A multi-talented teacher who taught Mathematics, Add Maths, French as part of being a polyglot. I remember that he was comfortable in too many languages that included Polish, German etc. By the time he was leaving Ijebu-Ode in June 1970 to travel for 6 months before proceeding to Saudi Arabia, he had taught himself Arabic.
