President Buhari notes that the election of the University of Lagos don in Paris, France, last week, “hoists Nigeria’s flag proudly once again in the international arena,” urging Prof Akinfeleye to serve diligently in the three-year term, in which he would represent not only Nigeria, but the entire African continent.

More than 600 participants from 70 countries participated in the World Journalism Education Congress, where Prof Akinfeleye was elected.
