The Deputy Provost had spoken about his adaptive mechanism in turning a major set-back threat into a step-up process for stardom while working as a former acting Editor with the Daily Times Newspaper group in Lagos.


 He said he used his earlier days as a newbie in the industry to invest quality time in personal development, which invariably opened doors of greater opportunity for him in his career journey.

Reiterating on “anything your mind can conceive, you can definitely achieve” he implored the upcoming journalists to passionately and purposefully pursue their career goals, for nothing is impossible to a willing mind!.

The outcome of the match was a shocker to the PGD female folks, who had earlier underrated the skills of their male colleagues.

They were however pleasantly surprised, when the latter began to showcase commendable skills and personal coordination when the game went underway.

The class governor of the PHD student- Mrs Rufai Hussainat Kehinde who was among others who cheered endlessly from the stands, expressed  profound appreciation of her players.


These players included Michael, Wande, Mustakeem, Emmanuel, Afeez and Ademola Ogunlana who played skillfully.

Although the PHD female student had no keen interest in enlisting for the friendly football match, yet the synergy they displayed in cheering their male colleagues at the pitch was highly commendable.

Some became self-appointed cheer leaders, welfare officers or any other encouraging role of choice.
