In a show of solidarity, the Nigeria Academy of Pharmacy (NAPharm) has lauded Prof. Oludolapo Akinkungbe, pioneer general secretary of the defunct Nigerian Union of Pharmacists (NUP) and oldest former president, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN).
Addressing a gathering of notable pharmacists during NAPharm’s investiture of new fellows and award dinner held recently at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, Prince Juli Adelusi-Adeluyi, president of the academy declared that he is always proud every time he meets with the octogenarian owing to his impeccable record.
“However I am not surprised he has come this far. It has always been in his DNA to be a successful pharmacist because, if you recall, his father was equally a renowned druggist.
“That is why even at 88, he still finds time to attend and participate actively in major pharmaceutical events. Little wonder he remains the oldest past president of the society still in our midst today,” he said.
