FROM THE OFFICE OF THE HEAD OF DEPARTMENT, DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS.
Compliments of the Joyous season everybody!!!
Welcome to the Department of Economics at the University of Ibadan. It is a great privilege that God has given me to lead this great Department as Head at this time. This is a department that is very dear to me; for the past three decades, I have been part of its growth and development. I have loved the department so much that one of my strongest desires was to one day lead it to new frontiers of excellence building on the solid foundation of the early fathers of the department who took time to nurture it and place it on the global map of excellence. The department, with its sound research, teaching and community service culture, promises to continue to produce sound Economics graduates who are worthy in character and sound judgment.
I congratulate all past and present students of the department as well as those who would be fortunate enough to be part of its brighter future. The department has trained, mentored, nurtured and produced and is still producing global economists and other social scientists, national and international civil and public servants, business leaders and entrepreneurs, credible politicians, government functionaries and a broad range of professionals.
