Mrs. Jijitar said the lecture titled, “Leadership and Chal­lenges of Managing Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria” was put together by management and staff of the college to ap­preciate the quality legacies Isma’il’s created for the insti­tution.

Prof. Isma’il ‘s life at the college spanned 10 years, he served as an administrative staff for two years before he was appointed Provost for two tenures, with a period of four years each, bringing it to 10 years.
