MFM General Overseer, Daniel Olukoya Appointed Professor

In an official statement via his official Facebook page, the General Overseer made remarks saying that the appointment is 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.

Professor D.K.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 cut a niche 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. 

The impact and interests of the new Professor of Biotechnology, have  not been  limited to his activities as a  committed Scientist and exemplary researcher, but it has been generously extended to his heavy investment in the running of a private biotechnology laboratory for over many years.  The objective of the laboratory is to train university students in molecular genetics and biotechnology, on the basis of the financial inability of most universities to provide such vital laboratories or even provide the  manpower that is  indispensable to man the teaching and practical handling of  the two subjects. This exceptional provision has enabled many students to bridge the gaps  that their universities have  left unattended to and that would have had very adverse and negative effects on their interests in Biotechnology and Molecular Genetics and their  practical grasp of the two  subjects. 

While the authorities, members and friends of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, across the world, heartily congratulate Prof. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya on his very eminently deserved  appointment as Professor of Biotechnology, it is worthy of mention that the reknown man of God was severally offered this position in the 1990s by many Universities, but he chose to pursue his ministerial destiny, as directed by God.
