A moslem cleric and Phd student of University of Ilorin,Dr. AbdulHafeez Adedimeji has died on the day he was to pick up his PhD certificate from the institution.

The brilliant cleric ,before his death was the Chief Imam of Fountain Unvversity Osogbo in Osun State.

This was the unedited post by Mr Semiu Okanlawon ,Special Adviser,Media to Osun State Governor.

"The Dean PostGraduate School University of Ilorin called his name out in the huge gathering this morning to step out and shake the Visitor to the Institution and collect his Honour, a PhD. Rather than step out for his glory, a sad voice announced "He died early this morning". For a moment, the hall went 'dead'.

That is the story of Dr. AbdulHafeez Adedimeji, one of my brothers from Iwo and until his sudden death in the early hours of today, the Chief Imam Of Fountain University Osogbo and a lecturer. 

Exactly the time his colleagues were stepping out at the University of Ilorin for their PhD Honours, he was being lowered into his grave in Iwo. But who are we to query Allah- the perfecter and finisher of our fates? He had paid for and obtained his academic gown for today's ceremony. He drove his children to school Friday morning. He had his eyes on that moment to crown his academic exploits.

 But Allah had designed it to come this way. No leave drops from a tree save with the permission of Allah. May Allah overlook his wrong steps and rest him perfectly like the favoured."
