Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - The Ibadan Humanities Conference 2017 In Photos

Prof. Falola has emerged as one of the most engaged and engaging scholars in the humanities in the 21st century. The choice of an Ibadan High Chief and an intellectual warrior as our keynote speaker was unanimous. We thank him for setting the tone for the conference with a seminal and incisive keynote address. He delivered powerfully on his brief. It was a case of 'a mouth sweeter than salt', a prophet recognised in his home. 

A bridged builder, Falola  has continued to honour the generation of African Historians before him while vigorously promoting the younger generation. ‎He has over the years gained intercontinental relevance amongst the academia.
His upcoming 65th birthday anniversary in Ibadan, early next year, offers us another opportunity to celebrate this great son of the African continent. 

Thank you Professor Toyin Falola, for all that you have done for us and will continue to do.

Subject: USA Africa Dialogue Series - The Ibadan Humanities Conference 2017 In Photos

I am happy to be part of the conference organized by the University of Ibadan on the Humanities and Development in Africa. Very well attended, the engagements were scholarly, intense, productive; and the social interactions very cordial. The faces of a new generation were appealing to me. I admire the team from Ghana, driving over eleven hours from Accra; those from Southern Africa were ebullient. How can I forget my own people, an emerging group of new Nigerian scholars. Forgive me, as I hail thee.

Professor Chris Ogbogbo, our leader, has a midas touch—whatever he does, he does well; whatever he touches becomes gold. He is a leader whose style, polish, calmness, poise, dignity and professionalism should be studied, emulated, reproduced, and put to good use. Thank you, great Chris. We cannot thank you enough.
