According to him, “the Kano State Governor, His Excellency Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has on behalf of the good people of Kano State done us proud in Ibadanland with the appointment of our foremost Oba Dr. Mohood Olalekan Ishola Balogun, Alli-Okunmade II as Chancellor, Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education, Kumbotso, Kano State. Our Kabiyesi is undoubtedly an institution as he has traversed every sector of life as an educationist, politician, administrator and traditional ruler.
I have no doubt that Kabiyesi will bring his wealth of experience into taking taking the University to greater heights. I therefore, on behalf of my immediate family and the extended Ladapo family of Oke-Offa, Babasale wish Kabiyesi a successful tenure of office”.
