He is also an accomplished energy expert with considerable experience in public and private sectors in Nigeria and also internationally.
Last June, Professor Adegbulugbe was selected by the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, for the first university award of excellence in research practice.
The award is a prestigious award given to an alumnus of the university with an outstanding record of knowledge-based accomplishment at global and national levels.
