    The year 2012 is a leap year and I am ordinarily not a superstitious
    person but in Nigeria, we always say that leap years are bad years.
    They are years when horrible things happen. This has been the case in Nigeria this year.
    There are so many deaths of important people in this country this year.
    The ones that come readily to mind are the deaths of Professor Tokunbo
    Sofoluwe the young Vice Chancellor of University of Lagos, Oba Oladele Olasore,
    Wole Adeosun, Lamidi Adesina, Hope Harriman, General Muhammad,
    Peter Agboola Osuntokun, Yemi Ogendegbe and Olusola Saraki.
    Tokunbo died suddenly in harness without warning and broke all our hearts.

    He was not only a wonderful mathematician and computer scientist, he
    was also a wonderful man. He made an impression on everyone
    who met him and his death was a personal loss to me. Not
    only because I saw him as a younger brother, but also because his older brothers were my school mates and friends.
    Tokunbo was like a junior brother that I never had.
    I still think about him all the time and sometimes
    wonder why good people die young. But God is a mystery and He alone
    is his own interpreter and I believe when we get to heaven, he will make
    it plain to us. Tokunbo’s death created a void in the lives of many people which will be
    difficult to fill.

    I remember also the late Professor Adebayo Olumide, foremost neurosurgeon who
    passed on in Ibadan recently. He was a first class surgeon, a
    gentleman, more like a gentle giant because of his height and disposition. We were together
    in the USA in 1980 when he spent a sabbatical year in Washington DC.
    My heart goes to his amiable wife Ronke, a daughter to Sir Samuel Manuwa and to his children who were little when I last saw them.
    Bayo will be missed for his wit and gentle manners.

    Another horrible loss was the death of Kabiyesi Oladele Olasore, the Ajagbusi- Ekun, Aloko of
    Iloko who joined his ancestors a few months ago. Kabiyesi was a fine man in everything.
    A chartered accountant, a banker, a former minister of the
    Federal Republic, a businessman, an educationist, a philanthropist and a public
    spirited man. He was a gentle soul, an amiable man who felt concerned about people.
    He loved people and he tried to draw people close to him.

    I did not get close to him until he became the Aloko and a couple
    of times, he invited me to come to Iloko to visit with him.
    Unfortunately, I was too busy to take up his invitation and I regret I did not do so.
    I once stayed overnight in his excellent hotel in the sleepy town of Iloko.
    What is most impressive about him is his commitment to his hometown and
    its development. When he was Secretary of Finance in the federation, I believe he
    caused a contract to be awarded for the dualisation of
    the road between Ife and Ilesha and he insisted that a spur to Iloko must be part of the award.
    He built an excellent secondary school in Iloko,
    the facility of which will put to shame several so called universities.
    One wonders why he never converted this school to a university especially now that
    all kinds of mushroom universities are springing up daily.
    Oba Olasore was a Christian. He used to come to the Holy Ghost
    services at the Redemption camp and when my wife was alive, his sister used to be a guest at our camp house.
    I believe Kabiyesi was born in Kano, he spoke Hausa well
    and he had a global view about life. He will be sorely missed.

    Before him another titan in the accountancy world, Chief
    Wole Adeosun also a former minister and managing director of First bank also
    passed on to glory. Chief Wole Adeosun worked in NAL Merchant Bank, a foremost merchant bank in Nigeria.

    He was also involved in economic policy formulation in the country for
    several years. I remember him travelling with us to the far East when I was in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as special adviser to the Minister.
    Both he and Oba Olasore were relatively young and in their passing, Nigeria will be the poorer for it.

    Just as we were settling down and digesting the implications of
    these losses, news broke that the former governor of Oyo, Alhaji Lamidi Adesina had passed on. Lamidi Adesina was a columnist in the Tribune for
    several years and he was a diehard supporter
    of Chief Obafemi Awolowo and his politics. It was therefore not surprising
    that he was elected on the platform of the UPN into the House of
    Representatives during the second republic. Alhaji Adesina’s politics
    was centrist and a grass roots man. He had his ears to the ground
    and he knew what the people wanted, he was different from Alhaji Adedibu who belonged to the
    other side of the coin of Ibadan politics. Adesina was a professional teacher and in whatever he did, the teaching profession influenced
    him. I remember when he became governor, I had occasion to visit him in his Molete home.
    I had a personal mission that I wanted to accomplish during my visit.
    I will not go into details but the gist of it
    is that I wanted him to reconcile the Awolowo and Akintola’s political factions
    in Yorubaland and I wanted him to do this through a signal appointment of
    a young man who in his own marriage had reconciled Akintola and Awolowo’s faction of
    political tendencies in yorubaland. Alhaji Adesina received me
    with kindness, consideration, respect and commended me for my action. Even though he did not carry out my request, I know he consulted with the
    late Chief Bola Ige. I would not know what Chief Ige said,
    but the appointment did not come through. There wasn’t much money
    when Alhaji Adesina was governor so in terms of physical achievements, there were no dramatic
    things that he did as governor under the Alliance of Democracy Party but he maintained peace and civility
    in the state and brought into governance respect for law.
    He kept a lid on the excesses of party supporters especially
    in a situation where Yoruba people felt aggrieved by the persecution they suffered under
    Abacha and naturally wanted to give bloody noses to
    those perceived as Abacha’s supporters in Ibadan. It is a pity that
    Alhaji Adesina took ill and died at a time when the ACN needs his advice especially
    in these difficult years of preparation for politics of 2015.


    Because the nationwide strike embarked upon by organised labour ended following President Goodluck Jonathan’s discount of gas pump worth
    to N97 per litre, varsity college students within the nation have urged the President to additionally settle his variations
    with the placing Tutorial Employees Union of Universities (ASUU).

    The aggrieved college college students argued that if Jonathan and his ministers may very well
    be so desirous to settle with the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC)
    over the nationwide strike, they see no purpose why the
    federal government shouldn’t do similar with ASUU if it actually takes the
    training of the residents critical.

    The scholars who spoke with Campus Sq. opined that after the NLC strike has been known as off, they anticipated Jonathan to take obligatory steps on the ASUU strike as properly, in order that tutorial actions can start in with out
    additional delay.

    “That is the one method he (Jonathan) can at the very least re-ignite the arrogance we used to have in him, as a result of he had betrayed us prior to now. I urge him and the authorities involved to debate and ensure that we resume as quickly as doable,” stated Yinka Ogunlola, a pupil of the Lagos State College.

    One other scholar, popularly often known as Dings on the College of Lagos, Akoka,
    disclosed that “I don’t know why the federal government appears to not be involved in regards to the country’s training system, and that is kind of disheartening.”

    In the meantime, an Islamic scholar, Imam Mohammed Moshood, who expressed concern concerning the comatose scenario of the
    schooling sector, admonished authorities to pay extra consideration to the
    sector as a result of it’s the way forward for the nation.

    “Our leaders are the place they’re at this time as a result of they’re educated, so I anticipate them to sow a great seed within the training sector so as to save lots of the way forward for this nation. I can’t think about what a Nigerian era filled with uneducated individuals would seem like.
