Prof. J. Babatunde Ipaye: Rest in Peace

Babatunde IpayeThe GUIDE Association regretfully announces the passing of Professor Joseph Babatunde Ipaye, member of the Scientific Board and African Regional Representative of the GUIDE Association and Director of the Learner Support Services at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), on July 3 in London.
Ipaye was a career educationist who spent most of his working life at the Faculty of Education of the University of Ilorin, where he became the first professor of guidance and counselling in Africa. He fervently believed that online education holds the key towards a step change in widespread university level education across Sub Sahara Africa.
Among many significant projects, he took part in the setting up of the program for Gifted and Talented children at the Federal Ministry of Education in Abuja and in the UNESCO programme on the changing family in a changing world.
