|Dr. Victor Omololu Sowemimo Olunloyo|
"In the early 50s I was the only one that was given two scholarships simultaneously under the influence of Obafemi Awolowo. They asked me which of the two would I take, that is, a Ph.D career in Mathematics or Engineering. To the shock of everyone I decided to go for the two. That's how I became a Mathematician and an Engineer. So I am very grateful to Chief Awolowo for that opportunity. And I was not a member of the Action Group."
Dr. Olunloyo remains one of the youngest Nigerians ever to hold a cabinet position. He was appointed Commissioner for Economic Development for the Western Region in 1962 at the age of 27!
