n IFE PsychologIA : An International Journal - The exit of a giant : tribute to Prof. Peter F. Omoluabi
May 4, 1944 to November 12, 2009




Thursday, November 12, 2009 is a day I will never forget in a hurry in my lifetime. It was a day I got a call from one of Prof.'s daughters thinking that it was one of the usual calls. But the news that followed the call was what I never anticipated - "Daddy passed on this morning." That news shattered my day and left me in shock and disbelief. And up till date, I never believed that Prof. is gone and never to be seen again. Do you know what believing that information means? It means that the face and hope of psychology in this country is dead. What I did know was that we negotiated for him to go to India for a surgery that was supposed to be successful, death was never bargained for. You can now see the source of my unbelief - not only me but several other people that saw him before he travelled. His demise left the very many of us whom he touched directly or indirectly in a state of sadness and anger and to some of us who are close to him, a big gap has been left looking for who to close it.
