THE EDDY OMOLEHINWA THAT I KNEW

SOJI ADEKUNLE (FCA)

Professor Eddy Omolehinwa was one of my lecturers at the DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTING of the prestigious UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS, AKOKA, YABA LAGOS during my undergraduate and postgraduate years.

(1) He is a lover of QUALITY EDUCATION which has reflected in the lives of his biological children

(2) His rare combination of the frankness and simplicity of an EKITI man, the positive rigidity of an IJESHA man, the discipline and respect for truth and the incredible joviality and constant display of brotherhood makes him stand out among other lecturers of the DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTING of UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS

(3)He was supportive, encouraging and kind. We are very grateful for the role you played in our lives.

(4) He is a man of tremendous foresight, tenacity, boldness and a sound mind

(5) God used you to mould and add colour to our destiny.

(6) He gave his all with dignity and in a style that did not undermine the self esteem of his beneficiaries, who were his students at that time. His sense of humour ran deep, his sense of fairness is unchallengeable and his forthrightness is legendary

(7) Those who did not want to "hear things as they are" avoided his counsel. Those in desperate need of the truth and an unbiased counselor courted his attention fervently, yet he carried his glowing examples of tolerance, forbearance, infinite patience and the high esteem of his students with absolute humility.

(8) He is strong willed and extremely intelligent. Calm, loyal and virtuous are a few personal traits that are obvious, but one that may not be too apparent is the fact that he is very persevering.His approach to challenging situation s is unequalled.He is very objective and a consistent optimist who doesn't wilt or easily give in,or bow to pressure of life.   Just constant forward movement the entire time.

(9) We  GREAT AKOKITES celebrate you today and appreciate your credibility as a lecturer and a scholar of scholars of our great citadel of learning.

(10) HAPPY 70TH BIRTHDAY TO "EDDY FOR THE MASSES" WE WISH YOU LONG LIFE AND PROSPERITY WITH GOOD HEALTH, COMFORT, PEACE, JOY AND SOUND MIND. GOD WILL ALWAYS MEET YOU AT THE POINT OF YOUR NEEDS. ENJOY YOUR DAY
