  1. This is one of those behind the scene masters. A scholar par excellence.

  2. Wishing him all the best I all his endeavors.

  3. Thank you Onigegewura.

    Your write-ups are exceptionally educative - particularly for some of us who are very keen to know more about the history of our dear country.

    Regrettably, I think the quality of the content of some of your very recent stories (for instance this Ade Ipaye lecture notice) is at variance with the high standards you have set for yourself in your earlier write-ups.

    We want more interesting and educative stories.

    1. Thank you, Yemostica. This is a notice about a public lecture on a subject that is very topical. It's another of Onigegewura's contribution to education and enlightenment. Onigegewura is not all about History. Our focus is CHLAPP [Culture, History, Law, Arts, People and Politics]. I appreciate your observation.
