Now in its fourth decade, the History Department at the University of Ilorin is flourishing. Professor Gloria Emeagwali, once a faculty there, would be delighted. Professors Saa'd Abubakar, Emmanuel Obichere, Ade Obayemi, H. O. Danmole laid a strong foundation. It was the first to establish the journal of economic history in the 1980s, managed by Gavin. I was part of the place in the 1990s, and participated in their robust seminar series.
Today, the historians, under the able leadership of Dr. I. A. Jawondo, are doing well. The photos in the link below are the faces of the Department when we had a great conversation.  I was able to meet with all of them. I am delighted to report that I was able to acquire a book-length manuscript from there on women and Islamic scholarship that I will soon read. Those who follow Nigerian politics will remember Jawondo…he ran for the office of the Governor. Alas! His Excellency did not have enough "Ghana-Must-Go" bags full of naira and dollar. He lost, but this has become our own gain as he manages an excellent department.
