THE Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has hailed the emergence of Dr. Benjamin Akande as the first African-American President of the Westminster College, United States, describing it as another global recognition for the contributions of Nigerians in the Diaspora to the body of knowledge.

The governor said that the feat by Akande, an indigene of Awe in Oyo State, was a defining moment for the country and an affirmation that the United States’ reward system was devoid of racial bias.

He encouraged other Nigerians staying outside the shores of the country to emulate the commitment, dedication and competence of Akande, whom he described as a worthy ambassador of the state.
