My hearty congratulations to Professor Akinyemi Akintunde who I only met for the first time last October. He had most graciously agreed to keynote the conference organized by myself and Prof Mobolanle Sotunsa under the auspices of our Gender and African Studies Group at Babcock University. While the keynote address itself was appropriately provocative and engaging, it was his participation in the rest of the conference that astounded us. He must be a very busy scholar, but he stayed the full two days of the conference, attending all panels and volunteering to chair panels. He attended our business meeting and gave encouragement and sound advise which we took to heart. A more humble Nigerian American scholar I don't believe I have ever seen - except perhaps Prof Falola himself who never hesitates to celebrate others who have earned their laurels through hard work.
We are glad on your elevation sir. May God continue to guide you.
