In Loving Memory of Bunmi Owoso: We spent hours and hours together, sometimes daily. He was visibly enthused to be at Ilesha in 1972. I was not sure what it was that gave him so much joy at the time. Perhaps it was the fact that he had just put a University degree in his

By Bunmi Makinwa

Dr Olubunmi Owoso personifies all you could ask for in a brother in-law. I had the pleasure of knowing him for over three decades. During this period, I found him to be a loving husband to my late sister, a devoted father, grandfather, and a distinguished gentleman. You touched so many lives with your kindness,

JOHN ADEWALE ABIONA

Where do I start? Dr Owoso (or “Bros Bunmi” as he was fondly called) was not just my brother-in-law but also a big brother to my siblings and I. He was a loving and caring husband to my late sister, extraordinary father to his children and treated our late father Pa Abiona as his own

Mrs Tokunbo Ajiboye

The sudden and sad demise of Dr. Olubunmi Owoso, has robbed the ancient town of Ijebu-Jesa of one of its most illustrious sons.

Engineer Gbenga Abudiore, Global President, Ijebu Jesa Unions' Conference (IJUC)

The day my wife Olamide Agbola formally introduced me to her brother, popularly called ‘Buoda Mi’, was amongst one of the happiest days in my life.  I got more than I bargained for.  He received me very warmly as if we had known ourselves for decades.  Within me, I was full of joy in that

Freeman Kalilani, Salima Technical College

Dr. Owoso was as great as he was humble. He had a clear vision of where he wanted CAPA and TVET to go. I was privileged to interact with him when we wrote the 2018-23 CAPA strategic plan. The idea of ATUPA came around that time at Qaribu Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya

Charles Chivatsi, Ngong TVC

Your patience, humility, servanthood and professionalism has left and indelible mark on the heart of TEVET in Zambia. Go well champion of TEVET.

Joseph Mutelo, Country Representative (ZAMBIA) DIRECTOR Zambia Institute of Management

Suzgika Mvalo, Lilongwe Technical College, MALAWI

Conceptor N.Bamusi Kachoka, TEVETA Malawi

By the time I met with Dr. Owoso on a different path, neither of us ever remembered that we both attended Egbado College. Indeed, we were there together in 1967 &1968. He was in HSC class while I was in classes 2 & 3.
Between 2012 & 2017, our relationship was that of secretary-general/Rector
