Professor Tomilayo Adekanye and son were both abroad (while Ayomide was also away from home on her National Youth service) when the news about Professor J. ‘Bayo Adekanye’s elevation to the distinguished rank of Emeritus Professor first became public knowledge (see The Guardian newspaper Tuesday, June 10, 2014, p. 19). The excitement was so much that even before the return of mum and son from the US to Nigeria they had asked the celebrant to link up with the daughter Ayomide to begin planning for a modest family luncheon for celebrating the elevation. That family celebration, for marking Professor J. ‘Bayo Adekanye’s appointment as Emeritus Professor, was held at the family’s Jericho residence on Saturday August 30, 2014.
