By allcitynews.ng



The General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries worldwide, Dr Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, has added another feather to his doctorate cap as he has now become Professor of Biotechnology by one of Nigeria’s top Universities.

The General Overseer who is also the Chancellor of Mountain Top University was appointed as Professor of Biotechnology by one of Nigeria’s top Universities.

According to a release from the ministry, the new pedestal was the result of the positive consideration by relevant review Committees and Council of the University following the assessments of his publications by some of the world’s best scholars in Biotechnology, each of whom found him to be eminently appointable as Professor of Biotechnology.

“It needs to be underscored that this appointment is indeed well-deserved by Prof. D. K. Olukoya, who is an epitome of all-round excellence,” says the church.

It would be recalled that Olukoya bagged a first-class honours degree in Microbiology from the University of Lagos in 1980.

He obtained his doctoral degree (Ph.D) at a record time in Molecular Genetics, from the prestigious University of Reading in the United Kingdom, in 1984.

Thereafter, he taught Genetics at the University of Lagos and was an external examiner to a number of Universities in and outside Nigeria.

He also engaged himself as a distinguished researcher and exceptional Geneticist at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research between 1984 and 1998, during which he produced more than 70 scientific publications in the best local and international journals in the area of Microbiology and Biotechnology. He has also been cited more than a thousand times by scholars across the world.

Not only has the new Professor of Biotechnology made history for himself among eminent scholars in Microbiology and Biotechnology across the world, he had equally supervised many postgraduate students and continues to serve as a mentor and motivator to many Nigerian Microbiologists and Biotechnologists, many of whom have risen to professorial cadres in Universities in and outside Nigeria.

“It needs to be mentioned that Prof. D. K. Olukoya was severally offered this position in 1990s by many Universities. But, he chose to pursue his ministerial destiny, as directed by God.

“The authorities, members and friends of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, across the world, heartily congratulate our leader and mentor, Prof. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, on his very eminently deserved appointment as Professor of Biotechnology.”
