In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina said President Buhari notes that the election of the University of Lagos don in Paris, France, last week, “hosts Nigeria’s flag proudly once again in the international arena,” urging Prof Akinfeleye to serve diligently in the three-year term, in which he would represent not only Nigeria but the entire African continent.
