“I am not likely to join those who would describe the transition of Professor Adetokunbo Lucas as shocking. At 89, he was about 36 years past the life expectancy for Nigerian males. He personified public and global health, especially tropical and community medicine all over the world. Known by his international friends and colleagues as “Ade Lucas”,he deserves to be celebrated as Ade Lucas is immortal. His book was our bible. His teaching was laced with humour and only the uncircumcised would not follow the trend. He was a teacher of teachers. Truly he was the last of the “Mohicans”. May his brilliant soul rest in peace.”
