As a University Don, he has made positive impacts on several youths who have been in contact with him, even beyond the shores of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Ogbomoso where he is currently an Academic Staff, in the Department of Animal Nutrition and Biotechnology.
So many young ones have gained admissions into various universities both at home and abroad through his influence. He is a grassroot personality who mixes freely with both old and young ones and is always ready to render assistance in developing others. There is hardly any local government area of Oyo State that his benevolence hasn’t touched as he is presently one of the Staff Academic Advisors for Students from Oyo State. As such, one is not surprised about his ratification as the Oyo State gubernatorial flag-bearer of the great All Grassroot Alliance (AGA) party.
He equally bagged both his M.Sc and Ph.D degrees from the same University of Ibadan in 2005 and 2016 respectively, specializing in Ruminants Nutrition and Dairy Science. Dr. Okunlola is a Corporate Member of some professional bodies among which are the Nigerian Society of Animal Production (NSAP), Animal Science Association of Nigeria (ASAN), Nigerian Institute of Animal Science (NIAS), just to mention a few.
