She revealed that he spearheaded “an informal coming together of a few former students of various unity schools, and turned it into the formidable network of leaders that it is today”.

“The Unity Schools, the country, the education sector, will no doubt miss him. USOSA owes him a debt of gratitude, which can be offset if his legacy is safeguarded,” Muhammed-Oyebode wrote.
