Tokunbo Wahab: A Patriot Full Of Guts And Vision At 52

By Kayode Alfred

On this auspicious day, as Tokunbo Wahab turns 52, we celebrate a man whose life has been a tapestry of courage, dedication, and unwavering vision.

Born on May 17, 1972, Wahab has emerged as a beacon of hope and transformation, leaving indelible marks on Nigeria’s legal, educational, and political landscapes.

Tokunbo’s journey began at the University of Benin, where he distinguished himself not only academically but also as a fervent student leader.

His leadership during the tumultuous June 12 Democracy Struggle, which saw him confront the repressive Abacha regime, speaks volumes of his bravery and commitment to justice​. This early encounter with adversity did not deter him; rather, it fortified his resolve to serve the people.

A seasoned lawyer with over 20 years of experience, Wahab honed his legal acumen at prestigious institutions such as the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the Wharton University of Pennsylvania​.

His legal practice, marked by his partnership at Wali and Ace, and his earlier tenure at Paul Usoro & Co, Aluko & Oyebode, and Jiti Ogunye Chambers, is a testament to his expertise and integrity.

Wahab’s foray into public service has been nothing short of transformative. Appointed as the Special Adviser on Education to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in 2019, he quickly became a pivotal force in the actualization of the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.
