On October 5, the School of Law held a low-key get-together to send forth one of its staff members, Kaaman Geoffrey Jalo.
Ms. Jalo, also an alumna, is Italy-bound for graduate studies.
Dean of School of Law, Prof. Oladejo Olowu, recalled how the departing alum rendered “immense support” in branding the AUN law programs and said, “It is our role to support her and not to discourage her because her leaving is for her moving forward.” “She has performed superlatively both during convenient and non-convenient times,” he added.
Dr. Olowu noted that among the qualities of Ms. Jalo are loyalty and dedication to work. “I don’t know when I will get a replacement,” he went on. She was a full-tuition scholarship student who graduated from the Department of Petroleum Chemistry. AUN, she said, has made so much impact on her, and now she is leaving to further her education in Turin, Italy.
“AUN has been a home for me… I discovered myself here both academically and administratively. AUN gave me an advantaged position over my peers,” said Ms. Jalo. After her mandatory national service, she came back to work at AUN.
Abdullahi Ismail, her colleague, said, “I will really miss her, but I wish her success.”
