ABUJA – A Nigerian Agricultural Consultant, Dr Tunde Arosayin, has been nominated as a member of the prestigious American Chemical Society, according to a statement.
The statement was issued in Abuja on Friday by Mr Denise Creech, the organisation’s Division of Membership and Scientific Advancement Director.
It quoted Creech as saying that the nomination came after a vigorous selection process.
Creech said the organisation’s by-laws entailed a prior nomination of an incoming member by two existing members, a hurdle other candidates could not surpass.
He added that “many chemical practitioners, who wanted to join, informed us that this was a real barrier.
“They had the credentials, the degree, academic training and job title required but they didn’t know any members or were reluctant to ask a colleague to make a nomination.’’
The Society’s official noted that the organisation wanted to create a window of opportunity for chemists working in academia, industry, government and other venues.
Arosayin, he said, was nominated after a thorough screening and final review process by the Society and would gain direct access to the organisation’s resources to improve on his profession.
Dr Tunde Arosayin, an internationally acknowledged consultant in the agricultural sector, is a fellow of many national and international institutes.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Farm Power and a Masters Degree in Agriculture and Land Development from Herald University, UK.
Arosayin also holds a doctorate degree in Agriculture and Land Use from the Prestigious University of Aston Birmigham, UK, with a Senior Research Certificate from Neger Institute of Strategy and Rural Development, Israel. (NAN)
