The University of Lagos has announced Dr Kudus Adebayo, as the winner of the Prof Rahamon Bello best Ph.D. thesis award of the Institute of Africa Diaspora Studies Centre.

Adebayo holds a University of Ibadan Ph.D. in sociology, and his thesis titled, ‘Migration and Settlement Experiences of Nigerians in Guangzhou, China’ won him the award.

While disclosing this on Monday December 14, 2020, the Vice-Chancellor, University of Lagos, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, said the competition was organised to showcase researches locally and globally.

“We are glad that the university under the Institute was able to organise this. The person that got the award is not even from the University of Lagos.

“That is what the competition is all about, to showcase research locally and globally and also to let people know that we are not a local university that is only talking about our own products.

“The university is going to continue to support demand-driven research. We want to showcase the skill and potential that we have deposited in this university, in terms of our academic staff, non-teaching staff, students and also our partners. So by next year you’ll see more and hear more of the University of Lagos,” Ogundipe said.

The former VC UNILAG, who was named after the award, Prof. Rahamon Bello, explained that the award was necessary to appreciate the tedious efforts of researchers, especially in the Arts.

“It is a lot of work to write a Ph.D. thesis, particularly those in the Arts; it has been so tough and difficult to find places where they get rewarded. This award is now a platform for many of them to do Ph.D. and do good research.”
