So sad, popular teacher dies during illness
Life can be so cruel and tragic. Sure, this is not our home, it is only a temporary abode for us, this is a fact well known to all who are of age in this world, yet, when someone takes his or her exit from this plane, those left behind are overtaken by grief. It is a mystery that will remain unresolved.
Death has claimed another vivacious individual, a secondary school teacher in Ogbomoso, Mr. Clement Bamidele Adeyemi, he died yesterday evening during an illness.
He died at the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, where he was receiving treatment.
According to a family source, he was seriously down with an undisclosed ailment which kept him away from the social circle and work for weeks even after discharge from hospital.
He was recuperating already and even attended a function last weekend after associates persuaded him to start going out to assure well wishers that he had really recovered.
“There was however a relapse during the week leading to his passage to the great beyond yesterday,” a close associate told ogbomosoinsightonline.com.
Adeyemi was a vice principal at Ogbomoso Baptist High School until his death.
He attended Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun state and later bagged his Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE).
He struggled through life working as a bus ‘conductor’ and driver in Lagos before going to the university. He later secured teaching appointment with the Oyo State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) in the late 1990s.
He became a unionist within the circle of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) becoming a kingmaker.
Not a card-carrying member of any political party but he was active politically, always commenting via social media on situations in Nigeria.
He is survived by wife and children.
Meanwhile, his burial arrangement is yet to be released by the family.
May his soul rest in peace.
