    UNIBEN mourns Alele-Williams, flies flag at half-mast

    The University of Benin, on Saturday, ordered the flying of the institution’s flag at half-mast to mourn the death of the first female Vice-Chancellor in Nigeria, Professor Grace Alele-Williams.

    Alele-Williams, who was appointed Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin in 1985, died on Friday in Lagos at the age of 89 years.

    In a statement, the University of Benin’s spokesperson, Dr. Benedicta Ehanire, said that the current Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof Lilian Salami, mourned the passing of her predecessor, on behalf of the university community.

    Salami, the second female vice-chancellor in the institution after Alele-Williams, described the late former and first female vice-chancellor as an iconic giant for breaking the glass ceiling for other women to blossom.

    She expressed solace in the fact that the late professor was being celebrated rather than mourned.

    “The Vice-Chancellor, University of Benin, Prof. Lilian Salami, on behalf of the Governing Council, Management, Staff, Alumni, and Students, mourns the passing of her predecessor, Prof. Grace Alele- Williams.

    “Prof. Salami described the late former and first female vice-chancellor of the University of Benin as an iconic giant who broke the glass ceiling for other women to blossom,’’ Dr. Ehanire stated.

    Prof. Alele-Williams, Nigeria’s first female professor of Mathematics Education was born on December 16, 1932, in Delta to an Itsekiri mother and Owan father from Sobe, Edo State.
