UPDATED: New Prof Emerges In Department Of English, UI

DR Adesina Bukunmi Sunday was, on Thursday, confirmed as the newest Professor of English by the authorities of the University of Ibadan, Oyo State. 

Sunday, who’s the immediate past Postgraduate Coordinator of the department, got the promotion to the zenith of his academic career effectively backdated to October 2021.

Known for his forthright and firm disposition to life, Professor Sunday began his academic journey in the 1996/1997 academic session as a fresh student of the Department of English.

By October 2001, he had emerged as the best graduating student in his set with a Second Class Upper, narrowly falling short of the First Class cadre.

Convinced about his academic calling, the one fondly called Chomsky and “prof” by his classmates and other admirers because of his dexterity in language courses especially Syntax, proceeded for his Master’s at his alma mater where he yet emerged with a sound PhD grade in 2005.

Professor Sunday, a brutal lover of God and of the Baptist’s denomination, would swiftly continue with his PhD under the tutelage of erudite Professor Lekan Oyeleye in the department, bagging the coveted degree in 2008, record time.

In no time, he had joined the teaching staff of the department on full appointment by the university which won’t close its eyes to a fine product.

The man with immense respect for elders, but no tolerance for indolence, bureaucracy and corrupt practices, has in his kitties well over 20 PhD thesis he had successfully supervised with numerous masters and first degree long essays.

They included undergraduate Long Essays, 47; M.A. Projects, 89; MPhil dissertations, 2; and PhD theses; 30.
