From CHARLES ADEGBITE, Ado-Ekiti

Former Primate of   the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Arch-Bishop Joseph Abiodun Adetiloye is dead.        He passed on at age 83 yesterday around 1.30am   in his Odo-Owa Ekiti country-home, in Ijero Local Government Area of Ekiti State, after a brief illness. He is survived by a widow, Mrs. Titilayo Adetiloye and two children, Adeola and Adedoyin.

Reacting to Adetiloye’s death, Ekiti State governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, described the late Primate as a “global citizen who lived well, served well and died well.” His eldest son, Mr. Adeola Adetiloye, a lecturer at the Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti and the deceased’s siblings, Chief Sunday Adetiloye, confirmed to news men in Ado Ekiti through telephone that the reverend died at the early hours of yesterday.

Adeola said his father had earlier at about 6pm on Thursday started running temperature suddenly, which made the family to quickly contact the physicians that attended to his health. The cleric, he said   responded to treatment quickly and the temperature returned to normal that evening. But in the midnight, he started manifesting some symptoms that showed he was not okay again, before he later gave up the ghost.

Adeola, who described his father as a disciplinarian par excellence, said the entire family would surely miss his sense of humility and generosity while alive. He described the deceasedas a caring father, who ‘over-pampered’ him and his younger brother till his death. The late Archbishop started his early life as a brilliant student who passed out with distinction in his First School Leaving Certificate Examinations in 1944.

He was a teacher for six years and the acting church agent at St. Paul’s Church in Ara-Yero, now called Araromi at his 6th year. Late Adetiloye developed the urge to become an Anglican priest at a very young age. He attended Melville Hall, in Kudeti, Ibadan, Oyo State, in 1949, to become a priest. H

e later went to England and attended King’s College London (BD), and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. He was ordained a deacon in 1953 at the Cathedral Church of Lagos, by the first Archbishop of West Africa, Leslie Vining.
