He is an external examiner at numerous university examinations.

Elujoba's involvement in research into medicinal plants has brought him into close association with persons living with HIV/AIDS who fondly refer to him as the 'village chemist'. He is also a strong advocate of the incorporation of medicinal herbal therapies into the national health care system. He is the President of the African AIDS Research Network, Nigerian Chapter and a Member, Board of Trustees of the Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria (NEPWHAN). Earlier this year, he asserted his will for young people to take interest in exploring the unending benefits of nature.
