The Obafemi Awolowo University, popularly called OAU have just produced the first feminine Professor of Quantity Surveying in the continent.
Professor (Mrs) Olubola Babalola became the first professor in the field of Quantity Surveying recently, a situation which elated Nigerians home and abroad. She is seen as a pace setter in all her endeavors even as she seals her name and that of the University she teaches in, Obafemi Awolowo University in gold.
We do wish her well in her new position even as we try to establish contact with her for an interview on her new position in the African continent.
Already, there is a rise in the number of female professors on the continent which also serve as a measurement of gender balance in the continent.
Achieving a feat like this worthy of celebration indeed in a field where is men dominated.
Once again, Congratulations to Professor (Mrs) Olubola Babalola.
