The sudden and sad demise of Dr. Olubunmi Owoso, has robbed the ancient town of Ijebu-Jesa of one of its most illustrious sons. We were proud of the fact that he never lost touch with his roots despite his constant engagements in the academic and administrative world where he, among others, rose to the position of Rector of the prestigious Yaba College of Technology, Lagos-Nigeria and the Secretary General of the Kenya based Commonwealth Association of Technical Polytechnics and Universities (CAPA). It is worthy of note that Dr. Owoso was an active member of the Egboro Klub, one of the strongest constituents of the Ijebu-Jesa Unions’ Conference and through which he made financial and intellectually contributions to the development of the town. The IJUC will not only sorely miss Dr. Owoso for these contributions but also for his humility, friendliness and trust worthiness.
We commiserate with the wife and children, we commiserate with the Owoso family and we commiserate with Egboro Klub of Ijebu-Jesa.
