  1. NITP lost one of its illustrious members and a trail blazer in his own right. We thank God for Dr. Olomola’s eventful life. It is not how long; but how well. He served and lead the NITP well during his brief tenure. He was a man of innovation and penetrating ideas.

    The best the NITP could is to keep on with his legacy of moving the Institute forward and make it better than he left it. His successor must complete Dr. Olomola’s 7-point Agenda for the NITP. RIP Doc.
