The authorities of the Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, will today, Wednesday, October 10, 2018, confer a Posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award on famed late human rights activist and patriot, Mr Bamidele Aturu.
A letter from Professor Olukoya Ogen, the Rector of the College, to Mrs Adebimpe Aturu, dated September 24, 2018, disclosed that Bamidele Aturu is being honoured in recognition of “his contributions to the development of the College in particular and the society at large”.
Bamidele Aturu obtained a first class degree in Physics from the Adeyemi College of Education, before proceeding to study law as a second degree, at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.
Commenting on the honour, eminent lawyer and activist Ebun-olu Adegboruwa, Esq. said: “I commend the authorities of the Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, for this great and deserving gesture and recognition, especially at a time when academic awards have been monetised as some form of ransom for financial and political patronage.
“Surely, Bamidele Aturu lives in our minds, forever.”
