  • I am happy to be a beneficiary of the OAF Scholarship Scheme. It has really helped my family financially, because it is not easy to pay such a huge amount of money. It is a huge privilege and opportunity to be blessed through this medium

  • The information I got, as a 100-level student, about Dr Olusegun Agagu Prizes for the best students at 200 and 300 levels and also for the best graduating student in the department was a key motivator for me to be the best I could be as a student, and I eventually turned out as a recipient of the three prizes.

  • I will like to express my appreciation for being awarded the Friends and Associates of Dr. Olusegun Agagu Prize for the best student in Geology in 200 level for 2012/2013 session. The prize is one that encourages students to work harder and I hope such good work continues. Dr. Olusegun Agagu will remain a man to be remembered and his good works live on.
