For the Bursar of Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), Mrs Bolatito Roseline Akande, July 2, 2020 was a red letter day.
For many reasons she had cause to celebrate her 50th birthday that day. One, she clocked the golden age against the vicissitudes of life particularly in Nigeria where life expectancy is shortened by assailants, assassins, herdsmen attacks, poverty, diseases and pandemic and brutal ritualists and armed robbers.
Again, in February, 2020, she became the Bursar of FUOYE, Africa’s fastest growing university. And as if that is not enough, on May 18, 2020, the Council of the prestigious Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAN) conferred on her the highest honour a member can have, the Fellowship of the Institute.
At FUOYE, the mood has been upbeat as staff members rejoice with the top accountant for the recent honour and accomplishment, as well as attaining the golden milestone.
At the head of the party presenting her the bouquet of accolades and goodwill is the management of the university which wished the bursar many more years of professional fulfilment and marital bliss.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof Kayode Soremekun, in a statement by the Director of Corporate Services, Mr. Adeyinka Ademuyiwa, expressed delight, saying he was happy and grateful to God for blessing the university with such a dedicated, hardworking financial Amazon.
