Presenting the award to Prof. Ambali, on
behalf of the
organisers, one of the special guests and a
fellow honoree,
Prof. Santiago-Blas, described the Unilorin
helmsman as “a
household name in the international academia
following his
giant strides of achievements that have
placed the University
of Ilorin on the global education map”.
Prof. Santiago-Blas said it was, therefore, not
a surprise that
such a globally acknowledged achiever was
being recognised
for his services in the area of educational
development.
He, therefore, congratulated Prof. Ambali,
wishing him
“continuous progress as he contributes to
human capital
development, internationalisation,
multidisciplinary,
intermediary and collaborative research”.
In his response after receiving the award, the
multiple-
award-winning Vice-Chancellor thanked the
Research Nexus
Africa Networks for finding him worthy of the
prestigious
award, saying, “The fact that the organisers
have recognised
the excellence in me only points to one fact
and that is that
the Research Nexus is also a bundle of
excellence because it
takes excellence to recognise excellence”!
The award ceremony was part of the three-
day iSTEAMS

Centred Challenges
through Multidisciplinary Innovations and
Inter-tertiary
