The University of Lagos announces the passage of our former Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Emeritus Professor of Geography, Isaac Ayinde Adalemo.
Born on June 4, 1939 in Ota, Ogun State, Emeritus Professor Adalemo joined the services of the University of Lagos as an Assistant Lecturer in 1965. He rose through the ranks to become a Professor in 1977 and retired from active service in 2004 at the age of 65. The University honoured him with the Emeritus Professorship award in 2013.
Emeritus Professor Issac Ayinde Adalemo served as the pioneer Dean of the School of Postgraduate Studies (1981-84) and, thereafter, as Deputy Vice-Chancellor (1985-89). Prior to those appointments, he had been Head of the Department of Geography (1975-1978) and President of the University Senior Staff Club (1978 -1979).
The accomplished intellectual whose brilliant contributions transcends the academia is survived by his Wife, Mrs. Patience Olubusola Adalemo, and their three children: Oluremi, Olufemi, and Adebayo.
On behalf of the entire University of Lagos community, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, FAS, commiserates with the Adalemo family and prays for the repose of the soul of Emeritus Professor Isaac Adalemo.
