Olukoya becomes Professor of Biotechnology

December 12, 2022

The General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Dr. Daniel Olukoya, has been appointed as Professor of Biotechnology by one of Nigeria’s top universities.

Olukoya, who is also the Chancellor of Mountain Top University, is found fit by relevant review committees and the Council of the university, and based on 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.

He 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 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 from 1984 to 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.

Prof. Olukoya was severally offered this position in the 1990s by many Universities but he chose to pursue his ministerial destiny, as directed by God.
