The Student Union wishes to take this time out in joining the entire students of the University, family, friends and admirers across the world in celebrating the life of a distinguished soul, Adebayo Rodiat (ORIANA) who has made her mark on the sporting scene in the University.

As she walks the stage of her golden age, we celebrate ORIANA for her excellent handling of the Sports Department in the Union, outstanding maintenance and management of sporting facilities and proffering solutions to the myriad of problems faced in the course of her remarkable service.

Sincere her emergence as the first female Sports Secretary in the University, she has consistently demonstrated exceptional capacity, unwavering patriotism and abiding faith in the unity, peace and progress of the University both in words and in action.

ORIANA is an embodiment of finesse, a fusion of intellectual fecundity and leadership competence, selfless stewardship, brave defender of sport and a symbol of courage. Her sterling leadership mien is not unexpected, given to her pedigree and antecedents as a former Sports Secretary of her Faculty (Agriculture).

We pray God to continue to grant her greater vision, robust vitality and a wealth of good health, in the service of the University and humanity at large.
