Dear All:
Most certainly, great achievements are like the proverbial cork, which can never be hidden or submerged in any amount of water! Therefore, heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS and UNLIMITED PRAISE are in order for our own "SIR" Toyin Falola and Adekunle Ajasin University's 2010-2015 Vice-Chancellor N . Oluwafemi Mimiko on the recent publication of their two masterpieces: SIR Toyin's 480-page Nigerian Political Modernity and Postcolonial Predicaments (2017); and VC Mimiko's 513-page Getting Our Universities Back on Track: Reflections and Governance Paradigms from My Vice-Chancellorship  (2017).  
The two formidable publications have garnered several praise-worthy blurbs from leading scholars and educationists. For example, Lead City University Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences ' ex-Dean Ayo Olukotun has described SIR Toyin's masterpiece as "the overarching manifesto in this well-written and extensively researched work that interrogates the multiple quests for modernity."  VC Mimiko's opus -- which is dedicated to 2009-2017 Ondo State Governor Dr. Olusegun Mimiko -- is described as "a broad narrative on the state of higher education in Nigeria...[which] equates a practice manual for university governance in Nigeria, and arguably beyond."
Both recently-published books, which are being eyed for various top literary awards, are also on the priority lists for review in several refereed publications, including 63-year old Africa Today Journal, published by Indiana University Press; and African & Asian Studies Journal of The Netherlands, published by Brill Academic Press of Europe.
