PROFESSOR (CHIEF) HON. NATHANIEL DUROJAYE OYERINDE: THE FIRST NIGERIAN PROFESSOR
- This electronic book is a biography of Professor N.D Oyerinde, the first Ògbómòsó man to be educated and rose to become the first professor in Nigeria.
- Without any iota of doubts, Professor (Chief) Hon. Nathaniel Durojaye Oyerinde (OBE) was a patriot.
- His efforts to transfer the educational model of Tuskegee and Hampton Institutes to Ogbomoso may be rational considering the reality of the economic situation in the town but the demand of the people for the encouragement given by the British to literary education spelt the doom of his efforts.
- He was well equipped with great ideas, but his community, Ogbomoso was not ready for such great works as at then.
