A former Chairman, Senate Committee on Women Affairs and Youth Development, Senator Daisy Danjuma, led honour’s list by the Redeemer’s University, Ede Osun State, as the institution conferred awards on five outstanding Nigerians, staffers and students of the institution.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof Anthony Akinlo, said the awards were in recognition of the professional credentials and contributions of the recipients to the development of the university.
