“Reflections on The Ambali Years” By Olusegun Adeniyi

In this book, The Ambali Years, which I read for the first time last night after arriving Ilorin, even though it took me just about two hours to complete, Mr Kunle Akogun has done an important work. By documenting the impactful five-year tenure on this campus,of Professor AbdulGaniyu Ambali, he has provided a concise and enjoyable narrative that offers insights into the workings of one of the most sought-after offices within the academic community in Nigeria.

Right from the first chapter, the author transports the reader back in time, through the educational background of the distinguished professor, starting from his primary school days as a student of Pakata Primary School, Ilorin to the attainment of his doctorate degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Liverpool in England. The author also takes us on a brief detour of the work experience of the distinguished professor.
