Going down memory lane, he said, “Prince was in the Private sector when he was first nominated for the Award, but as we prepared for his confirmation letter from the Main Campus, he was appointed the Head of the Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute, which delighted us that we had made a right choice in picking the Prince and his promotion to the post of the General Manager at the all-important Lagos State Neighbourhood Agency is an affirmation that we are indeed correct.”
Professor Ogunsakin said Victoria Global University was renowned for excellence and is highly delighted to have chosen a man found worthy for appointment and promotion by an Excellent Administrator like the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
In his response, Prince Ifalade Oyekan expressed his appreciation to the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu for giving him the opportunity to showcase his abilities. He said, without the opportunity given me by Mr Governor, your school would probably have presented this Awards with doubts, but thank God that the Governor gave me the opportunity to confirm your choice.”
Prince Ifalade while thanking his family for their sacrifices and his Staff for their consistent support reiterated his commitment to contributing his quota to the THEMES Agenda by ensuring the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency with the backing of the Governor becomes the foremost state owned security outfit in Nigeria and sub-Sahara Africa.
