Engr Salako-Oyedele noted that as an iman of 37 years, his leadership and forthrightness had impacted lives positively.
"As an iman of almost forty years one can only imagine the number of lives he has impacted, his humility and gentleness may belie the strength of the man, but the result is everywhere for everyone to see and judge" She said.

While praying to Almighty Allah for more long life and good health for the revered scholar, she congratulated the new Chief Iman admonishing him to follow in the good footsteps that his predecessor is leaving behind.

Also Speaking, the Vice Chancellor of OOU and chief host,  Professor Ganiyu Olatunde, appreciated Almighty Allah for his benevolence in the life of the celebrant, saying the contributions of Prof Balogun to academics and the muslim community of OOU has not only brought development to the institution, but has also been a guiding light to many in Ago-Iwoye Town if not Ogun State as a whole.
