Moses Owojaiye has written a tribute on his blog on African Christianity.
Adeyemo was an African Christian statesman of high repute. He was a detribalized Christian and a true son of Africa. Adeyemo was a very brilliant, level-headed and one of the true African-Christian leaders with exemplary virtues.
... According to him, "Africa's problem can be summarized in one word: ‘leadership' – inept leadership, corrupt leadership, selfish leadership. We need leaders who do not focus on greed, but see themselves as servants of the people.
