One of the most esteemed individuals associated with the UI is Agbaje, a political science professor.
As you may have discovered, he held the title of only First-Class degree holder in the university’s Political Science department for a number of years before being surpassed in the 2000s by Tunde Oseni, who is currently an Associate Professor at Lead City University, Ibadan.
As a smart student and a supporter of press freedom who helped the development of journalism on the UI campus in a variety of ways, including the Union of Campus Journalists, Adigun is claimed to have been adored by many of his pupils.
