The great PFS is 60!

It was appropriate to hear a unionist call him PFS at his birthday bash.

Only a rare achiever like PFS, Professor Felix Salako will get an adorable acronym from unionists in these days of strikes as unions downtool across board.

We had no doubt in our minds that he would be a great man in Apollo, Apostolic Church Grammar School where he disciplined us like the principal as our senior.

For unionists that saw three Vice Chancellors in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) to say they didn’t believe such unprecedented infrastructure is possible under one VC speaks volume.

SSANU said he achieved great strides so silently that those that stayed in their offices without going round the campus will not notice the transformation.

One goes green with jealousy for the union chair took it out of our mouths as his good works transcends the four walls of the university.

PFS is a humble benefactor for everyone that has crossed his path for favour.

An enigmatic protagonist that’s shy of blowing his trumpet.

With such a ginormous Physics Professor among Nigerian intellectuals as blessing like some like him in other fields one wonders why Nigeria still crawls.

An administrator per excellence and of repute that the community around FUNAAB feels his impact like a colossus political office holder.

Put a query to the least person in Osiele if in doubt.

One glorifies GOD ALMIGHTY as only the Omnipotent puts such a mix of the fear of GOD and humility in tango with cerebrity in one handsome Titan like PFS.

Such perspicaciousity that’s down to earth is rare but PFS exhibits more though with stern discipline that distractors have gotten their hands burnt in attempts of taking him for granted.

We pray GOD ALMIGHTY to grant you longevity in health peradventure Nigeria will realize soon her wealth in human resources such as PFS.

Happy 60th birthday and many happy returns.
