended his influence in making sure that the university’s council created an institution, where decision-making was measured and principled.
Elegido said, “This marks six years of exemplary service in this capacity. During this period and under his guidance, the university began offering undergraduate programmes and effected the movement of all units to the Ibeju-Lekki and Ajah campuses with the attendant infrastructural developments.
“Kolade has had a long and intimate relationship with the university. This relationship which spanned over 20 years, started with his participation in the first Chief Executive Programme (CEP) class of the LBS in 1991.”
