BIRTHDAY FELICITATIONS TO AN ICON @ 89
On behalf of the Governing Council, Management, Staff and Students of the University of Benin, we felicitate with our iconic first Female Vice Chancellor, Professor Grace Alele-Williams on the special occasion of her 89th birthday anniversary.
As a renowned scholar and trailblazer, Professor Alele-Williams has continued to serve as a role model to many generations of academics and Administrators. An epitome of hard work, commitment, diligence and resilience, her remarkable achievements in education, administration, public life and demonstrable zeal for excellence are indeed a template for public office holders and all who desire to make a difference in their calling.
For us at the University of Benin, it is a thing of joy that such an iconic figure served and left her indelible footprints in the Institution. We are proud to be associated with a lady who broke the glass ceiling, thereby opening the floodgate for more women to aspire to and attain enviable heights.
May God continue to grant her excellent health and fulfillment always.
Once again, congratulations to my worthy predecessor.
Professor Lilian I. Salami,
Vice Chancellor, University of Benin
