Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Toyin Falola and Joseph Friesen Scholarship

Very warm congratulations to Dr. Toyin Falola and Joseph Friesen on
their gallant strides to inaugurate the Toyin Falola Center and
institute Scholarship Awards for African Students in Tertiary
Institutions. These are heart warming and positively changing to all
of us.

Kudos to you both and more grease to your loins.

Thank you so very much....
