Dear Tijani,

I salute your bold decision for allowing the younger and newer generations
you have groomed to take up from where you left your legacy in standing
I personally have benefited from your engagements and outreach. More
recently, I remember our last AFRALO outreach together in Kampala during
the AIS.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Caleb Ogundele
