From the Preface and Acknowledgements
This book is all about a journey back through 1955 to 1980 into Government College Ibadan from those who belong to it. It brings together in jest and zest some of the memorable events. In jest, great seeds have been sown, great associations made and we now carry forever, in one form or the other, the mark of a great school. This book attempts to rekindle a bit of it all.
Editors: Bayo Elushade, Leye Falore and Dare Demuren
