“Without doubt, the passing of Professor Ezeilo will leave a void in our hearts and in the University, while he will still be revered as a great academic and an astute administrator.

Here lies a man who led our University with boundless enthusiasm, his accomplishments are still very visible and his untarnished leadership records leave with us an example to follow”, he said.
